It's a pleasure to have you on congrats on the win and the goal. Are you doing, Ryan? Thanks for having me. Thank thanks for having me and it was It was. It was a pleasure, uh, scoring and one of those goals last night. Yeah, it was a pleasure to watch. What would you give that degree of difficulty on that goal? Um, last last night, talking to Zach. Sandy address reviews like is that one of the best goals you scored? And I think it has because when I was in theaters, I scored one similar. But what? Almost without an angle and this homeless. I think one of the toughest because The The ball was coming. It was cleared and it was it was coming. It was so high up And just to judge it like and hit it right was The time you had to be perfect. So when I saw the bar coming, I was like I have nothing to lose if I hit it, right. Has to go in and if I hit it wrong Well, the ball will go over so but I think I had a great touch on it and the great finish. So when did you make up your mind that you are going to take that shot? As soon as the ball was in the air. As soon as I saw it pop up towards where I was Was like I have to finish this one time. I practiced those volleys during training sometimes And I haven't had one all season. I've had Two games ago. I had one outside the box and I didn't finish it right. And this one was I have to finish it. So thank God. The timing was right. And, uh, the finish was right. So everything just came out the way I planned. Well, I went crazy. My broadcast partner, Roland Mortgage went crazy. The fans went crazy. Brandon Burke went crazy. The team went crazy. Uh, What about the kiddos when you saw them after the game? Did they say anything to you? Yeah, it was awesome. I mean, After not playing for a while, Um After a tough knee injury. And then thinking about not playing anymore. It's just a great feeling. I thank God for for giving this opportunity to score. If it wasn't for him, you know we wouldn't be here. So I think the man upstairs And after the game. And in a few autographs. Just seeing the kids smile and them comment on the goal and telling me positive thing is just you know, it was it was great to hear those comments again. What about your kiddos? Uh oh, yeah. I mean, my wife was saw her in the stand. She was going crazy. She was She was excited. She told me before the game. She was like I prayed I pray that you you would score and I told her I was like, I think we're on the same level because I did the same thing before the game. I was like Lord If it's your time, and you gave me the time for me to score. I mean, Well, um Just let it come. And if not, just let me have a great game. And I guess he heard my words and my wife's words. And and that's what happened in my son, Santiago. He's a big soccer fan. He's a big hockey fan. Um, and he thinks he's a hardy. He thinks he's hiding. He's out in the backyard and He's always playing, and he thinks he's a haji fan. And there's not. He was like, puppy. You did a backflip. You score too often. Go. Uh, I need to start practicing that I was like, Yeah, You're four years old. You'll get there. It takes time. That's awesome. And now So what? You you're only 20 back of Haji in order to not only overtake him for the legally but also overtake him as your son's favorite player, I suppose. Yes, it's just stuff. I mean. He's a He's a great player. Um We actually have. I invited him like my son's birthday party him and a few teammates. Then from there, he's like a big big haji fan. So I mean, it's I'm happy. I'm happy the team is doing well. I'm happy for Hardy. He's on the road right now, so hopefully he can keep that going and hopefully the team will make it to the playoffs. That's our That's our Jamie. We want to conquer that right now. Has that that goal or or that belief, I guess that's the way I would put it because there's a difference right between something you're dreaming about and something that you truly believe will happen. As this season has gone on and as you guys have more and more success Does your expectation or your belief Go up or change at all, Or are you guys where you thought you would be coming into the season? One thing at the beginning of the season teams took us lightly, like Oh, the switch back. We'll probably just Um Win 340 like the big teams, and no, you know we came out. Our first game was not that great And then from there, the second Second game of the season up, You know, everything started changing. We started clicking together. We started playing as a team, and now the team is just flying like We We understand each other. We understand each other's game. We know where they want the ball played. Now We know we have the fastest guys in the league. I mean, just from from Sean or whoever is in the goal. And where is playing defense and whoever is like in the mid and we were on as a tenor of the forward, we're all clicking. It doesn't matter who's in the game. Everybody's.

