SF City 5-Redwood City 0: City dominates at Redwood City and looks to home opener

SF City started off the 2015 NorCal Premier League season with a convincing 5-0 defeat of Redwood City Juventus SC.

City started the scoring midway through the first half with back to back goals from winger Johannes Demarzi giving San Francisco a 2-0 lead. City wasn’t done though, with midfielder Ben Flatley unleashing a rocket from 22 yards to give City a 3-0 lead going into the half.

In the 2nd half, SF City showed spells of patient possession and continued with lethal attacks and unwavering pressure on the Redwood City back line. Newcomer George Plakorus, who recently completed his senior season at Cal-State Monterey Bay, was dangerous throughout the match on the left wing, consistently testing Juventus defenders and creating chances. Plakorus linked up with former Stanford midfielder Eric Anderson to open City’s second half scoring and make the lead 4-0.

A total team performance was capped by a beautiful Tyson Crim goal. Crim controlled a long pass from midfielder Jack Momeyer in the 77th minute with a composed touch and hammered a volley home to make it 5-0.
