A Little Bit About Phoenix Rising  

One run ends but another continues
Santi Moar's run of scoring goals in consecutive regular-season matches ended at 7 last weekend. His streak matched the club record for most consecutive regular-season matches with a goal (tying Solomon Asante's streak in 2019). Moar set the club record for most consecutive matches with a goal to start a season (6).

Despite not scoring a goal, Moar did notch an assist, which gives him a goal or an assist in eight-straight matches. The club record for consecutive matches with a goal or assist is 9, set by Solomon Asante in 2019.

Chasing more history
Phoenix Rising comes into the night having scored in 19-straight regular-season matches. That extends the club's second-longest streak of consecutive regular-season matches with a goal. The previous second-longest mark (17) was set in the 2016 season as Arizona United. The club record is 29 matches, set over 2019 and 2020. The last time the club was shut out in a regular-season match was on July 25, 2020, in a 1-0 loss to Orange County.
