The Ghanaian playmaker Solomon Asante helped Phoenix Rising to a 1-0 win over Orange County SC at the Championship Soccer Stadium on Saturday evening.
The win also marks the first time PRFC has beaten OCSC on the road in the regular season since rebranding Arizona United SC prior to the 2017 season.
Back in Saturday night’s competition were two former Orange County players, Phoenix Rising goalkeeper Andre Rawls and midfielder Aodhan Quinn.
Asante started the game and lasted until he was substituted on in the 84th minute.
The only goal of the game came in the 32nd minute through a chip from PRFC striker Darren Mattocks.
Asante scored 8 goals and provided 6 assists in 22 games for Rising in the Western Conference.
