Las Vegas, NV – Eric Wynalda’s Las Vegas Lights Football Club once again provided wonderfully entertaining performance for their home faithful, with an absolutely dominating 5-nil victory over the visiting Tacoma Defiance on Saturday in front of a crowd of 7,805.
From the opening kick on Saturday, the Lights were paced by the pair of Irvin Parra and Tabort Etaka Preston, as the Defiance defense had absolutely no answer for the dominant duo. Preston got things started in the 11th minute when he deftly took a pass and expertly slotted the ball past Defiance goalie Trey Muse to give the home team a 1-0 lead.
After the game, Wynalda explained the thinking behind electing to shift Preston from the wing to an upfront striker, positioned just ahead of Parra: “This was kind of a risk, to throw Preston out there, He (Preston) is normally a winger; we put him up top tonight, and he (totally) delivered,” commented Wynalda, before continuing “it was a bit of a surprise for us…but for the most part, we’re thrilled with Preston, that was fantastic,” Wynalda said regarding the 20 year-old Cameroonian, in addition to praising his pace, and the additional pressure it puts on the opposition’s fullbacks.
