The result did not go their way as the college scored 3 unanswered goals to give them a 3-1 win. The match was merely to try out some players who could make the roster at the start of their USL League 2 (formerly PDL) campaign beginning May 3.

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.
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.
