- Juan Carlos Azocar debuted with RGV FC, earning 61 minutes adding one total shot, one on target and created one chance. Juan Carlos Obregon Jr. and Kyle Edwards electrified the pitch in front of 700+ fans. Edwards was able to score the lead for the Toros in the 41st minute after a great well-fought header to goal, while scoring his second career goal. Obregon Jr. closed off the matchup by striking a penalty kick past Austin’s goalkeeper.
