Although improvement was clearly visible, the red hot Sonora Soles proved to have a better collective game than the rookie Coyotes’ franchise in front of a packed out stadium with a reported attendance of almost 7,000. The Soles dismantled the Coyotes 18 – 10.

The Coyotes now fall to 0-3, while the Soles improve to 3 -1.

Coyotes rookie goalkeeper Jose Torres had 12 saves in his first game against the Soles but it was not enough to counter the Soles offensive strategy led by Soles star forward Franck Tayou. Tayou led the both teams with 4 goals and 3 assists (7pts).

Soles defensive player Damian Garcia also performed well in his first game against the Coyotes with 3 goals, doubling his goal total from 3 to 6 for the season.

Coyotes’ rookie players Leobardo Siqueiros and Omar Ledesma continued their strong play with 2 goals each. This is the second game in a row they lead the Coyotes’ offense in points. Coyotes’ rookie defender Misael Villarreal scored his first two goals of the season, both coming in the second half.

The game started with a quick goal by Coyote’s midfielder Omar Ledesma off an assist by Coyote’s defender Leobardo Siqueiros. The Soles then gained some momentum scoring three straight goals eventually taking a 3-1 first quarter lead. The Coyotes then scored the first goal of the second quarter to cut the lead down to 3-2. The Soles followed up by scoring another three straight goals before Coyotes’ rookie forward Andoni Eugui scored his first and only goal of the game, off an assist from Coyote’s rookie forward David Salas, at the 11:06 mark. The Soles then closed out the first half with two more goals to make it an 8 – 3 half-time lead.

The Coyotes continued their “score first” play with the first goal of the second half by Eric Hernandez, off an assist by Arturo Vega, to make it 8 – 4. From their it was a scoring frenzy from both teams, each taking and making shots back and forth, eventually ending the third quarter with the Soles leading 14 – 8. The Soles then closed out the Coyotes with a 4 -2 fourth quarter, finishing the game 18 – 10.

Special note: The Coyotes have scored the first goal in each of their first three games.

Remaining 2016-2017 Games To Be Broadcast On MASL Soccer Channel

KANSAS CITY (NOV, 2016) - The Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) announced the launch of the MASL Soccer YouTube channel, and with it an all-new platform for MASL game broadcasts.

“We are excited for the future with YouTube as our streaming provider. The potential is exciting as we will provide the most exciting sport in the world…to the world,” Joshua Schaub, MASL Commissioner said about the league’s newest media channel.

“In terms of providing our fans with the best possible avenue for enjoying arena soccer, short of being there in person, YouTube’s platform brings us to or above the level of our competitors in the marketplace.”

YouTube broadcasts will allow fans to watch MASL games on multiple devices from virtually anywhere. Games will be immediately archived and available for multiple viewings. 

The El Paso Coyotes play this Saturday Nov 19 against Soles at El Centro de Usos Multiples in Sonora, Mexico. With the YouTube platform, everybody can join the pack and support the team through any device connected to internet.

 

En alrededor de dos semanas, estará dando inicio la Liga Mayor de Soccer Arena, MASL, liga en la que los Coyotes de El Paso participarán a partir de esta temporada dejando su marca.

Por esta situación, el equipo, comandado por "El Profe" Héctor Hugo Eugui mantiene un entrenamiento constante y feroz. También, aclaró que en los partidos de casa no tendrá problema, pues puede tener una lista de 20 jugadores, pero en el caso de los partidos de visita deberá elegir a su mejor plantel, pues a estos encuentros sólo pueden ir 15 jugadores.

El partido inaugural en casa será el próximo 4 de noviembre, en el Coliseo de la ciudad fronteriza, donde se espera una buena entrada para unirse a la jauría, teniendo en cuenta que es el regreso de jugadores como Tomás Campos y Julio Daniel "El Maleno" Frías, así como Juan Augusto Gómez, Jose Luis Acosta y el DT Eugui, todos muy recordados por la afición de la frontera.

Así mismo, se informó que habrá un show inaugural y al medio tiempo con la presentación de artistas locales y la presentación estelar de Elia Esparza, paseña que participa en el programa nacional The Voice.

A speck of magic was created on a rainy, stormy Friday night.

While cars were jammed throughout the city and citizens chose to stay home for the night, a new team was born inside of the El Paso County Coliseum.

The inaugural season of the El Paso Coyotes was broadcasted to the El Paso audience for the first time on Nov. 4 in front of a couple thousand screaming fans.

The squad allowed four unanswered goals to the Dallas Sidekicks from the start of the second quarter to the 7:51-mark of the third quarter, and they fell 14-7 in their home opener.

Despite the loss, history was made—it was El Paso’s first look at a Major Arena Soccer League matchup. It was a night exciting for not only the fans, but for co-owner Gil Cantu. He and his staff envisioned this team four years back and it was a dream come true seeing everything unfold.

“For the weather being as bad as it was, it was a successful night. People still came out and our fans loved it,” Cantu said. “It’s still a learning experience for some of our players—this is their second time playing against teams who have been playing for three-four years. I think we are doing good.”

The Coyotes started hot off a Leobardo Siquieros goal in the first two minutes, which lifted the home team’s spirits to start off. The crowd erupted with beaming joy.

The Sidekicks capitalized off of defensive errors the Coyotes made and scored back-to-back go-ahead goals. El Paso forward David Salas connected with homegrown midfielder Arturo Vega for the tying goal in the first quarter.

“It felt great knowing family and friends were watching in the crowd,” Vega said. “It felt rewarding to play in front of the home crowd.”

The two clubs trades off two goals each, which ended in a Juan Gomez goal for the Coyotes, which tied the high-scoring matchup at 4 to cap off the first quarter.

