LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Little Rock Rangers continued their undefeated start to the NPSL conference season Saturday night with a 2-1 win over conference rivals Demize NPSL.
The Rangers were able to score first on the night, jumping out to an early lead after Leonardo Ferri scored in the 10th minute. The lead did not last long, however, as the Demize were able to tap in an easy goal after a restart. Just before the halftime, momentum swung back in the direction of the Rangers as Ulises Caba Cordova scored off a cross from the right side of the field. The Rangers rode the momentum into the second half as they strengthened defensively and held their 2-1 lead for the remainder of the game.
The Rangers awarded their Man of the Match award to Leo Ferri after his phenominal goal-scoring performance.
“Leo Ferri is an excellent talent,” said Will Montgomery, Rangers’ head coach. “He showed how dangerous he is in front of the goal. I look forward to seeing him get on the scoresheet once more.”
