Nothing to write home about. In the meantime please follow the 3pointsport Instagram for more soccer photos.
The Beautiful Blog has the Monday highlights. And thank you.
Also follow the Sportshop series on youtube for some fun videos. That genre is not our thing but Bluesnod does a better job covering the game from a film perspective. While this is more of a photo-orientated and journalist/blog/news site, Bluesnod covers the game with commentary and highlights. We’re behind the lens, and he’s in front of it. Enjoy!
We are back on the UPSL beat. JASA defeats Vacaville 6 to 1.
The skinny from The Beautiful Blog. The Quakes season is over and now have to wait until March for another attempt at MLS Cup. The latest buzz with the team is the rumors regarding coach Almeyda and Monterrey (Liga MX – Mexico). Under his current deal he is signed until 2022 with an out clause to coach the Mexican or Argentinian National Team.
In UPSL league play, JASA Redwood City rebounded from their US Open Cup defeat to Olympic Club with a convincing 6-1 win over Vacaville Elite.
Next up for JASA is a road trip to Stockton TLJ FC (Edison High School) on Saturday October 12 at 7:30pm , while Vacaville returns home (Fairfield High School) to host Real San Jose on Sunday October 13 with a 2pm kick-off.
Our weekend highlight is from San Jose where the Quakes lose 1-0 to the Sounders at the last minute.U
Update 10/1: Quakes Fans is back. There were some issues on their end, but in basic terms happy to have them returning to the fold. Check them out.
Jordan Morris scored a late stoppage time goal to give the Sounders a 1-0 over the Quakes. The match was the last regular season match of 2019.
Photos and set coming this week.
The Quakes will now finish their schedule at Portland next Sunday at 1pm. Seattle hosts Minnesota at the same time where playoff positioning is at stake with the winner claiming second place. San Jose just needs a win to get into the postseason, or a draw coupled with a Dallas loss. A Quakes loss to Portland will eliminate them from a chance to play for the MLS Cup.
This story has been all over social media and the web. We have a ton of material that is enough to form a set but we’ll let everything play out and post our takes when the hype goes down.