The second quarter was lopsided in the Sidekicks’ favor. They scored four unanswered goals from the start of the second quarter to the seven-minute mark of the third quarter.

The Coyotes played in a more spread out, outdoor fashion, while the Sidekicks had a schematic way of attacking the unique indoor sport.

“This sport is very different—it’s a lot faster,” Vega said. “It isn’t 11 versus 11; we need to get better at spacing and know were everyone is on the field.”

The Coyotes were then left to play a game of catch-up. They crawled back from the 9-4 deficit by totaling three goals in the third period, making it 10-7 going into the fourth quarter. The way they were competing, there was definitely hope for a comeback, but the Sidekicks broke free with another set of four unanswered goals in the fourth quarter. The Coyotes had a chance at goals multiple times, but could not close off plays.

“We had a good start, but we just got too excited,” Vega said. “It was a hard game. We have good players, but we just have to get better. Every game we are improving.”

El director técnico de la nueva franquicia de Expansión en la Major Arena Soccer League, Los Coyotes de El Paso, es el experimentado Profesor Héctor Hugo Eugui, quien muestra entusiasmo con el proyecto. Además, menciona que es una modalidad de fútbol totalmente distinta a la que ha dirigido a lo largo de más de 30 años en México, "pues las reglas son muy distintas al fútbol de campo, se trata de un deporte con reglas muy distintas a las que me encuentro adaptado, además de que las estrategias de juego varían mucho, aunado al acelerado ritmo de juego" mencionó el veterano entrenador.

“El juego para mí es como una mezcla de básquetbol con fútbol, donde debo ver las atribuciones y características de cada jugador para un torneo regular compuesto a lo mucho de 15 equipos, con 20 partidos por jugar, de ida y vuelta”, señaló el ex técnico de más de 10 equipos en la Liga MX.

Además, refirió que en este tipo de juegos se debe tener una constante comunicación con los jugadores, mientras que ellos deben estar enfocados en el desarrollo del mismo, a fin de no distraerse. “El que se distrae, se lo comen, así que la mejor manera es hablar, dar una voz de aliento. Eso es permanente”.

En relación a la invitación que le ofrecieron para ser el estratega del equipo, dijo que se siente muy contento, aunque aún tiene la ilusión de dirigir en el circuito de primera o en la Liga de Ascenso en México. “Mientras esté con este equipo pondré todo mi esfuerzo”.

“Ahorita me siento muy satisfecho porque con la oportunidad que me dieron me siento útil, porque la gente confía en mí, en mi trabajo y es algo que no quiero defraudar”.

También manifestó que siempre ha buscado la manera de estar vigente, y el estar activo dentro de Coyotes es una buena forma.

El uruguayo expresó que sostuvo ya reuniones con los elementos de la directiva, donde realizaron visorías, para armar bien el plantel teniendo hasta agosto o septiembre, y posteriormente realizar juegos de preparación para entrar de buena forma al torneo que iniciará en la primera semana de noviembre.

Los "Coyotes de la Frontera", por su ubicación geográfica, podrían tener de rivales directos a los conjuntos mexicanos (Soles de Sonora, Saltillo Rancho Seco o Atlético Baja) o generar una rivalidad directa con sus paisanos Dallas Sidekicks, Brownsville Barracudas o experimentar un buen duelo ante el rival que todos quieren someter: el San Diego Sockers.

The EP Coyotes are ready for their inaugural home game tomorrow at the El Paso County Coliseum. Doors will open at 6:30 pm but the Box Office will be selling tickets all day starting from 9 am. 

Get ready to leave a mark at the Texan Classic against the Dallas Sidekicks! The inauguration will start at 7 pm and the game at 7:30. Elia Esparza will be singing the national anthem, Max the Coyote will be entertaining all fans, the beautiful Coyote Girls will perform a great show, and we'll have many more surprises at the game! You can't miss it! Thank you for supporting!

Because No One Messes with El Paso! Because No One Messes with our Pack!

The league was organized as the Professional Arena Soccer League on May 18, 2008, as an offshoot of the Premier Arena Soccer League (PASL-Premier), the nation's largest amateur league. The league was originally nicknamed "PASL-Pro" to distinguish it from PASL-Premier.

In 2011, it was announced the professional league would officially be referred to as simply PASL, while the amateur league would still be referred to as the PASL-Premier. The first league game was played on October 25, 2008, in front of a crowd of 3,239 at Stockton Arena, with the California Cougars defeating the Colorado Lightning 10–5.

On March 17, 2014, one day after the 2013–2014 Major Indoor Soccer League Championship finale, United Soccer Leagues President Tim Holt announced "a number" of teams would not be returning to MISL the following year. In April 2014 it was officially announced that six teams (Baltimore BlastMilwaukee WaveMissouri CometsRochester LancersSt. Louis Ambush, and Syracuse Silver Knights) joined PASL for the 2014–2015 season.

The league announced a change in its name from the Professional Arena Soccer League to the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) on May 18, 2014. This represents a merging of the MISL and PASL names. MASL fielded 23 teams for the 2014–15 season.

Split and re-merger into the MASL

In February 2016, the current owner of the Baltimore Blast, Ed Hale, announced his intentions to leave the MASL and form a new league, the Indoor Professional League. Hale was later announced as the chairman of the league, and Sam Fantauzzo, former owner of the Rochester Lancers, was announced as the first commissioner of the league. The St. Louis Ambush, Baltimore Blast, and Harrisburg Heat announced plans to join, along with the expansion Florida Tropics SC.

However, in August 2016, the MASL announced that the Blast, Heat, and Ambush would return to the MASL while the Tropics would join the MASL as an expansion team. This effectively ended the IPL split with the MASL.

The official sportswear and technical kit supplier for the league is Admiral Sportswear. The official game ball is made by Puma SE.
