It was another tough weekend for SF City FC, who lost their second consecutive match at Kezar Stadium on Sunday, June 24th. It was a festive day, as SF City FC hosted Fresno FC’s U23 squad for the annual pride celebration match. The Iron and Gold donned commemorative kits featuring horizontal rainbow stripes for the occasion, but the final score put a damper on the festivities. At the final whistle, the home side lost by a scoreline of San Francisco City FC 1 – Fresno FC 3.
Fresno FC started off their scoring in the first half with their initial strike coming off a beautiful curling set piece. At the half, Fresno led 1-nil. Fresno carried a 3-nil lead late into the game, when the SF City offense began to wake up. The Iron and Gold earned a penalty in the 75th minute, but were unable to convert from the spot. Just minutes later, second-half substitute, Ashish Chatta, converted a beautiful free kick for the lone SF City consolation goal of the day. SF City hosts 3 consecutive games at Kezar Stadium to cap off their 2018 home stand, and will be looking to turn things around and finish on a high note.
This Sunday a matinee at Kezar will see San Francisco City FC welcome Fresno FC. Both teams are known for great fan support, so the atmosphere at the stadium should be a great one. San Francisco was handed their first loss in the month of June by Orange County last weekend, and will be keen to return to their winning ways. City claimed victory in a 2-1 nail-biter in the two clubs’ last meeting in San Francisco.
SF City will be sporting special uniforms honoring Pride Weekend, and, in the week following the match, these game-worn jerseys will be auctioned off to the public on eBay. The proceeds for this auction will be donated to the AIDS Legal Referral Panel. ALRP exists to help people in the Bay Area with HIV/AIDS maintain or improve their health by resolving their legal issues through free and low-cost legal services.
