Aguiluchos v SF City (US Open Cup) revisited

This week 12-10-18

There was a championship match to determine the Major League Soccer champion.  The regular season title went to the New York Red Bulls but to the victor goes the spoils as Atlanta United missed out at the best record and having to settle for 2nd place in the Eastern Conference.  However, the second year team ended up getting the last laugh with a 2-0 win over the Portland Timbers before a crowd of 73,019. Josef Martinez (39th minute) and Franco Escobar (54th minute) accounted for the scoring.

With the 2018 MLS season complete all eyes turn in to the expansion draft for FC Cincinnati and the various “hot stove” news regarding MLS.  The season openers and full schedule for 2019 will be announced soon, with training camp to begin in late January.

And yes, there were two UPSL post-season games.  First up the Oakland Stompers traveled on the road to Reno to play the Nevada Coyotes.  However their run came to an end with a 3-0 loss.

The second Bay Area UPSL team JASA Redwood City hosted Napa Sporting and came out with a 2-1 win.

And a day at Standard Deviant Brewery watching the MLS Cup match.  Thanks to them for hosting, and to SF City and Street Soccer for sponsoring the festivities.  A shoutout goes to the late and great FootySF, which started the event in 2013 and in 5 years has become a tradition.

Latest News

Looks like we have a bit of “hot stove” news today.  The San Jose Earthquakes just announced some major roster moves in anticipation of the 2019 season.  Some familiar names will be returning, while others will not.

NEWS: Earthquakes Announce Roster Moves Ahead of 2019 MLS Season (sjearthquakes.com)

The San Jose Earthquakes announced today that the club has exercised 2019 contract options on five players: goalkeeper Matt Bersano and defenders Harold Cummings, Paul Marie, Jimmy Ockford and Kevin Partida.

The Earthquakes will not exercise options on five players: defender Yeferson Quintana; midfielders Jahmir Hyka and Chris Wehan; and forwards Danny Musovski and Mohamed Thiaw.

The following players are under contract for the 2019 season: goalkeepers JT Marcinkowski and Andrew Tarbell; defenders Francois Affolter, Jacob Akanyirige, Guram Kashia, Nick Lima, Joel Qwiberg and Shea Salinas; midfielders Eric Calvillo, Magnus Eriksson, Luis Felipe, Gilbert Fuentes, Anibal Godoy, Florian Jungwirth, Tommy Thompson, Vako and Jackson Yueill; and forwards Danny Hoesen and Chris Wondolowski.

The following player is not under contract for the 2019 season: forward Dominic Oduro.

Danny Hoesen, Nick Lima, Florian Jungwirth, Shea Salinas, Andrew Tarbell, Tommy Thompson and Chris Wondolowski all received new contracts, had their 2019 options exercised or had their 2019 options automatically vest by reaching certain performance thresholds during the 2018 season.

Also in the blog from sfgate.com is the offer of a $250 season pass.  The only catch is that it is a digital ticket, straight from your smartphone that is available the day of the game.  The other passes have the price based on location, along with the option to print and/or transfer your game ticket and access to other perks.

Thoughts on Quakes Post-Season Roster Moves

And announced earlier this week…

The match will be the second of early year matches usually held on the west coast in late January/early February with the rosters to include mostly MLS players since the window is not part of the FIFA international calendar where players can be released to their national teams so most likely no Christian Pulisic and the other startlets including Josh Sargeant and Tim Weah.  However, Nick Lima may be included in the roster so stay tuned.  For any of the latest off-season roster news stay tuned here at 3pointsport.com for more.

Latest News

As reported JASA Redwood City defeated the Oakland Stompers 3-1 to take the division.  It’s down to second place between the Stompers and Real San Jose and on Tuesday night the Stompers took control of their own destiny as they defeated San Ramon Dynamos in a 8-1 blowout.  The match was a makeup date for November 10 in which the game had to be postponed due to the Camp Fire in Northern California.

The win puts the Stompers at 4 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses which is good for second place (14 points) in the division behind JASA Redwood City with a perfect 5 wins and 3 draws record (18 points).  As of press time JASA is assured of a playoff spot with more information to be announced.  The Stompers still have their US Open Cup Qualifier make up match to be played.

This week 11-26-18

There’s nothing happening in local soccer except for one league game with JASA Redwood City defeating the Oakland Stompers 3-1 at Red Morton Park.

Also, we missed Bluesnod at the game but he has his takes from his youtube channel.  Give it a follow for some takes on various matches around the Bay Area.

 

The Oakland Stompers host San Ramon in a makeup game from November 10 tomorrow (Tuesday November 26) at 9pm Raimondi Park.  With JASA Redwood City already locking up the top spot it all comes down to second place between the Stompers and most likely Real San Jose.  Win and in.

 

Also the Holidays are in full swing.   Here’s some early places to hang out–both events at Standard Deviant Bar in San Francisco.

FootySF is no longer part of the scene but they still give their support.  Why the people that be here started 3pointsport – to continue the tradition.

Check it out and it’s for a good cause–Saturday December 8 4:30pm.  I was there from 2013, and then from 2015 to last year.  I will be there as part of the gang.

 

And yes–another Standard Deviant event.  This time, SF City is hosting.  Friday December 14 at 7pm. Members get perks if they attend so join today for 2019 memberships.

Like/follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  Patreon is coming soon.  We’ll make some kind of announcement in the coming weeks.
