Rangers Take Early Lead, but Fall Late to Joplin
May 21, 2016

Mauricio Hernandez gave the Little Rock Rangers their first lead of the conference season when he scored on a tap in via a cross from Feedinand Matebu. The Rangers kept their 1-0 lead until extra time of the first half when the Demize evened the score with a penalty kick to knot the game at 1 going into to halftime.

Late in the second half, playing a man down, Joplin managed to score the go ahead goal on a ball mishandled by the Rangers defense, setting up a one on one with Herrera who got his first start in goal for the Rangers. The Rangers pushed for a late equalizer, but were unable to do so.

Up next for the Rangers: A stretch of four straight home games, with the first being Saturday, May 28th against the Dutch Lions. Tickets for all four games can be bought online at LittleRockRangers.com
