After heavy thunderstorms ran through the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex on Saturday, the weather cleared just in time for the first-ever meeting between NPSL sides Denton Diablos and Fort Worth Vaqueros in the Chisholm Trail Clásico. After the storms flooded the Diablos home field at UNT, the game was moved to Denton High School.
The Vaqueros controlled most of the first half possession and went into the locker room at halftime leading 2-1. Diablos did create a few chances on breakaway counter attacks by were denied by ex-FC Dallas goalkeeper Eduardo “Pollo” Cortes.
But it was Lovegrove again just about a minute later, pouncing on a long rebound from a save by Diablos keeper Joe Weber to push the lead back to 2-1.
Then quickly pressing again, Nicky Hernandez got free on the Diablos left flank and curled in the go-ahead goal. 3-2 was the Diablos lead.
