In a match that was dominated by conservative play and several chances, it was JASA Redwood City that came out on top thanks to a second half goal of a set play. The end result was a 1-0 victory over Real San Jose in the 101 derby.
Real San Jose finishes in last place in the Wild West Red with 7 points (1 W, 4 D, 5 L). JASA remains in 2nd place in the Wild West Red with 15 points (3 W, 6 D, 0 L)–4 behind division winner Pajaro Valley, and still has a makeup game at Contra Costa to be announced. That match will be played for postseason ranking.
The 2019 Spring season kicks off Saturday with games in San Francisco and San Leandro.

Also, Jimmy Conrad was introduced as the SF Glens Technical Director/Associate Head Coach. It looks like that he will be coaching not only the PDL (USL: League Two) outfit as an assistant but also will be overseeing the various teams under the team’s umbrella ranging from futsal to the youth groups. Conrad’s playing resume includes stints with the San Jose Earthquakes/Clash, Kansas City Wizards (Sporting Kansas City), and in college with UCLA. He also played in the 2006 World Cup for the USA.
