LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The scoring got started early at War Memorial Stadium as the Rangers jumped on visiting Louisiana Parish Athletic Club and didn’t look back. Mounting a clean sheet and four goals on their way to a strong bounce back match after the tough loss on Wednesday to Blue Goose.
The Rangers go their first through a Parish own goal, after Man of the Match, Francesco Brunetti, played a through ball looking for Cian Lynch. The Parish defender got there first and looked to play a ball back to his goalkeeper which took a bounce over his head and into the back of the net. The Stags only took three minutes to double their advantage after Shuto Yoneno took the ball off the Parish center back and had a near empty net to curl the ball into.
Shuto was in the right place at the right time to score his second of the game in the 16th minute after a high ball over the top from Brunetti bounced off Spencer Barber. Shuto was waiting and off the initial bounce, he volleyed it into the bottom right corner to give the Rangers a 3-0 lead which carried through halftime.
Cian Lynch opened his account for the Rangers after a cross from Cesar Cuellar found the head of Francesco Brunetti who nodded it across goal to Lynch who got a touch and fired the ball into the inside netting to finish off Parish 4-0 in the 78th minute.
The Rangers go on the road for a matchup with Mississippi Brilla next Saturday, May 21st. Kickoff is set for 7 PM in Clinton, Miss.
