(SPONSORED) — Switchbacks FC is hosting Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC on Saturday at Weidner Field.
The Switchbacks are confident going into the weekend after picking up three points on the road against Loudoun United last Saturday. Pittsburgh currently stands third in the Eastern Conference and it is the first time the club has visited Colorado Springs.
Loving Living Local host and soccer mad Brit Nova spoke with Switchbacks FC Head Coach & General Manager Stephen Hogan, who said his team is ready for the game on Saturday.
One player that was highlighted in this week’s pre-game was goalkeeper Christian Herrera. He earned Team of the Week honors after an incredible performance on Saturday night, notching his first shutout of the season in the team’s 1-0 victory against Loudoun United. Herrera made seven saves throughout the match, four of which occurred inside the penalty area.
