Road losing streaks grows for Republic FC

Republic FC lost its third consecutive USL Pro road match Saturday night, 2-1 to the Richmond (Va.) Kickers, the team reported.

Adam Jahn gave Republic FC (9-6-2) a 1-0 lead in the 64th minute. He took a cross from Rodrigo Lopez and headed the ball into the goal.

But Richmond (9-1-8) tied it in the 66th minute. Jason Weisley headed the ball to fellow substitute Matthew Delicate, who got behind the defense. Going one-on-one against goaltender Jake Gleeson, Delicate sent the ball into the back of the net.

Delicate struck again for the decisive goal in the 78th minute. George Davis IV attacked down the left side before crossing the ball on the ground to Delicate, who shot the ball into the near side of the goal.
