SF City held their last game of the season under the foggy lights of Kezar. Fresh from a current 2 game winning streak they were unable to finish on a high note, as the visiting Orange County team got off to a quick 3 first half goal lead. They never looked back as the hometown team tried to come back with a second half goal but it was all for naught as the OCSC U23s defeated SF City 3-1.
SF City finishes their 2019 campaign with 4 wins, 7 losses, and 3 draws. Orange County currently has 4 wins, 5 losses, and 4 draws and have one more game in San Francisco at Boxer against the Glens on Saturday July 13 6pm kickoff.
In a match that was headed towards a draw, late game substitute Danny Hoesen scored a goal 3 minutes into the second half of stoppage time to seal a 1-0 for the Quakes over Real Salt Lake. The game continued an 8 game home unbeaten streak (7-0-1).
And a big thank you to the Beautiful Blog. That is all. However, we’ll defer to the Big Three of Doug, Mike, and Mike over ther since they do a much better job. We’re just here to tell the story from a personal viewpoint, and having fun showcasing things win, lose, or draw.
The hotly contested return leg did not disappoint as both teams played for bragging rights. However, it was the team from Kezar that had the upper hand as City fought to earn a 5-3 victory over the host Glens. City had the upper hand scoring 3 goals in the first half., and adding one more at the start of the second half. However, the match became more fiercely contested as the Glens came back to score two goals to cut the deficit to 4-2. The game was put out of reach with an insurance goal at the 85th minute to get a 5-2 lead, though a late penalty kick goal by the Glens closed the game at 5-3 but too little too late as City sweeps the series.
