The Orange Blocks: streak ended and some numbers
Although the Toros lost on Friday night to Phoenix Rising FC 3-1, there were some good things that stood out statistically during the winning run and the loss to Phoenix.
RGVFC have conceded 61 fouls over the last six games
A big key to the performances for RGVFC has been their discipline. That’s an average of roughly ten fouls per game. Additionally, the Toros have been able to be one of the better-disciplined sides in the USL Championship, 24th on the fouls conceded table.
Clearing the danger
Despite giving up goals, the Toros back line has been able to clear the ball 96 times and committed 93 tackles. The tackle success rate is 69.9% which is pretty good.
Passing is also very important, too
During the recent run of games for the Toros, the passing game has been another one of their strengths. An average of 77.6% accuracy and part of that is due to Isidro Martinez having a season rate of around 78%. Additionally, Martinez leads the team with 21 created chances for the season.
Panamanian forward Carlos Small has scored three times during the run of games as a substitute. The goals have propelled him to be the second best scorer on the team.
The next game: Los Dos (LA Galaxy II)
The last time these two sides met it was in southern California. The last 20 minutes of the match were must-see action and the ending was one of the most frantic finishes to a USL Championship match to date. Six goals over that span saw the sides level at four at the final whistle. The Toros will be looking to get their first win over Los Dos in their history.
