Derby City Rovers notched their first USL Premier Development League win of the season with victory over South West Virginia Kings Warriors 3-0 last Thursday.

Alejandro Garcia, who will be playing at the University of Cincinnati next fall, scored a first half brace within the space of a minute, while Suleiman Thomas sealed the victory in the second half eight minutes from time.

Goalie Dalyan Hawes saved a 73rd minute penalty and made six saves in the game, including a couple of crucial ones.

The win gives Rovers (formerly River City Rovers) four points on the season (1-3-1) and a tie for fifth place in the division with Kings Warriors (1-2-1). They return to PDL action June 20 and 21 with back-to-back games against West Virginia Chaos. They make their home return June 26 against the same West Virginia team at  Woehrle Field ( 7:30 p.m).
