Armstead & Wylie Updates; Fuego Win Their Opener

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

Bullard star basketball guard, Aaric Armstead is getting closer to making a decision about where he'll play college ball. The Chicago transplant is in the midst of setting up official visits to his three front running schools. They are New Mexico, Hawaii, and Arkansas. There are others still in the mix like Northridge and San Jose State. Fresno State has still not contacted the Armsteads. KMPH will keep you posted as the family continues to move through the process.

Former bulldog wide receiver and punt returner, Devon Wylie tells KMPH that the Denver Broncos and the Detroit Lions are the two squads showing him the most interest heading into the NFL draft. Wylie has done nothing but impress in every public appearance he's made in front of the scouts. The NFL draft begins this Thursday. Wylie, most likely will hear his name called on Saturday.

 

FRESNO- The 2011 PDL Regular Season Champions have kick-off their new campaign with a convincing 4-1 win over the L.A. Misioneros, in front of 4,273 fans on a sunny afternoon at Chukchansi Park.  It is the 2nd largest Opening Night attendance for the Fuego and the best for a Sunday game.

The Fuego were in control from the start and in the 30th minute rookie Alex Caceres opened the scoring after a perfect pass from Emmanuel Ochoa. The star of the game, though, was Fresno Pacific University's product Paul Islas, who, after a 2-year hiatus, has rejoined the Fuego. With assists from veteran Gaston Cignetti and Gustavo Silva, Islas scored back-to-back goals in the first half.  The Misioneros were able to find the net early in the 2nd half but Araia Berhane's sealed the Fuego's Opening Night win in the 57th minute. 

The Fuego will travel to Los Angeles next Sunday to meet the Misioneros at 5pm. The next home game will be on Saturday May 5th, when the Fuego will host FC Tucson at 7 pm. The first 1,000 fans will receive a free Fuego t-shirt, courtesy of Marquez Brothers and El Mexicano Brand. It will be a whole day Cinco de Mayo celebration in Downtown Fresno with Univision hosting their annual Cinco de Mayo event at Fulton Mall. 

In collaboration with Univision Radio, the Fuego will continue to provide free game passes to fans for all home games. Fans just need to call Univision Radio at (559) 430-8500 or visit the Fuego Facebook Fan page.
