ACTION CONTINUES IN THE WEST REGION

It was yet another great weekend of NPSL action as the West Region continued regular season play.  

On Friday night the Santa Clarita Storm defeated Del Rey City 2-0.  

FC Force came away with a 3-2 winner over FC Hasental on Saturday.  Sacramento Gold also landed a big win on Saturday night, shutting out Real San Jose 7-0.  Gold forward Jason Jones scored a team record-tying five goals in the win, moving the Gold to a tie with the San Francisco Stompers for first place in the Golden Gate Conference.

The Stompers defeated the Sonoma County Sol 3-1. 

The San Diego Flash Soccer Club came from two goals down in the last 17 minutes to get a 3-3 draw versus Temecula FC at Temecula on Sunday. Flash goals came from Justin Picou, Sergio Valle-Ortiz, and  Brandon Zuniga.

San Diego played a man down for almost 30 minutes after Nelson Pizarro got his second yellow card and was dismissed from the match in the 68th minute. 

Action also continued in the Northwest with all four teams in action over the weekend.  

Spartans FC beat Inter United 4-0 in Tukwila on Saturday evening.  Seattle Sporting FC picked up where they left off last week as they knocked off Hood River club Gorge FC 5-3 on Sunday afternoon at Pop Keeney Stadium in Bothell, WA.

What do you enjoy most about playing in NPSL: The training at RVA FC was very high level for a typical NPSL team. Every day you would have to come with the right focus, sharpness and energy or you would not be able to keep up. I loved it because it not only helped me become a better player, but also the team grew a lot in that environment.

 

Toughest Player you have ever played against: Perry Kitchen when he was at Akron 

 

Favorite Moment from Youth Soccer playing days: Playing in France with the Region 1 ODP team when I was 15. 

 

If you could invite three players to play a 2 v 2 game with you, who would they be and why: Ibrahimovic, Iniesta, Messi with Ronaldo as an alternate because I feel like they are definitely in the top 5 most technical players in the world. Who wouldn’t want to play 2 v 2 with them?
