Austin, TX (August 9, 2019) After a hard-fought 2-2 draw on the road against New Mexico United, The Bold are back at Bold Stadium to take on LA Galaxy II at 8:00 PM CST. The last time these two teams met in Carson, CA; Bold controlled possession with 53.7% but struggled to create chances with only four shots to LAG2’s 10. Los Dos snuck a 1-0 win that night with a 56’ Jermaine Taylor own goal. The Californian club has been inconsistent all season, going on long cold and hot streaks. From May 12 to June 29, LA Galaxy II didn’t register a single win. A change of form has come in recent games but not with the regularity head coach Junior Gonzalez would want. Wins against Portland Timbers 2 and Tulsa Roughnecks FC is sandwiched between losses from Reno 1868 and Phoenix Rising. Throughout the 2019 USL Championship season, not one player has carried all the goalscoring responsibility. Ethan Zuback and Kai Koreniuk lead the pack with 5, but Augustine Williams is close behind with 4. Marcelo Serrano will need to have his backline focused on getting all three points tomorrow.
