Three Thoughts: Electric City 2-3 FC Monmouth
Watkins Makes History
Forward Regsan Watkins made history in the team’s 3-2 victory over Electric City, as he became the all-time leading goalscorer in team history. He scored his fourth and fifth goals of the season in the first half, tying and breaking Jordan Saling’s record of four that was set during the 2018 season. It was also the first multi-goal game for an FC Monmouth player since Ryan Hammer scored two at Torch FC on June 23rd, 2018. Those two games are the only occasions in which an FC Monmouth player has scored more than once.
Electric First Half

The three goals in the first half is also tied for the most amount of goals in a single half, as they reached the mark on July 7th, 2018 at New Jersey Copa FC.
