Carolina RailHawks Update 7/20


The Fall Season has started for the Carolina RailHawks of the North American Soccer League, a tier 2 league in here in the United States. It has been a rough early stretch that saw the RailHawks drop their first two games. First they lost 2-1 to the Indy Eleven, and then they lost 1-0 to Minnesota United FC. The RailHawks look to right themselves against the San Antonio Scorpions on July 23.

The RailHawks struck first in this match, scoring in the twenty-fourth minute. That goal was provided by Enzo Martinez of Uruguay, a midfielder for the RailHawks. From there the RailHawks held their advantage until halftime.

Early in the second half, the game turned when RailHawks defender Austen King accrued a red card for committing a foul. That reduced the RailHawks to 10 men and caused holes to open in the defense that had otherwise not been there. The Indy Eleven broke through with an equalizer at the 65th minute and the game winner in the 87th minute.

    The loss to Indy meant that the RailHawks would have to try and get better on the road against Minnesota, the league champ of the spring season. If that sounds difficult, that is because it is. Minnesota came out early and scored a goal in the 26th minute, and the RailHawks desperately chased that goal the rest of the way.

    Despite the need for additional offense, RailHawks coach Colin Clarke gamely made only one substitution, bringing on Nick Zimmerman in the 64th minute. Clarke likely noted that the RailHawks were getting chances, just none of those seemed to find the back of the net. The RailHawks will try to avoid a 0-3 start when they face San Antonio.
