ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- New Mexico United’s Josh Suggs came up big Wednesday night.

He scored his first goal since 2016.

Suggs helped lead the team to a 2-0 victory over San Antonio FC.

Coach Troy Lesesne said he challenged the Las Cruces native in his 200th career match.

"You’re our captain, this is a moment that you need to step up and really make an impact on the team, and he does that over and over again," Lesesne said.

"It’s more about getting the team back on track. I like when he does that. I like when he holds me accountable," Suggs said. "I think when he tests me in that way and challenges me, and I thrive in those moments."
