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.

And the take from QuakesFan.com

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.

From the SF Glens Instagram. Their USL League Two (previously the PDL) schedule will be announced on Wednesday January 30, and that will include the home and home matches against cross town rival SF City–which we can best presume they will announce their season as well. (We await their schedule but 2019 memberships are available here.) A major note is that Fresno FC U23s is not on the list and that the Northern California group will include the San Francisco teams and the second year Santa Cruz Breakers. Stay tuned to 3pointsport for more USL League Two news.

Santa Cruz Breakers v SF City

SF City finished their 2018 PDL season on the road with an afternoon 2-0 win over the Santa Cruz Breakers at Cabrillo College in Aptos.  Gerardo Mendoza’s two goals were the difference maker in this game as City ended things on a positive note.

The win closed off in what was a season of highs and lows.  The top highlight was their US Open Cup win at Oakland against NPSL contenders CD Aguiluchos, and a road win at Boxer against their crosstown rivals the Glens.  Despite their slow start to the season on the road that resulted in 5 losses and 1 draw, City finished strong taking 2 wins over the Breakers and 1 against the Seahorses; only their loss at home against the Glens was the taint on that streak.   The team has very high expectations of contending once again in their division and an established Bay Area rivalry against the Glens and the Breakers.

SF City v Santa Cruz Breakers

In what was an otherwise scoreless game for about 70 minutes, SF City broke through with a goal from Jesse Stafford-Lacey, followed by two more from Armand Bagramyan, with the assist by Edu Caho Salinas, and then the insurance goal by Kei Komozawa to give SF City a 3-0 victory over the PDL debutants Santa Cruz Breakers.
