Espinoza Scores in GA Win

The MLS Generation Adidas team closed out their trip to South Africa today when they took on the reserves of Cape Town Ajax. The GA team came away with their second win of the trip, defeating Cape Town 2-0. Once again, Chicago Fire forward, Patrick Nyarko got a goal, his 3rd goal of the trip, to open the scoring for the MLSers. Espinoza came on as a second half sub, and only 2 minutes after coming on scored, putting away a rebound after FC Dallas forward, Peri Marosevic, had hit the post. Judging by the report, the GA team dominated their South African counterparts, with Stefan Frei being a spectator mostly in the first half, while Josh Lambo was a little busier in the second half.

So the GA team finish out their trip with a 2-1 record, scoring 5 goals while conceding 2. Patrick Nyarko had 3 of those goals with Chris Pontius and Espinoza getting the other 2. Chance Myers once again started and played 90 minutes for the GA team. Myers played all 270 minutes of the trip. Espinoza ended the trip having played 115 minutes while down in South Africa.
