An outstanding and historic 2021 USL Championship regular season comes to an end on Saturday as El Paso Locomotive takes on Rio Grande Valley FC Saturday. After 31 games, El Paso Locomotive has only lost three times, emphatically claiming the top of the Mountain Division. The team has boasted an unprecedented 25-game unbeaten streak at Southwest University Park that dates back to July 2020, including the playoff games of the 2020 postseason. Now as the final game of the season approaches, El Paso Locomotive is primed to continue making history with a third consecutive run towards the USL Championship Final.
Momentum is completely on El Paso’s side. In the last two matches, Los Locos have outscored their opponents 7-0 and are ramping up to end the season carrying that momentum in full. First, however, Locomotive has to make a stop in H-E-B Park. In the last visit to Edinburg, Texas, Locomotive fell to a scoreline of 3-2. Rio Grande Valley FC will be leaving it all on the field as the match is an absolute must-win for the Southern Texas team in order to keep their playoff dreams alive. Both clubs have a lot to play for, setting the stage for what should be an electric finale to the 2021 regular season.
