Zach Loyd returns to sideline, coaches to historic victory, still hasn't texted me back, says his phone's been dead since last Saturday.

In his typical dramatic and over-the-top fashion, Zach Loyd returned to the LSR sideline last Friday night to bring home a resounding 8-1 victory over visiting Azul City Premier FC - the very same Azul City team that defeated LSR 4-3 just 5 days earlier.


Let’s just hope he can find a way to get his phone turned on so he can text me back…

The dramatic change in result can be attributed to a number of factors - more players available for LSR, the referees actually showing up on time, a lack of embarrassing jersey conflicts, and it not being a 3pm hot & humid Sunday afternoon in Fort Worth.

However, everyone knows who the main difference maker was.

Juan ‘Pelon’ Salas manages to demonstrate toe tapping to various Azul City players while also scoring 4 goals on them in the last two games. Looking on, Zach Loyd is very impressed with this skill.

On a night that sees LSR return to contention for the last promotion spot available in the 3rd division of the 5th division of American soccer, the offense took a massive leap forward and exploded for a club-record 8 goals in league play.

Seven different players - Edduin Rodriguez (1), Thierry-Allen Assomoi (2), Fuad Faki (1), Eddy Soldevilla (1), Kalonda Kalonda (1), Ninad Gokhale (1), and star $70 BAM striker Pelon Salas (1) - all combined for LSR’s goals on the night.

That was Pelon’s 5th goal on the season, showing the world why $70 was spent to secure his services.

The stark contrast in professionalism and the higher level of play on display Friday was a testament to Zach Loyd’s quality, experience, and immense presence in the club, things that have never been questioned by the club’s leadership.

In Zach Loyd we trust.
