LOUISVILLE CITY FC | Luke Spencer Hits Game-Winner in Stoppage Time

09/20/2017 10:54 PM

Wednesday night’s match between Louisville City FC an Rochester needed more than 90 minutes to determine a winner.

But once stoppage time ended for the second half, the Boys in Purple found themselves in front of the Rhinos.

LouCity FC beat Rochester 2-1 inside Slugger Field.

The hero of the night was forward Luke Spencer, whose penalty kick in stoppage time gave LCFC the victory.

Spencer was able to attempt a penalty kick after defender Oscar Jimenez’s free kick hit a Rhinos defender’s hand in the box.

As a result of the victory, LCFC earns another three points in the race to win the USL Eastern Conference title. The win gives it 54 points, compared to second place Charlotte’s 48 points, as the Independence lost to Charleston on Wednesday.

LouCity FC midfielder George Davis IV scored the other goal for the Boys in the Purple, finding the back of the net in the 23rd minute.

In fact, Davis IV celebrated by showing off his dance skills:

Rochester forward Jochen Graf responded in the 43rd minute with the equalizer.

Rochester and LCFC will face each other again later this month, on Sept. 30 in Rochester.

Prior to that match though, LouCity FC has two other matches, at Ottawa Fury FC this Sunday and at Toronto FC II on Wednesday, Sept. 27.
