Reno 1868 FC registered their seventh shutout of the season in a scoreless draw against El Paso Locomotive FC on Saturday night at Greater Nevada Field.
Saturday’s match marked 1868 FC’s final regular-season match at Greater Nevada Field and Quakes goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski recorded nine saves to collect his fourth shutout in 2019, his second in Reno’s last three home matches. Marcinkowski was named the USL's Player of the Week for his performance.
The Quakes’ quartet of Marcinkowski, Kevin Partida, Eric Calvillo and Siad Haji were all featured in the Starting XI for 1868 FC. Midfielder Gilbert Fuentes also entered the match as a replacement for Partida in the 72nd minute.
