Real Monarchs Concede Late, Fall 1-0 to New Mexico United

HERRIMAN, Utah (Friday, June 4, 2021) – Real Monarchs (0-3-2, 2 points) fell 1-0 to New Mexico United at Zions Bank Stadium on Friday night.

A late free-kick goal from New Mexico United forward Isidro Martinez gave the visiting side the win.

Despite New Mexico United owning the advantage in possession throughout the first-half, the Monarchs found an opportunity to break the deadlock in the 40th minute when midfielder Malik Johnson sent a through ball into the box. Defender Daniel Flores got onto the end of it and fired a shot inside the bottom left corner of the frame, but it was toe-poked out for a corner by the goalkeeper and the sides remained scoreless at the half.
