Injury Plagued: SFCSA To Face Off Against Galveston Hurricanes This Weekend
Oct 18, 2017 - 4:50 PM CDT
Genova FC San Antonio travel down to the golf coast this weekend to face off against the Galveston Hurricanes on Saturday, October 21, 2017, at Chester L. Davis Sports Plex.
Genova FC is coming off two wins against FC Knights and a first loss at home vs Twin Cities FC. The Hurricanes pulled off an away victory last saturday. So it will be interesting to see how Genova FC San Antonio can pull the plug on the Hurricanes and without two of their leading goal scorers Jose Alvarez (4 goals in 2 games) and Gordinho (2 goals in 2 games).
Jose Alvarez (forward) out for 2 weeks with a sprained ankle.
Alfonso Galvan (defender) out for 2 weeks with a pulled hamstring.
Eric Ibarra (Midfielder) has been out for a month with a bad ankle sprain and will return for the first time for training tonight.
Gordinho (Forward) suffered a light groin pull at training on Monday. He is day to day.
Ibarra returns for training for the first time tonight at Wheatley Heights Sports Complex and Gordinho will rest until the game on Saturday. The question is whether Ibarra and Gordinho will be fit enough for play this weekend vs Hurricanes.
Genova FC San Antonio just starting to get their groove for the 2017-18 season with a record of two wins and one loss. This weekend will surely be a test for the squad vs Hurricanes. The game against Galveston Hurricanes is Saturday, Oct. 21st and kick off is scheduled for 7 p.m. (CDT) and will be played at Chester L. Davis Sports Plex.
