Arizona United SC falls to Colorado Springs
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Arizona United Soccer Club scored back two goals in the second half thanks to forward Jonathan Top and midfielder Jose "Chiva" Cuvas, but it wasn’t enough as the club dropped it’s third USL match in a row, 3-2, to the Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC.
With Arizona United SC down 3-0 in the 50th minute, forward Brad Stisser possessed the ball down the right side of the field, roughly 20 yards from the box. With space, Stisser served a long diagonal ball into the penalty area that found the head of a diving Top, who buried the service into the back of the net for Arizona’s first goal.
In the dying minute of the match, Top continued to be dangerous, running into the box and earning a penalty for Arizona. Cuevas took the ensuing penalty kick, and while the penalty kick was initially blocked, the ball bounced back to Cuevas, who easily slotted the ball into the net to make it 3-2 to the visitors. Arizona United SC had one last gasp, but a free kick from Cuevas rattled off the near post before the referee blew the final whistle. Arizona United falls to 3-3-0 and the Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC improves to 3-3-0.
