Hello Tyler FC Fans!
Last night was Tyler Kings first home game ever in the NPSL! Your TFC Kings played vs the Houston Regals last night at the Chapel Hill Stadium. The Starting line up (Photo Above) consists of (Bottom Row Left to Right) Jamal Henry, Nijee Cooper, Riley Alvey, Alfonso Ochoa, Chikis. (Top Row Left to Right) Fernando Arellano, Tony Bravo, RJ Slayer, Gio Sosa, Madi, and Erik Mozzo the Goalkeeper.
After a scoreless first half, the Tyler Kings really picked up their game in the second half. Players substituted in to the game were Jimmy Sandoval for Chikis (45') Chikis found himself yellow carded early in the first half off of a fairly weak challenge. Riley Alvey who was also yellow carded was substituted by Enoch Shipman (55'). Left Back Nijee Cooper was replaced by powerhouse Alan Arroyo (60') who is usually found playing center back for the Kings. Striker Tony Bravo who had the most chances for TFC was replaced by player Sergio Herrera. (78') Close to the end of the game Tyler FC began to feel the pressure of the loud crowd and switched formation, TFC threw on another attacker on the field to try to clinch the game in the late minutes. CDM Christophe Madi who had picked up a yellow card in the second half was replaced by 17 year old attacker Sergio Gonzalez (82'). Shortly after the sub the Tyler Kings #10 Giovanni Sosa was Red carded along with Houston Regal Goalkeeper in minute 85 due to a altercation. Derrick Krone who was warming up to be substituted in the the game was held back due to Gio's Red card and was eventually substituted in for defender Fernando Arellano (88").
After a tough battle the game ended 0-0. Tyler Kings striker Tony Bravo had 7 shots and put 3 on target. Goalkeeper and Captain Erik Mozzo was forced to make 8 saves throughout the 90 minutes making him the Kings most valuable player of the night!
TFC look forward to playing this weekend, May 27, vs the Conference Champions The Houston Dutch Lions. The match last night had approximately 200 people at the stadium and we hope to have more for the game this weekend!
Lets support your Tyler FC Kings!
