SF City traveled to Provo, Utah to play BYU Cougars over 2 matches during the Memorial Day weekend and came back with 4 points, which has catapulted the club to the top of league standings in the Central Pacific Division.
In the first match played this past Thursday, SF City FC and BYU played to a scoreless tie. Both clubs had their fair set of chances, but neither could break through. Saturday’s match saw SF City win 3-2 in a thrilling match with BYU start the scoring midway through the first half. SF City answered with 2 first half goals as Merlin Baus and Bobby Edwards notched goals and led 2-1 at the break. Baus scored another goal midway through the second half from the penalty spot, putting the game away for the visitors. BYU made a last ditch effort and scored right at the 90th minute mark, but SF City walked away with all 3 points.
The 4 point haul over Memorial Day weekend comes on the heels of SF City’s home opener this Saturday, June 4th, live at Kezar Stadium with a 3pm kickoff. SF City plays the Las Vegas Mobsters for the first time this season. Their first meeting of the season was cancelled due to thunderstorms in the Las Vegas area, but will be replayed at a later date.
Will you be at Kezar!?!