"And defiance, But before we look ahead, let's look back. To Saturday. And, um The one thing that you don't want to do against that. I'll pass the locomotive team. Roland is fall behind, and unfortunately in the 12th minute, that's what happened. To the switchbacks. McCauley King scores a goal off of a corner kick. Um and the switchbacks are chasing the game, a position that they're not accustomed to being in. But Don't know There's something to be said for the way that they were able to battle through some adversity on Saturday and being forced to break down a team that wants to sit back once you get players behind the ball. That's their motors operandi anyway, let alone when they go up in early goal, so Think was a huge test for the switchbacks on the road and difficult conditions. You and I talked about the heat. Seems like the switchbacks brought it with them here to Colorado Springs, but they played really well down in El Paso. They got the They got what they needed in there and showing their resilience resilience in showing their bite back in that match. Well, as you mentioned Once King scored that goal. We made the reference to the Jose Merino parking the bus. I mean, they just created a labyrinth for the switchbacks to navigate. And I think that is where it became abundantly clear. The quality that this team has. And I think of Miyagi, Galina and in the Haji Berry. And, um, even Zach Sandy more in a midfield position like this is a collection of talent. But I don't know that we've seen here in Colorado Springs too often since the inception of this team, because that group And give credit to the guys like Jordan Burden Sebastian Andersson as well down the wings that were helping out But they were able to navigate that labyrinth. And I thought that they actually out chanced El Paso for a large majority of that match. 100% agree with you When we saw El Paso go up that early goal, you thought okay? El Paso at another chance, but then Switchbacks started to find their feet. They were able to move things side to side. They were able to create a lot of space where when you and I were watching the broadcast, we didn't necessarily see a ton of openings. I thought it was a really impressive performance and something that was Little bit different from the switchbacks who like to counterattack would like to use their pace to get in behind. But this is that was a match where they were forced to be on the front on the front foot force to dictate. To hell, Paso and I thought they did really well and sort of changing up their identity and changing of who they are. Well, it took till the 73rd made of amici Galina was tripped up in the box. By Una Huma months, Alvis Which meant that Haji Barry would take the penalty. He converts his fifth goal this season. He's now one back. Of the pace in the USL championship against a couple of guys in Santee, Mo. Are and now Jorge Hernandez is up on that list. These are guys that have played two more matches than Haji Berry, and he's got five in five games. Yes, and not just from the spot, right? He's so dynamic and what he does off the ball. His runs are fantastic is finishing the you and I have been lucky enough to see here at Weidner Field in person in downtown Colorado Springs. Just spot on. He brings a Different kind of quality up front to lead the line for the switch bags. Well, the best chance of the rest of the night actually belonged to Haji Barry. Except it was him nearly scoring on his own team ball came into the box. He was just defending. It wasn't a lapse or anything like that. He was just trying to defend it. The ball went off of it. I think it was like his outer thigh and kind of went the wrong direction. But Sean Melvin was right there to make the save. I think, as well as Andrew Pan Enberg played in a spot before Sean Melvin got back. It has a different feel to it with the veteran back there for the switchbacks calms everything down, right? That's something we've talked about with. Jimmy offered the switchbacks Captain at Centre back, but it's a different kettle of fish. When you're talking about the goalkeeping position, Sean Melvin, he's got the experience. Not the quality knows about this league knows about players in this league. He just sort of bring. We didn't necessarily see that in his first game here. Weidner Field. He was caught out a couple of times. But in that game in El Paso, I thought he was strong. His distribution with both feet was really good as well. He's a calming influence for the switch bags. Well, the match ended in a 11 draw that's back to back. 11 draws for switchbacks FC, they get a point move out of the mountain division basement. A win tonight would draw them even for fifth with Austin. Bold who they just so happen to be playing. In less than a week's time. So that might make it quite interesting. Tuesday down in Texas, But for right now, the focus is all on Tacoma defiance, who will take a day deep dive on when we come back to the switchbacks kickoff show. Presented by the fill long family of dealerships on extra sports 1300. Hello. This is your apartment. I need some favors from you. Your cat keeps rubbing against the kitchen island and I can't return the favor..

