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.

It looks like Quakes defender Nick Lima will have his chance to earn his first cap either against Panama or Costa Rica. All of the players on Gregg Berhalter’s team are MLS based players and are hoping to earn a further look as the US team begins their Gold Cup run this year, and eventually their World Cup qualifying run in 2022.
The Quakes will begin their pre-season camp in Cancun, Mexico. One game is slated to be played there before returning to the US for a 3 game warmup at Reno on February 9, a closed door match against LAFC on February 16, and the traditional pre-season warmup on February 23 against the Seattle Sounders.
