From Stryker Sports Complex in Wichita, KS, the Little Rock Rangers met Heartland Conference opponents FC Wichita in their first of back-to-back matches on Wednesday evening. But the Rangers will be coming home without any additional points, dropping the match 1-2.
There were no shortage of shots on goal for either team, including an early point blank attempt by Sabelo, but driving one home eluded the Stags until forward Alex Guadron netted one in the 30th minute for the first goal of the match. Just a few minutes later, Wichita evened it up.
Wichita scored again late in first half stoppage to give them a 2-1 lead. This proved to be the final result, handing them their first win of the season. The Rangers record now stands at 3-4-1 with two matches remaining, the next of which is against Wichita on the Rangers’ home pitch. This moves the team to third place behind Demize NPSL and Tulsa Athletic.
The Rangers will have some time to regroup with a 10-day rest before their June 29th match at War Memorial Stadium.