"The rest of this match. But that might be something that the switchbacks can look at in the second half, perhaps making an early substitution, just giving bury a little bit of rest and sort of Protecting him from himself as it were. Yeah. I certainly don't want to potentially lose him for their hope. In our one week from tonight, Switchbacks FC off the throw in Sebastian Anderson plays this one back to zag. Sandy Sandy plays it back to Anderson. Anderson, looking for the cross from the near side had a man coming right down the middle. The field that was Haji Berry, but sporting KC to first ones to it. And they'll send it out towards midfield. Sporting with it. All taken away, but illegally is Batista's called for the foul there. It will be a free kick and a quick restart from sporting KC right at the midfield line. See how much time is added to the end of this first half. We're here in the 44th minute. Three nil. Colorado Springs with lead on sporting KC KC will have a throwing on the far side of the field. Looking to get at least a chance on Andrew Penenberg before the break. If not get one in the goal. They have it in the 18. And that was a wild shot off the foot there of Tyler Freeman. And we talked about in the pregame Tyler Freeman, one of the league leaders and shots. I don't think they were all like this one. But Not the best effort to try and beat Andrew Penenberg tough angle there, but Can't blame him, right? I mean, they're gonna look to him to get things going and you have an opportunity to pull the trigger. And he did as we're here. Wait and see what to take Talk shop stoppage time will be Off the goal kick from switchbacks FC and A hand a hand ball They're from Sporting KC off the goal kick so switchbacks will have it in their own half of the field ball sent downfield. They're looking for Zach Sandy Sandy have had it but to Casey defenders converge to take it away. Now Macintosh clears it out towards midfield. Still plenty of time for the switchbacks toe work something as A switchbacks players taken down at the mill of field. I believe that was Bevmark in Gila. He's still down. Referees playing in advantage question. Mark Sebastian Anderson with it on the near side sidesteps the defender, now a second one. Plays this one back. And finally the switchbacks will send it out. Because Bev isn't getting up yet. Mark and Gil is still down on the field. I He took some tough contact right around. The thigh, and that's what's being worked on right now. By Jimmy Oxford. Captain by day athletic trainer by night and now the referee coming over too. Check on marking Gila and see if he needs the training staff. And he indeed well, we were just told That we're going to get two additional minutes of tic tac shop stoppage time stoppage time brought to you by the TIC tac Tic Tac shop. Will be a yellow car produced for Sporting Kansas City, too, for that file. That ended resulted in the injury to Mark and Gila Andrew Peters once again out onto the field. The switchbacks trainer He does great work, but you don't like to see him too much. This Ah injury stoppage, by the way is brought to you by Sentara Health. Marking Gila getting helped up. He'll have to come to the side and with it minimal time remaining. Brandenburg doesn't even really have to make a decision on whether to sub him out or not. He can see how he is at halftime because the switchbacks already up a man because of the red card given to Matt constant. They can afford to bleed out the last 90 seconds or so go into the break, reassess things and what is going to be a great first half to look back on and we're going to do the same thing coming up at halftime. It's still some time left here In the first half. They issued the Extra time as mocking Gilo was gained, checked out as sporting KC as his customary plays the ball back to switchbacks FC, They'll have it on the far side of the field in the attacking end, but still far away from Macintosh. I feel like during the halftime break you and I should get into you calling Beverly Mac in Gila Bev. There's going to be a story behind this and I want to hear it. I'm just I just am told things and I go with it so There we go, Um boiler Michael Edwards. It fit on the near side. Switchback so comfortable. Just not enough pressure from sporting Kansas City to there wasn't before the red card. Now, with the red car, just not enough going forward from the host to really trouble the switchbacks. They're able to just sort of Playing through the midfield at ease. This one played back out wide to Sebastian Anderson. He'll send it in the box on Lee sporting KC players in the area. They'll clear it out out of play, and it will be Halftime. But what a first half from the switchbacks three goals one from Austin doing one from Haji Berry and one From me. She Galina, two of them coming on penalty kicks. And as we take a look at Paula Naga murder of the head coach's sporting KC, too. He's letting the referees have it he feels like his team has been hard done by in the first half. I don't know about that. Switchbacks FC feel like they've been the better team through 45 minutes of play in the scoreboard reflects that three nail switchbacks up on sporting Kansas City to when we come back. We'll talk about everything that this first half presented and boy did it deliver a.

