The info and news are always appreciated and the main focus here is the photo highlights but in the spirit of journalism we like to highlight articles from the best and if they allow us to share, it’s for the better–and to give them the buzz.  So, enjoy.

Santa Cruz Breakers v SF City revisited

A bit of a catch up – the USL League Two (formerly PDL) season begins this week so something from last season and leading up to the season opener on Friday May 3 and the home opener on Sunday May 5.

For now, the topic is the road finale against Santa Cruz.  The season ended last year with them, and starts with them to begin 2019.  So, picking up where things were left off.

Right now, there isn’t a set from the SF City Facebook page so just going to proceed with the other highlights.  The other matches are skipped for now, so the show must go on.

Bay Area Soccer: Hoesen’s brace lead Quakes over SKC, Oakland Stompers stomped at home

FEATURE: Danny Hoesen Named to MLS Team of the Week | Week 9 (sjearthquakes.com) – should have been player of the week, but this is well earned so congratulations Danny Dutch.

Quakes v Sporting Kansas City

Danny Hoesen’s early goals in the 6th and 12th minutes were the catalyst in the Quakes match against Sporting Kansas City.   Additional goals from Shea Salinas to open the second half, followed by a goal from Magnus Erikkson in the 61st minute was enough to win 4-1 over Sporting Kansas City. Felipe Gutiérrez scored a penalty kick in the 66th minute was the only blemish in the game.

The win was the second this season for San Jose and equals the number of home victories from last year.
