Bay Area Soccer: Hoesen’s brace lead Quakes over SKC, Oakland Stompers stomped at home

FEATURE: Danny Hoesen Named to MLS Team of the Week | Week 9 (sjearthquakes.com) – should have been player of the week, but this is well earned so congratulations Danny Dutch.

Quakes v Sporting Kansas City

Danny Hoesen’s early goals in the 6th and 12th minutes were the catalyst in the Quakes match against Sporting Kansas City.   Additional goals from Shea Salinas to open the second half, followed by a goal from Magnus Erikkson in the 61st minute was enough to win 4-1 over Sporting Kansas City. Felipe Gutiérrez scored a penalty kick in the 66th minute was the only blemish in the game.

The win was the second this season for San Jose and equals the number of home victories from last year.

SF City v Academy of Art

After a 9 month hiatus SF City finally made their 2019 debut with a friendly against the Academy of Art at the Beach Chalet fields.  The result did not go their way as the college scored 3 unanswered goals to give them a 3-1 win.  The match was merely to try out some players who could make the roster at the start of their USL League 2 (formerly PDL) campaign beginning May 3.