"For it and be Sebastian Anderson, who added for moment, but it just goes off of his foot and out of place. So sporting KC, too, will have a throwing. On the near side. Boy, that color scheme for sporting KC not doing anybody any favors, including the guy who's supposed to identify who the players are out there on the field throwing coming. Take it away. Five. Sporting KC to now the switchbacks able to reclaim possession in the middle of the field. Michael Edwards Out to the near side. For Matt Mahoney. Mahoney's past looking for tour is a little bit of his reach, throwing coming here for Sporting Kansas City just about 20 yards away. From their own goal. Good high press once again from the switchbacks, forcing Sporting Kansas City to further and further back, not giving them any outlets whatsoever and that midfield area Run by Casey is headed away by switchbacks FC. Now they'll take it away in the middle of the field is Beverly marking Gila. He'll pass it back to Michael Edwards, who sends it all the way back to Andrew Penenberg got to get the keeper involved. And it's good thing that he hasn't been too involved. That means that the switchbacks are defending very well here to start this match as the switchbacks with a long cross into the box doing can't quite get there, and it will hop out for A goal kick as doing was coming down the near side of the field. This time he scored his goal from the far side so doing all over the place here early for switchbacks FC, which Brandenburg Certainly likes Long pass downfield by sporting is played out by switchbacks FC. So a throwing far side the field right at the midfield stripe. For the home side who are looking to just get something going? I don't think they've even had the ball inside the 18 yard box yet. As we keep bringing up new benchmarks for them to hit in this first half. They got the three Passes linked up, but Have yet to bring into the box and already we're going to get a change here for switchbacks, FC and Coming in for Matt Mahoney will be Batista. So Obviously, Mahoney not feeling right because this is a guy who could go all 90. If you Ask But where? Obviously not They're in Kansas City, so we don't Have our ear to the ground, but honey will be replaced in the lineup. For Colorado Springs. So early substitution used by Brandenburg, and we'll see how this changes things When you look at Lamar Batiste at six, ft six certainly brings a different skill set. To the match. Then Mahoney does is finally the ball comes into the box, and it'll be knocked down by Andrew Penenberg off the cross from Sporting Kansas City, and you think it might lead to a slight change of the defensive formation for the switchbacks. We'll see about that going forward, but as of right now, but he's to switch going straight into that left back spot that was vacated by Mahoney. Mahoney being checked out. On the sidelines as we could see on the television broadcast hereby switchbacks trainer Andrew Peter. So we'll get some confirmation on that will also see what that's going to do for the switchbacks formation, especially in that back for But as of right now, Batista straight into the left back position. And we'll see if that plays a role moving forward as far as what Brandenburg does with his remaining available substitution is here. We're just about 25 minutes into this one. And Batista is in and you could just look at him and see that he's got all the physical tools maybe. Oh, little bit raw is playing, but he's got some good ball skills and there we just saw it is he Maeda passes just overran by his intended target. This is just By comparison, there are an older team compared to sporting KC. But this is still young roster that Brandenburg has put out there and Batista's one of those guys, but Just has all the tools to be a really special players. Sporting KC brings it into the box there. Cross was blocked rolls out towards midfield picked up by Austin doing doing sidesteps Freeman. How he pushes it up the field across midfield. He comes. They're not going to pick him up. So doings like, okay, I'm gonna keep dribbling. Now We pass it to the middle. Phil for Haji Barry. Albury. Swinging it to the far side of the field. Switchbacks trying to build up the attack and the ball taken away by sporting but repossessed by switchbacks FC. Now in the middle of the field midfield circle. Michael Edwards has it. The switchbacks looking at Pressed for just a little bit with Jose Torres his past a little bit hot coming off of Zach Sandy's foot. Take it away by sporting KC too. Lot of movement there from switchbacks have seen not much going forward then and now sporting Kansas City, breaking out the other way on the counter there, dribble it down the near side looking for the cross Good layout. By Andrew Painting, Berg. Keep that passed from reaching its intended target. And as we get another look at this again. It was a good look and crossing their Penenberg had to make this stop, and he was able to do so. And that's where that long frame you're mentioning, rolling in the pregame show comes in handy. Yeah, that was a really good move off of his line to to snag that ball didn't know quite what was behind him. So Penenberg had to make the decision there to come out and claim that one is the ball is played back to Pan Enberg and he just goes long. With his clearance, but just update you on Lamar Batista 661 65 is what he's listed at so as thin as a lamppost for Batista, and he spent some of his formative years with the Gauchos. And that is going to be a penalty kick for Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC and indeed will be Haji Berry came into the box. Macintosh came out hard took him out. And this is a golden opportunity for switchbacks FC to increase their lead and Not to anyone surprise. Haji Berry looks like he's going to take this one. As we get a look at it again. It was a great ball through a Macintosh just coming out there and took out the legs. Of Haji Berry pretty easy call for the officials to make, but a great link up between Jose Torres in Haji Bury, You know, Once ACI Berry reached that ball first made the touch outside around the goalkeeper McIntosh. You knew that was gonna be a penalty kick Macintosh just slut size them over, and it will be Haji Berry stepping up to try to make it to kneel for the switchbacks. Barry scoring a pair of goals in the preseason finale, looking to get his first of the regular season. Macintosh.

"Going right now with sporting KC. I don't think they've linked more than two passes together the entire way up the field. Yeah, You just took the words right out of my mouth. It's 15 minutes into this match. They haven't played three passes together in the switchbacks half yet in this match a quarter of an hour in they haven't collected three passes in a row as the switchbacks break forward again, just a bit of a heavy pass. Gonna run all the way through the Macintosh? Yeah. Haji Barry's looking the link up with Austin doing down the far side of the field way out of his reach. Macintosh will play it up to one of his defenders as sporting KC two tries to Get it over the midfield stripe and then see what they could do from there. Years past number two. There's three linked up three. There's even 1/4 look at sporting KC go, but Player was outside. So there's 1/4 past count. That's the question offside is the call against Barber? Yeah, just straying off that last shoulder switchbacks, playing a high line offered Stepped up well with Edwards that center back position for Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC Sporting Kansas City too well, offside in the switchbacks will just slow things down and play out from the back. A well and it will be Michael Edwards with it in the middle of the field plays it upto Jose Torres. A lot of attention paid to Torre's both against San Antonio now against Casey, see if the switchbacks could take advantage of that, because If he's covered by two or three guys, That means someone's open somewhere. As uh, Sporting Kansas City has it in their own half of the field right at the edge of the midfield circle. Now they'll get it across the stripe. Swing it out wide. Switchbacks doing a good job of getting back on defense. They'll play it into the box cleared out easily by switchbacks FC. Back to Kansas City. They'll have it in the midfield circle pass up is knocked away. Kansas City regains control now onto the near side it comes Sporting KC tries to bring it in again. It's taken away. Good play. They're good teamwork there as it was knocked away. And now on his horse again, is Galina. He gets dragged down. And Sporting Kansas City's not gonna like it, but I don't know what they expected there. Galina went down it was and it will be a yellow car. But look, it was India's defense. It was unnecessary foul. We saw this movie earlier in the game. Galina beats him in a foot race so nothing he could do except drag him down. No. When he tried to be subtle about it, going shoulder to shoulder. Glina had the inside line. Mamadou DEA just pulling him down as you said, picking up the first yellow card of the match. It will be a diverse is health. Yellow card. Diverse is health, mental health and well being. For all men as me, she Kalina been a problem so far, it will lead to a joint chiropractic free kick The joint chiropractic we've got Your back. So we towards the near post here is where the switchbacks are set up. All their players are on going towards the far post here. Only one man over the ball here for switchbacks FC now me, she Galina coming a little bit closer to the ball, Just making the defenders think about it here. And Sebastian Anderson sends it for post it look like a switchbacks player got his head on it, but not much else is sporting KC clears it out to midfield. Inside the circle switchbacks will send it down. They have it just outside the 18 Look to dribble it in here That was Austin doing and now it's cleared out by sporting KC too good defending their bike Aidan Pierre, or result in a throw in For switchbacks FC is they look to add to their one goal lead. One going out off of Colorado Springs, and now the home side will get a throwing. In their own half of the Field is we get another look here. It was off the head. It was off. The head of Jimmy Oxford is working. Ah, replay. Here from the studio. Oxford got his forehead on it was trying to set up. I think Haji bury their butt. Just bury had already kind of broken towards the goal. And on Lee Sporting Kansas City players in the area to clear it out now will be a throw in all the way down. As a long pass was sent out by switchbacks FC Sporting Kansas City in the attacking end, and as I say that they played back over midfield. 20th minute here, Austin doing with the goal switchbacks FC leading one nail. Boarding Casey working through the middle of the field. Now it's played out wide. Look to dribble it in a couple of defenders converge, and they take it away. Austin doing and now Zach Sandy ends up with it. Sandy long past for Haji Berry is the onside you Betty is buried to Galina Me, she galina into the box, and I believe that one was saved by candle Macintosh I think itwas but a great save if he did make it because me she, Galina was in his area once again in a textbook break forward from the switchbacks, pushing forward Berry beautifully through to Galina. Alina swings that one in toward goal And, as you said, well saved by Kendall McIntosh, but a brilliant break from the switchbacks, just splitting that sporting Kansas City to defense and putting them under all kinds of pressure. Getting in behind once again with the speed of Galina and bury Mark my words me she going is going to get one tonight. He's just he's been too much of a problem so far. This corner kick brought to you by Pikes Peak National Bank Bank. Well be well cheer loud. So yet another corner. This makes Believe five for the switchbacks in the first half is the ball is sent in is poked away by Macintosh, headed back in by Anderson. Now both teams heading it. Either direction. Now Casey.

