Reno 1868 FC Grabs First Win of the Season

Posted: Updated:

Two of the most prominent talents to come out of the Silver State helped propel Reno 1868 FC to its first win of 2018 Saturday night in Portland.

A Danny Musovski brace helped carry Reno past Portland Timbers 2, 2-1  in the waning minutes of Saturday’s Western Conference showdown.

The Henderson native took in a pass from forward Antoine Hoppenot  and fellow Earthquakes draftee Mo Thiaw in the 89th minute to complete a thrilling comeback for the boys in blue. 

Musovski’s second-half surge was aided by his former UNLV teammate and Sparks native Kevin Partida, who worked the defensive end of the midfield to help Reno find multiple second-half chances. Partida’s work from the defensive midfield spot after being subbed in at halftime helped Musovski and others find rhythm to come back from a 1-0 halftime deficit.

Despite the Victor Arboleda goal in the 38th minute, Reno continued with a relentless attack until Musovski found the back of the net twice. 

Reno 1868 FC returns home to Greater Nevada Field on April 28 to take on OKC Energy FC at 6:45 p.m. The first 1,868 fans will receive a free soccer ball courtesy of Renown Health and Hometown Health. Tickets for that match and all matches can be found at
