Republic FC midfielder Rodrigo Lopez has been nominated for the USL Championship Fans’ Choice Goal of the Week for his Week 13 heroics at the tail-end of the Indomitable Club’s come-from-behind 3-3 draw against Tacoma Defiance on Sunday night at Papa Murphy’s Park.
Voting ends on Thursday, September 24 at 9:00 a.m. PT and fans can vote for RoRo’s stellar strike on USLChampionship.com.
The goal – Lopez’s first of the season – came on the cusp of stoppage time as a loose ball fell to RoRo towards the top of the box and the veteran midfielder rifled a right-footed effort past the visiting goalkeeper and tie the game with just minutes left to play. RoRo’s goal also just so happens to be on the seven-year anniversary of the Miracle at Bonney – the night Lopez netted a hat trick to send SRFC to the USL Championship finals.
RoRo has one goal and one assist in 2020 with SRFC.
Lopez and the Indomitable Club’s next match is a massive Saturday night showdown in Nevada against Reno 1868 FC on September 26. The match will be broadcast locally on KQCA My58 and Estrella TV Sacramento, as well as streamed on ESPN+ with kickoff set for 6:30 p.m. PT.
