SF City v SF Glens

In what was a goalless draw in the return leg of the SF PDL Derby, Arda Bulut scored off the penalty spot in the 85th minute to break the deadlock.  That accounted for the only tally of the match as the Glens exacted a measure of revenge in their 1-0 road win over SF City.  For this season each team won on the road, as City did at Boxer Stadium on June 2 and the Glens returning the favor on July 12.

SF City v Southern California Seahorses

Barry McCabe kicked off the scoring 9 minutes into the game, while Jonathan Partida and Gerardo Mendoza added to the first half tally to give SF City a 3-1 lead. They never looked back in the second half while Kei Tomozawa added an early second half tally in the 53rd minute to give the team an insurmountable lead. The Seahorses added a second goal but it was not enough as SF City defeated the Seahorses 4-2.  The win was the second straight for SF City, while the Seahorses were swept on the road thanks to losses from the two SF PDL clubs.

Again, 3pointsport is more of a photo and journalism site and we’d rather devote our time and effort towards covering what is soccer, or any other fringe sports, in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Yesterday we posted a blurb on Path 2 Pro Soccer and their podcasting.  This time we’ll take to twitter on who to follow.  We like to provide supporters and fans with the resources to hear the latest buzz on the Quakes, or soccer in the Bay Area in general.

Update 7/3: game recap added

Update 7/4: game time corrected. Kick-off is at 1pm.

 

Quakes v Galaxy

Chris Wondowlowski added to his legend with a brace thanks to an early first half goal and a second half penalty kick.  However, Zlatan Ibrahimovic added two goals to his own tally while Romain Alessandrini rounded up the Galaxy scoring, all in the first half.  Vako contributed to the Quakes scoring with his tally in the 39th minute.  The eighth game at Stanford Stadium (and seventh overall between the two teams) ended up being a 3-3 draw.

Wondolowski’s two goals moved him closer to the all-time MLS record with 140 career goals.  He needs only 5 more to tie Landon Donovan for first place with 145.

Also one article here from QuakesTalk – which is another outside take on the team.   Chris Wondolowski and David Bingham seemed to have a grudge against each other–just me being a fan on this one.

Next up for San Jose is a road trip against the Portland Timbers on July 7 at 8pm.  Next up for the Galaxy is a home game on the 4th of July against DC United, followed by another game on July 7 hosting Columbus.

Updates 7/2: Facebook photo album (notebook) and article from Quakes Talk added.

SF City v Fresno FC U23s

The Fresno FC U23 team continued their series domination of SF City with a 3-1 win at Kezar Stadium.  Alvaro Nogales opened the scoring for the team formerly known as the Fuego in the 26th minute, and they held on to the lead for the entire match with additional goals from Johnny Rodriguez in the 59th minute and Diego Casillas in the 64th. A penalty kick save from Fresno FC kept City from the tally board in the 75th minute, but they found the net 2 minutes later thanks to substitute Ashish Chatta, who entered the game moments earlier. The loss leaves City in last place in the group with only 7 points, and with 4 games left in the season.

Of note was SF City donning the LGBT Pride jerseys for the second straight year.  The team announced online that the limited edition match worn kits will be auctioned on eBay to benefit the AIDS Legal Referral Panel, which assists people in the Bay Area with HIV/AIDS maintain or improve their health by resolving their legal issues through free and low-cost legal services.
