Let’s start this week in the West where the conference is still CD Aguiluchos and everyone else. But everyone else had an interesting week. CD knocked off Sonoma County 5-3 and East Bay Stompers FC beat Sacramento 2-1 on a late go-ahead goal. But the moment most may recall will be EBFC keeper’s Marcus Rojas’ play in the box- the bad and the good to preserve the tie in the 83rd minute
After the loss, the Gold have a one-point lead on Sonoma County, 2 on EBFC, and 6 on Napa Valley 1839 (9-8-7-3). This week, Stompers host CD Aguiluchos and Sonoma County hosts Napa Valley.
In the Northwest, everyone is finally underway. PDX FC won their second in a row, 2-1 over Pierce County. OSA FC split their weekend with a win over FCM Portland and a draw Spokane SC Shadow. And speaking of Shadow, they drew Kitsap Soccer 1-1 in Bremerton. Kitsap has the match below:
