Lane United FC looked much more impressive in its second professional match, this time coming out on top 4-0 over visiting Southern Oregon Fuego FC of Medford. The win is the first for the team after a 3-0 loss to the Portland Timbers’ 23 and under squad.

Midfielder Loren Hill scored Lane United’s first ever goal, a low shot that went into the left corner of the net. And while it would be all the scoring LUFC would need, three additional goals were scored with Gus Bermudez (two goals) and Paul Beach each chipping in.

“We could all take a big deep breath of air and kind of relax (after making the first goal),” head coach Gabriel Hernandez said. “It definitely was nice to reward the crowd and the supporters that came out. It was a nice goal. Plus from a guy that went to high school here, so it makes sense that he was the one.”

And while LUFC did look a lot more comfortable in game two, they’ll need to continue to develop as they join the professional ranks.

“I think we were a lot more composed on the ball, a lot more confident on the ball and we’ve had more training sessions together, so we were able to kind of put our style on display for everyone,” Hernandez said. “It was a lot of short combinations and unlocking it long, and I thought they did that really well. That’s what the adjustment was at halftime and that changed the game.”

With summer nearly over, it’ll be unlikely LUFC will play another match before the start of the 2014 PDL regular season, which commences in May and runs until the end of July.
