This Week 5-6-19

We were here, here, here, and there. The total slate of games covered were four–starting with a Friday road trip to Santa Cruz to see SF City kick off their season, followed by an NPSL match between El Farolito and Sonoma County (we were there for the second half) and the Quakes playing MLS debutants FC Cincinnati on Saturday.  The Sunday headliner was the SF derby at Kezar.

We’ll let our buddies Mike and Mike at The Beautiful Blog tell the story.

El Farolito v Sonoma County Sol

We were there for the second half of the match.  The match was scoreless at the half but El Farolito took the lead with a scramble in the box that was lobbed in for the goal in the early part of the second half.  The end result was a 1-1 draw.

Farolito will travel across the Bay Bridge to play the East Bay Stompers in Oakland next Saturday May 11 7:30 start.  Sonoma County will take a week off before resuming play on May 18 hosting San Ramon.

SF City v SF Glens

In a rivalry game that was the home opener for SF City, and the season opener for the Glens the two teams picked off where they left off last year at Kezar.  While the Glens got on the board early, it was City that drew even at 1-1 only to see the visitors take the lead 2-1.  However, the result was different this time with the home team winning 3-2.

City will hit the road with a game at San Diego on Saturday May 11 5pm kickoff.  The Glens will do so likewise with two Southern California matches against the Golden State Force on Friday May 10 at 7pm and at the Orange County 2 on Sunday May 12 at 2pm before opening up their home schedule on Friday May 17 at 6pm against the Santa Cruz Breakers.

Quakes v FC Cincinnati

In a match that was marred by fouls, cautions, and ejections the Quakes squeaked by with a win thanks to a Nick Lima goal in the 22nd minute.  That match was enough to get a 1-0 win, and their third home victory of the season.

A total of 28 fouls (15 from the Quakes and 13 from Cincinnati) plus 6 yellow cards (3 from each side), and the red card ejection of Cristian Espinoza in the 51st minute thanks to his yellow in the 15th was the focal point of the match.  Still, the team was able to grind out the results in a major improvement from the season before.

The Quakes will hit the road to Foxboro, Massachusetts to play New England in their only meeting on Saturday May 11 at 4:30pm.  Cincinnati will return home to host Montreal on the same day, 10 am PDT start tine.

Santa Cruz Breakers v SF City

In a match to kick off the national USL League Two Schedule, SF City picked off where they left off last year with a road trip to Santa Cruz.  With the game held under the Friday Night Lights they scored a quick goal in the 3rd minute followed by another in the 20th to give a 2-0 halftime lead.  The Breakers scored a goal in the 75th minute but it was the only one they would have for the night.  Thanks to an insurance goal in the 78th minute SF City gets the 3-1 victory.
