FORT WORTH, Texas _ Vaqueros playmaker Hilton Ngwa produced a stellar effort on Thursday despite the losing scoreline as the Vaqueros fell 4-3 to the top team in the NPSL South Central Conference at Texas Wesleyan University’s Martin Field.
The match was the Vaqueros’ third match in five days.
FC Dallas’ two home grown midfielders, Victor Ulloa and Kellyn Acosta, put in stellar performances against the in-state rivals, the Houston Dynamo, setting the foundation for a comfortable 2-0 victory to win the season series.
As the dual-pivot in front of the defense, their strong play in the midfield was able to dictate the pace of the game and each hit crosses to Fabian Castillo where the young Colombian proceeded to tear up the Dynamo defense, leaving the ball in the back of Tyler Deric’s net.
