This Week 6-5-23

Our game of the week was here.

Doug at Soccer Bay Area and Jon at the Oakland Roots Blog have their takes on the Soul’s win over Stockton Thursday.  The team is currently overlooked with the Glens also on a roll–both clubs could end up taking the top two spots in the division.  With both teams remaining undefeated their match could determine who will end up first.
