Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC (H) vs Phoenix Rising FC

  • Last time out: Switchbacks drew away, 2-2, to Sacramento Republic. Phoenix drew scoreless at home to Orange County SC. The two teams are just above the line for the conference playoffs tied at 34 points. Rising are behind on the calendar however and have 2 more matches yet to play; 9 total. Their last 3 of the season are at home. Switchbacks, the home side this weekend, ought to be highly motivated to take advantage while they can.
  • Players to watch for: Colorado Springs is near the top of the league as a team in goals scored this season. Their main keeper, Moise Pouaty, however, is also one of the league leaders in saves made. Lately, Switchbacks have been in something of a scoring slump. More pressure for their talented No. 1.
