Olympic Club continued their qualifying run with a 4-2 win over the Oakland Stompers at the Beach Chalet in San Francisco. The match was their second straight tournament win for the SFSFL outfit over a UPSL club having defeated JASA Redwood City last month on the road.
Next up for JASA is a road trip to Stockton TLJ FC (Edison High School) on Saturday October 12 at 7:30pm , while Vacaville returns home (Fairfield High School) to host Real San Jose on Sunday October 13 with a 2pm kick-off.
In Saturday’s playoff game host AFC Hearts took a 2-0 lead, only to have visiting JASA come back to draw even. The game was tied after 90 minutes with the match immediately advancing to penalty kicks. JASA ended up winning that round 4-3.
In a battle between the defending Fall champions and the current top team in the league, something needed to give. In a bit of an upset, JASA scored 3 goals to give them a win and handing the visitors their first defeat of the season.
JASA Redwood City now hit the road for their remaining schedule with a road game June 1 at Nevada Coyotes 4pm start time, and return to the Bay Area with a trip to San Francisco to play AFC Hearts on June 8–4pm kickoff. Contra Costa FC return home to play their remaining schedule hosting Pajaro Valley June 1 and Redding Royals a week later at Northgate High School Walnut Creek 5pm kickoff for both games.
Both teams will have a break for a few weeks, with JASA resuming play on May 11 with a road trip to Watsonville to play Pajaro Valley, while San Leandro gets an extra week of rest until they host Redding Royals on May 18 at Burrell Field, 7:30 start time.
