The Aztex’s defense of their USL PDL national championship came to an end Sunday at the hands of the Ocala Stampede with a 2-0 loss at House Park.
Next season, Austin will move up a division within the United Soccer League to become a full-time professional team in the USL Pro divison.
The Stampede took an early lead in the 11th minute on an unassisted goal from Karamba Janneh to put Ocala up 1-0. The Aztex had multiple shots on goal, but were unable to get one past the keeper.
Ocala added an insurance goal early in the second half on a give-and-go with Ilija Ilic to go take a 2-0 lead.
While the Aztex’s season comes to an end, the Stampede advance to the USL PDL semifinals.
