USOC Preliminary Round: San Fran City FC vs. Cal FC

USOC Preliminary Round: San Fran City FC vs. Cal FC
On Saturday April 25th, San Francisco City FC (US Club Soccer – NorCal Premier Soccer League) hosted Cal FC (Simi Valley Soccer League – USASA Region IV) in the preliminary round of the 2015 Lamar Hunt Open Cup.   The match was held at Kezar Stadium in front of over 1,500 fans.   The match was a heated contest, but Cal FC was able to walk away the victor after capitalizing on two penalties – the dagger coming in the 88’ due to an SF City FC handball in the box.   Cal FC will now move on to the next round of the Open Cup.  Cal FC does have a rather storied history in the USOC after defeating MLS’ Portland Timbers.  Cal FC was coached by former United States national player and current soccer pundit Eric Wynalda at that time.

Non League America’s contributor Michael Thurnauer, was at this match armed with a camera and was able to capture some impressive shots.
