Lights out host Ben Gotz goes over the Lights 2-1 win over the Portland Timbers 2.
Ben Gotz talks about a big Lights FC win as well as some roster turnover as the July transfer window approaches.
Lights FC defender Jorge Guillen-Torres is happy to be back on the field. The 23-year-old was out January 23 to April 27 with a foot injury. He has now started the Lights’ last three games. He made a very disciplined step-by-step recovery. That’s why he could step back on the field. In the first game, you cannot notice he’s been 12 weeks out. He performed very good physically.
The Lights are trying to turn on their quality this week. The team is struggling in the final third despite a 2-0-2 record. Only one Lights’ goal so far has come in the run of play. The team is using its second bye week to correct this. You look at the training and they’re making a lot of passes and a lot of good plays. But in the games, no. In the (final third), the quality is very, very short.
Ben Gotz recaps Lights FC’s 1-1 draw with Sacramento Republic FC, including Freddy Adu’s debut.
Highlights of Lights FC’s 2-1 win over the Swope Park Rangers.
The Lights FC has its home opener 8 p.m. Saturday against rival Reno 1868 FC. The Lights have not been shy about their feelings towards “Nevada’s other FC.” There is no other way to say it: This is exactly who we wanted to play for our inaugural (United Soccer League) home match. Beat Reno. Early and often. Every time. That will always be a core goal of our club. The Lights play Reno three times this season, but only once at home. The winner of the three-game series gets a trophy: the Silver State Cup. The Lights hope the rivalry draws plenty of people to Cashman Field.

The Lights FC are going to be bright in their inaugural season Las Vegas’ United Soccer League club unveiled its home jerseys Wednesday at sponsor Zappos’ Downtown campus The jersey features a black background with the Lights logo below the neck and Zappos’ logo across the chest, but there’s also neon blue, yellow and pink throughout “It’s very different from other teams,” Lights midfielder Julian Portugal said. “Even pro teams in Spain, England, they have generic jerseys. This is different. I like it.” The neon accents were designed by Zappos art director Fernando Cabestany “It’s flashy, and I think that’s what we want to represent,” Lights defender Zak Drake said. “Las Vegas is a flashy city, so the jersey represents it really well.”
