It was a week of mixed results for Puerto Rico FC. Playing in their 2nd and 3rd straight road games, a mid week match vs Rayo OKC, and last night against Tampa Bay, PRFC were looking to secure some positive results. Their 3 game road trip would end in only 1 tie and 2 losses.

In their only positive result, a 2-2 tie against Rayo OKC, Puerto Rico were leading in this game. In fact they were leading 2-0 with less than 10 minutes to play. A penalty kick in the 90th minute tied the game, and for the 2nd time, PRFC had a win snatched away late in a match.

But after their Wednesday game, PRFC were in Tampa Bay against the Rowdies. Tampa bay, which has a good squad of experienced former MLS starts like Jeremy Hall, Eric Avilla, Freddy Adu, and international players like Georgi Hristov, Neil Collins, and Joe Cole, were easily able to put away PRFC 3-0. It was former England internation Joe Cole who got the scoring started early with this nice bicycle kick:

Early in their first season as a team, a few players to keep an eye on for the rest of the season:

Hector Ramos, from Maunabo Puerto Rico, leads the team with 3 goals in 4 matches. The 26 year old, who played with the previous NASL team in Puerto Rico, as well as C.D. Aguila and A.D. Isidro both from El Salvador, and Al-Qadisiyah FC from Saudi Arabia.

Tyler Rudy, former New England Revolution midfielder from last year’s squad, has started in all 4 games so far, scoring 1 goal. Only 22 years old, Rudy seems to be an early season favorite for the starting 11.

Ramon Martin Del Campo, 23 years old, is on loan from one of Costa Rica’s top teams, Saprissa. He has also played in all four games so far. He is also getting his first minutes as a pro.
