Match Preview: Lane United Hosts Club Jalisco in Non-League Exhibition Match
EUGENE, Ore. — This Friday, Lane United will host its second non-league exhibition match of the season when the Reds take on local Liga Unida team, Club Jalisco. Lane United is coming off a week of rest after a grueling 2-day doubleheader at the Willamalane Center against division leaders, Calgary Foothills FC. The hosts fell 1-0 on Friday night after winning by the same margin on Thursday.
Lane United is currently in third place in the PDL Northwest Division after the Seattle Sounders U-23s jumped into second by beating Washington Crossfire. Friday’s game will allow the Reds to stay in rhythm and stay match fit as they prepare for their final home match at the Willamalane Center against the Portland Timbers U23’s on Wednesday June 29th. Lane United’s final regular season home game will be on July 15th at the U of O’s Pape Field.
Jalisco is a local amateur club that competes in the Liga Unida. Lane United hosted a non-league friendly last season against a Liga Unida All-Star team that resulted in a 8-0 victory for the Reds.
“We are delighted to host another Liga Unida team this year.” said Head Coach John Galas “It is a great opportunity to showcase our local talent and provide our fans with another competitive home match. Club Jalisco will feature some of the best local talent and some familiar faces to Reds’ fans with the likes of Luke Connolly, Edgar Gomez and Paul Beach. Club Jalisco has been training for this match and we fully expect them to come out and give us a quality match.”
With only three home games left in the 2016 season, Friday’s game is sure to be a can’t-miss event! Tickets can be purchased at laneunitedfc.com/tickets
