Fresh off a major coaching change for the Quakes and a last minute win for Bay Cities FC in the last round of the tournament both clubs were looking for a momentum shift. What was “won on paper” turned out to be a reality as the top flight club made the upstart visitors who became familiar with the stadium come crashing down to earth and ending their run after two games with a resounding 5 to 0 win for the Quakes.
The game was no contest thanks to goals from Jack Skahan, Paul Marie, Cade Cowell from the penalty spot, Niko Tsakiris, and Ousseni Bouda.

While the Quakes await their next opponent in the Open Cup they return to MLS play with another home match against Seattle on Saturday April 23 at 7pm. Bay Cities return to NISA play on the same day and time with another road match to Southern California to face Cal United Strikers.
