Burgos' Dime at Swope Park Earns Reno 1868 FC's Assist of the Season

It was 3-1 in the closing minutes of Reno 1868 FC's crucial away match at Swope Park back on July 30. 

Reno was cruising to a huge win on the road when Junior Burgos delivered one of the best passes all season to Seth Casiple to make it 4-1 in stoppage time. 

Burgos found Casiple nearly from the halfway line on the near sideline. The El Salvador international curled his delivery right to Casiple at the top of the box as Casiple lobbed it over the Swope keeper to complete a beautiful sequence. 

That assist just nine minutes after coming on was one of three assists by Burgos this season. Reno finished the season with 17 wins, a USL record 75 goals and a playoff appearance in the club's inaugural season.
