Lights goalies carrying team through tight games

The Las Vegas Lights are in a tie for the final playoff spot in the USL Western Conference. Their goalies have helped the team stay in games and get valuable points for the standings.

Lights benefit from fast start by a healthy Danny Trejo

Forward Danny Trejo is making up for time lost to a torn quad last season. He’s leading the USL in goals and assists and was the league’s player of the month in March.

Lights top Pittsburgh behind Trejo’s goal

Lights forward Danny Trejo scored his league-leading sixth goal in the 27th minute to put Las Vegas ahead with the game’s only goal.

Lights can’t get past Memphis in defeat

The Las Vegas Lights had plenty of scoring chances in the second half against Memphis, but could not capitalize as they fell 1-0 after winning their last two games.
