Quakes v Rapids

A Wondo strike that was later credited as an own goal got the Quakes off to a quick lead in the 2nd minute, with Vako extending the lead later in the 34th minute.   Shea Salinas later put the dagger on the game in the 83th minute to give the Quakes another victory.  A goal from Colorado’s Diego Rubio in the closing minutes of the game was the only blemish in a possible clean sheet.

This Week 7-22-19

We were back at Levi’s Stadium for the International Champions Cup.  We had been there from 2015 to 2017 as part of FootySF but could not get in last year so was there in the stands.  We’re happy to be back this time under this site and for that we’re thankful.  We will be posting more in the coming days and weeks.  Right now, the notebook (photo album) is on the 3pointsport Facebook page.

Here is the summary from last weekend and a compendium of the event from the FootySF days.

And the Quakes continue their winning ways against Vancouver.  Do not be surprised if this team hosts a playoff game–as of now the team is in fifth in the Western Conference (Conference winner gets a first round bye, second to fourth host a playoff game while fifth to seventh are on the road).  Chris Wondolowski also increased his career goal scoring total to 153.

 

Benfica v Chivas

Raul de Tomas scored early in the 4th minute, while Rafa and Haris Seferovic added two more in the 70th and 73th minutes respectively as Benfica (Lisbon, Portugal) defeated Chivas de Guadalajara 3 to 0.

Chivas now travel to Arlington, Texas as they face Atletico de Madrid on July 23.  Benfica head to the New York area to face Fiorentina on July 24. (Edit: Chivas opens Liga MX play against Santos Laguna on July 21 so their ICC roster was mostly from the reserves.)
