This Week 8-9-21

Our coverage was one game Saturday and a triple header Sunday–at San Francisco, San Jose, and Redwood City for the nightcap.

We were also in Oakland for the Roots return to Laney against Phoenix.

First up, Cristian Espinoza and Nathan were named to the MLS Team of the Week.

The Roots had two games this past week at home against Phoenix and on the road at Tacoma.  Their losing woes continue and Doug and Mike at Soccer Bay Area have the deets on both.
