Quakes v Galaxy

For the first time since 2019, and delayed from June of this year due to a brush fire in the area, the Quakes and Galaxy finally played their game at Palo Alto. The 2021 return was at PayPal Park but Stanford Stadium has built a tradition since 2012 so this edition was the 10th year of play.

The one sour note was no Goonies magic as the Quakes fell short to the Galaxy 3-2 thanks to two goals from Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and one from Gaston Brugman.  Cristian Espinoza scored off the spot in the second half to start a comeback but a stoppage time by Nathan was not enough as the visitors get the upper hand and stay in contention for the MLS Cup playoffs.

Quakes v Bay Cities FC (US Open Cup)

Fresh off a major coaching change for the Quakes and a last minute win for Bay Cities FC in the last round of the tournament both clubs were looking for a momentum shift.  What was “won on paper” turned out to be a reality as the top flight club made the upstart visitors who became familiar with the stadium come crashing down to earth and ending their run after two games with a resounding 5 to 0 win for the Quakes.

The game was no contest thanks to goals from Jack Skahan, Paul Marie, Cade Cowell from the penalty spot, Niko Tsakiris, and Ousseni Bouda.
