This result marks NM United’s third consecutive draw, and things looked really good early on. NM United took a 1-0 lead at the break, after a solid goal from Amando Moreno in the 33rd minute. NM United would hold that lead and even after El Paso went down a man in the second half after a red card, the Locomotive would hit the equalizer with under 30 seconds to play.
NM United now has six wins, six losses, and four draws on the season. They currently sit in sixth place in the USL Mountain Division. This club will look to bounce back on Wednesday as they host Oakland at 7:30 p.m.
