Through the first three matches of the Rowdies' season, Dixon has made two appearances off the bench. Most recently, the Dynamo homegrown midfielder played the final 25 minutes of Tampa Bay's 4-3 loss to the Atlanta Silverbacks. Dixon and the Rowdies will head to south Florida this weekend to take on the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers on Satuday night at 7:30 p.m.
Brian Ownby has become a regular for his hometown club since joining the Kickers on loan in March. A week after playing 74 minutes and recording an assist in the 4-1 win over the Charleston Battery, Ownby started and played 83 minutes in last week's 4-1 win over the Rochester Rhinos. The second-year midfielder had one shot attempt in the match as the Kickers improved to 2-0-1 on the season.
Joining Ownby in Richmond is a familiar face to Dynamo fans. Last week, the club announced the signing of former Dynamo midfielder Joseph Ngwenya. The Zimbabwean striker scored eight MLS goals across two stints with Houston and recorded goals in his first two appearances for Richmond.
The Kickers are off this weekend and resume play on May 3 when they travel to North Carolina to take on the Wilmington Hammerheads.
