This Week 8-21-23

Only one match this weekend.

Soccer Bay Area has their take on the Quakes as they resume their season after their Leagues Cup slate.

Earthquakes return from break with reinforcements, but all eyes are on Cade Cowell’s imminent move to Europe

As for the Quakes, they resume play with a 1-0 win over Vancouver. All-star Cristian Espinoza gets the tally off Jeremy Ebobisse at the closing stage of the first half and that was enough to secure an important win in a very tight Western Conference playoff race.

The Roots are also involved in another competitive playoff race.  The writers at Soccer Bay Area and the Roots Blog have their takes on their weekend loss to Colorado Springs.
