All Toros, No Bull: RGVFC end the season with back-to-back wins

The 2020 USL Championship season is officially in the books for RGVFC. While it was a tough season overall, the Toros did end it on a high note with two wins last week.


After going winless in their first 12 matches of 2020, RGVFC came up with back-to-back victories to wrap up the season. First, they dealt a serious blow to Austin Bold FC’s playoff hopes with a 2-0 win after not playing for 25 days. Kyle Sanchez Edwards scored the opener before J.C. Obregon Jr. converted a penalty kick in stoppage time.

Then, in the finale, the Toros scored three goals in the first half before Obregon Jr. added a lovely goal in the second half.

The addition of Juan Carlos Azocar proved to be a big one for the club as he impressed in his debut vs. Austin before scoring a header vs. OKC. It’s a small sample size, but he definitely looks like an intriguing option for the Houston Dynamo.

Those wins definitely confirm that these players didn’t give up on Gerson Echeverry, despite a tough season. They competed hard in every match and finally were rewarded with two big wins. In front of some fans for the first two matches since the restart, the energy was high, the players played fast and free, and they were rewarded with six points.

Top Toros

Kembo Kibato: The young Canadian earned a spot of the USL Championship Team of the Week. He picked up two assists vs. OKC in the finale and brought a lot of energy and distribution to the midfield in both wins.

Kyle Sanchez Edwards: He scored a goal in each win last week and had seven shots across both matches. He combined his pace, strength, and shifty moves on the ball to have two great performances.

J.C. Obregon Jr.: Two goals in a week for the RGVFC forward. His curling effort against OKC was one of the top goals of the season for the Toros.

This Week’s Quote-A-Bull: Kyle Adams

On finishing the season with back-to-back wins:

“It was incredibly rewarding especially as this year hasn’t been easy for the players, staff, and most importantly the fans, being able to get two wins to end the year and help them forget what is going on, for even just a little bit, is exactly how I hoped to end the season.”

What’s Next?

I will bring you one final article this season, likely following the USL Championship Playoffs, to evaluate the roster and who impressed me and who didn’t in 2020.
