Jacksonville 3, Roadrunners 2
Roadrunner goalkeeper Julian Ramirez finished with eight saves, none of which were routine, but the Jaguars’ relentless offensive attack paid off late in a 3-2 AC loss.
Just 90 seconds after Roadrunners Luis Garcia and Santiago Maya teamed up beautifully to give the ‘Runners a 2-1 lead, Jacksonville’s Amin Myzed knocked home a header off a corner kick to even the score.
Then, with just 11 minutes to play, Jaguar Othon Oliveira snagged a deflection and banged it home for Jacksonville’s final lead of the match.
