UPSL National Finals Spring 2022 Preview – Dodge City Toros (Dodge City, KS)
The UPSL National Finals are set to begin this Friday, August 5th as four of the best pro-development teams in the county face-off to determine who is crowned UPSL National champion.
Dodge City Toros, who came out on top of a highly competitive Midwest South conference, have only suffered one defeat all season. Representing southwest Kansas, the team has been on a scoring tear all spring with 35 goals in 10 regulars season games.
Dodge City Toros (6-3-1) have one of the highest goal-differentials in the UPSL and have scored an incredible 17 goals in their past 6 games. A big part of that offense has been striker Ceasar Solis, who has 11 goals so far this season. Also turning heads is midfielder Isaias Delatorre, who stands at 6’4 and has been dominant in the middle of the park for the Toros all season. They will rely on both key players in their Semifinal matchup against Orange County.
Head Coach Andrew Delatorre explains “It’s been a long journey for the club in its first UPSL season. The anticipation for the kick off in Columbus can be felt throughout the city for all of our players and supporters. The opportunity to play at the Historic Columbus Crew stadium is a dream. We are ready to show the nation what we can do.”
“To bring a trophy home would be a big win for not just this organization, but also for southwest Kansas.”
The Finals, held this year at the Historic Columbus Crew Stadium, is set to feature two semi-final matches on Friday, August 5th and the National Final on Sunday, August 7th. Orange County FC and Dodge City Toros kick off this Friday at 8:30PM. Watch for free, live on the official UPSL YouTube.
