The Quakes run in the MLS is Back tournament came to an end last Saturday with a 4-1 loss to Minnesota United. The team was once again handed a loss to the Loons similar to their match on March 7 in which they lost 5-0. That meeting was the last regular season game before the entire schedule was suspended and eventually cancelled due to the Covid-19 global pandemic.
The Quakes were unable to dominate the game thanks to 2 goals in the 20th minute from Robin Lod and Jacori Hayes. While Magnus Eriksson was able to capitalize his penalty kick goal in the 50th minute, Luis Amarilla put the game out of reach in the 56th minute with Marlon Hairston scoring the final goal in the 86th minute. Twice this year Adrian Heath has dominated the coaching against Matias Almeyda.
The highlights and summary are from the team. The next games are to be determined with the possibility of the Quakes playing home games sometime later this month through November 8, with the playoffs commencing a week later with MLS Cup to be tentatively held on December 12.
Looks like the Roots will be returning to play with a benefit event. Both the team and The Beatiful Blog has the deets. Of note: the report is from Thursday July 30 before the Quakes match.
