Shinde Out of Texas Cup Final

Pratik Shinde will miss out on the TPSL’s showcase game tomorrow as an injury will keep him from playing in the Admiral Texas Cup Final. Shinde suffered a groin strain in training last night and will miss the match.

“He is devastated,” Houston Hurricanes FC head coach Brendan Keyes stated. “I feel so bad for him as he just earned his starting position back by playing some really good football.”

Jorge Vela will also miss the game with a pulled hamstring.

“That’s football, but you do feel for both players,” Keyes concluded.

The Hurricanes will play the Houston Dutch Lions Saturday November 30th in the Admiral Texas Cup Final. The match kicks off at 7:45 pm at the HDLFC Soccer Complex, 14562 Interstate 45 South, Conroe, TX 77384.

Hurricanes and MUNDOFOX Houston Announce Major Partnership

Houston Hurricanes FC is proud to announce a strategic partnership with MUNDOFOX Houston.

“I have been involved in soccer in Houston for over 25 years and this is the biggest deal I have ever done in futbol and with the Hurricanes,” Hurricanes President Brendan Keyes stated. “It’s a great way to start our first season with such a prestigious TV network as MUNDOFOX Houston.”

The MUNDOFOX Houston logo will be featured on the front of the Hurricanes’ home jerseys, while the network will promote matches with highlights, commercials, and player profiles.

“This synergy will be a great opportunity for both parties to work together and unite the thousands of soccer fans to an even more intimate and personal setting while playing at Lutheran South Academy,” MUNDOFOX Houston General Sales Manager Javier Chavez commented.

“MUNDOFOX Houston is also new to the marketplace and we have a lot to prove similarly to the Hurricanes, to this great Houston community of fans and viewers,” Chavez added. “In partnering with community leaders, together we will bring positive energy into our homes.”

MUNDOFOX was launched across the United States in August 2012 and is part of the FOX family of networks.

MUNDOFOX Houston and the Hurricanes were brought together by the hard work of Houston sports guru Danny Gonzalez, who has appeared on various networks as a play-by-play announcer and news anchor for over 20 years. His talent and knowledge of the Houston market brought Keyes and Chavez together to both make a positive impact to fans and viewers in Houston.

Garner Makes History with Hurricanes

The Houston Hurricanes FC announced today the signing of 15-year-old goalkeeper Tyler Garner. In doing so Garner made history as the youngest Houston Hurricanes FC player ever signed.  He also becomes the youngest player to ever sign with an NPSL side.

“Tyler is a great goalie, I have been working with him for a few months now and he is improving everyday,” Head Coach Thiago Reis commented.  ”I can’t believe he is only fifteen years old and so mature as a player and person.”

“First off, I couldn’t believe this kid was fifteen,” Owner Brendan Keyes added. “He looked like a big man and played like one.  We already had two goalkeepers and we wanted to add one more, but I never thought it would be a young lad at fifteen years old.”

“It’s an honor to be on this team,” Garner stated. “It feels great to be the youngest player in the history of the Houston Hurricanes FC.  I’d like to thank Mr. Keyes and Coach Reis for giving me this opportunity and I look forward to proving that age is not a factor.”

“It’s an amazing achievement for the young lad,” Reis concluded. “He goes into the history books as the youngest ever player in Hurricanes history.”

Hurricanes Sign Defender

The Houston Hurricanes are proud to announce the signing of defender Joshua Brieva.

“I signed Josh after watching him in two tryouts,” head coach Thiago Reis commented. ”I told him it’s up to him now to make the starting 11.″

Brieva will join other 11 players who have already made the squad.  Coach Reis is still looking to bring in 14 more players so he has competition for every spot.

“It’s exciting to sign for a team like the Houston Hurricanes FC,” Brieva added. “It is a new chapter in my life. I will be able to improve with this team and with Coach Reis instructing me on the field I can only improve from here and hopefully make a name for the team and myself.”

The Houston Hurricanes have been very busy working on getting the starting 11 and building up the team from the ground up. The next tryouts are February 23rd and 24th at 12950 Sugar Ridge Blvd., Stafford, Texas 77477 from 12 pm – 3:00 pm.  For more information call 832-748-1001 or by email at [email protected] to get more details.