"Taking on Sporting Kansas City to on both teams looking for their first win of the season Switchbacks FC would I think even take just a result tonight. They just want to see as Roland you mentioned before. This is still about finding their den identity. It's very much about them. Here tonight, but At the same time, Nothing you know, makes you better better than winning right. So the switchbacks definitely want to get a result here tonight. Yeah, they certainly do. We talked about it already Such a difficult place to go play against a really quality organization that knows exactly what they're doing. They've been doing it for years. They've been playing the same way now for a long time. It's gonna be a really difficult test for the switchbacks. We look at those first two road games for them. Despite being separated by almost a couple weeks, those or two Very difficult test. This obviously the second one, but I'm excited with the switchbacks. Line up Good to see Pan Enberg and goal. See what he's about, obviously had a great college career, but a good strong experience line up for the switchbacks. If you had a narrow down keys to the contest tonight. What's one thing you want to see? Here? Let's just say in the 1st 10 or 15 minutes. What would you like to see from the switchbacks other than multiple goals? Well, I think they're gonna be doing Almost what they did in San Antonio, where they like to sit back and then try to hit quickly on the counter against a sporting Kansas City to side that likes to possess the ball. What we need to see. I think early on is just about the space. You mentioned that they're being too much space between that midfield for in the back for a swell and then just how isolated Haji Berry gets we saw against San Antonio, he was dropping. So deep to try to start the play right so he could get the ball. There was just nobody in front of him. There was no outlet for the switchbacks when he was trying to when he was forced into doing that, And so I think for the switchbacks, they've got to keep things a little bit more compact and when they are able to break use their with used the players that they have overlapping used the speed of players like Austin doing in wide positions. I think if they could do that Early on, just absorb some of the pressure early on from Sporting Kansas City. They can have some success in this match before we get things going from Kansas City. Let's pause. 10 seconds for station identification. You're listening to switch back Soccer on extra sports. 1300 Colorado Springs Accumulated fictions live from Olympic City Yusa face is extra sports 1300 So one more time running through the lineups before we get this one underway for switchbacks FC. It will be the former demon deacon Andrew Payne Enberg getting his first start in a switchbacks uniforms similar the rest of the way. Sebastian Anderson, Michael Edwards, Jimmy Oxford and Matt Mahoney are in front of him on the back line. You have Beverly mocking Gila.

We had our first McDevitt corner kick of the evening. This corner kick brought to you by McDevitt Law firm. We are in your corner off the throwing. Switchbacks have it in the attacking end, Mahoney will get it to the near side here for Galina. Me, she Galina trying for the cross, and I think that one was deflected out. Apparently not.

It found its way up to Haji Berry. Wonderful strike off the right foot of Barry just catching the middle section of that cross bar. But this is a fantastic start from the switchbacks they're showing. Exactly what head coach Brandenburg wanted them to show the energy coming out. Ready for the fight here. They've already shown that inside the 1st 90 seconds. Yeah, taking the game to their opponent.
