Last week, we at 3pointsport were at the Stanford University campus watching San Francisco City FC take on the defending NCAA champions with the home team defeating City 2-1. This time, we checked out the PDL debutants in the San Francisco Glens SC.
The Stanford Cardinal were just a bit too much for the newest San Francisco PDL team thanks to an early goal followed by 3 more (one off a penalty kick) to give them a 4-0 lead. However, the clean sheet was not to be thanks to a 2nd half goal from Rajaee Delane to put the Glens on the board. The final result was a 4-1 victory for Stanford–sweeping the SF PDL clubs in their preseason schedule.
The Glens will kick off their PDL season at their home field Boxer Stadium against another league debutant the Santa Cruz Breakers on Saturday May 5 at 5pm . Unfortunately, we will not be there for the inaugural event due to the Quakes playing the Timbers playing at Avaya Stadium. We will be covering the Glens on an intermittent basis here at the website with the photo notebook on their matches being added on the 3pointsport Facebook page. We will also be posting their games to flickr where the sets are from the lower division clubs, from the PDL to the NPSL.
Keep checking for more highlights on the San Francisco Bay Area soccer scene from the US National team to MLS to the PDL and NPSL. If there is a USL club or if the NASL is able to return we will be covering them too. Stay tuned for game highlights from the top tier to the bottom flight.
