SUNDAY, October 18: City traveled to Hayward to face SF Stompers in a final NorCal premier match before this Sunday’s U.S. Open Cup match vs. El Farolito. After falling behind early after the Stompers intercepted a misplayed back pass, City quickly equalized on a goal from right back Bobby Edwards. City then took the lead on two beautiful finishes from Johannes Demarzi to take a 3-1 lead into the half.
The Stompers came out with renewed energy in the 2nd half, scoring in the 50th minute and cutting City’s lead to one. It didn’t take long for City to expand the lead, however, with defender Marc Tonkel finding David Taylor streaking up the field for City’s fourth goal.
