RICHMOND, Va. – (Friday, August 23, 2019) – The Richmond Kickers (6-9-4) head back to Breese Stevens Field Saturday night looking to extend their unbeaten streak to five matches when they take on Forward Madison FC (8-8-5). The match will kickoff at 8:00 p.m. and will be available live on WTVR CBS 6.3 (Comcast 206, Verizon FiOS 466) and streaming on ESPN+.
This will be the second meeting in the last two weeks between the two clubs. Richmond claimed victory in the previous meeting, taking a 1-0 road win just two weeks ago. Daniel Jackson entered the match in the 66th minute and found the back of the net just three minutes later. The final meeting between the two sides will come at City Stadium September 14.
Richmond took a point at home to go four matches unbeaten after a 2-2 draw with Toronto FC II last Saturday night. Daniel Jackson continued his form, scoring after just five minutes off a deflected Matt Bolduc shot. Joe Gallardo played a well timed pass through the Toronto back line for Jackson to get the brace in the 23rd minute, taking that lead into halftime. Two goals from TFCII in the second half denied the Kickers their four straight win and settling for a point for both sides.
Forward Madison went on the road to Legacy Early College to face Greenville Triumph SC as both teams battled to a scoreless draw. Brian Sylvestre was in goal for Madison, making one save to record the club’s fourth shutout of the season. The visitors had their chances, putting three of their ten shots on target, all saved by Dallas Jaye.
