The Western Nevada FC Coyotes will attempt to look past a very trying week as they get set to take on the East Bay Tecos Fire on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 5:00 pm at Golden Eagle in Sparks. This match is a quarterfinal match in the Wild West Conference Cup.
Just as the club was getting past the burglary from last Saturday, they were dealt another blow when head coach and general manager Ian Hill was dismissed from the team. Hill was found to have violated the team’s code of conduct and was removed from his positions by a unanimous vote of the players.
Joe Lillie, who had been the assistant coach, has been named the interim head coach for the remainder of the season. “The owners have made their decision,” Lillie said. “I’m fully focused on our season targets.
“I have a very talented group of players and I’m confident we will get the job done,” Lillie continued. “Our morale is still high and the players are still really positive of finishing strong.”
The last time these two clubs met was back on April 29 when the Coyotes won 10-0.
Also this week, the Coyotes were once again honored by being ranked as the number one team in the United Premier Soccer League for the sixth week in a row.
