Solomon Asante’s solitary goal gave Phoenix Rising FC a 1-0 win over Rio Grande Valley FC on Wednesday to register his 13th goal of the season.
The former Ghana international capitalized on a missed defensive clearance to put them ahead in the 61st minute.
He roofed his finish from just outside the top-right corner of the six-yard area to put the hosts ahead.
But Rising FC will be grateful to goalkeeper Carl Woszczynski who made a crucial late save to deny Rio Grande Valley FC’s Carlos Small as his back line failed to react quickly enough to a through-ball in the 89th minute.
Rising FC have now moved level on points at the top of the Western Conference with Real Monarchs SLC.
