ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Santi Moar was a goal scoring machine for New Mexico United during its innagural season. The forward found the back of the net 12 times for the black and yellow in 2019 and is looking to get back to his old ways in his second stint with the club.
“I obviously come from a down year where I didn’t produce as much on the field,” said Moar. “So, for me, coming here, I’m recovering that hunger, that spark that I always talk about that I want from my teammates, the fans.”

“We have 15 girls on the roster and so far 11 of them have put it over the fence,” said head coach Brain Santo. “To have 15 girls, its hard to make a lineup. You can only play nine and when you have 15 that are hard working and want to be out there, it makes it tough.”
