After just one match, ASC San Diego are off to a good start, tying FC Arizona 3-3. This match was electric till the very end, with ASC forward Douglas Andrade scoring a stoppage time goal to give his side one point.

ASC will be looking to get their first home win for their fans. They will be battling against a Riverside squad that has had more time on the pitch. San Diego’s backline will have to be organized to fend off Riverside’s quick attacking style.
Riverside Coras 0-1-1
Riverside is starting to build that chemistry and they are ready for their first victory of the season.
“We are a new team getting to know each other but moving forward we have the talent to compete for the league. I see promise in my guys, I see positive things and I see that hunger.” – Head coach Gabriel Esqueda
Riverside will be quick in transition, looking to attack through the wings and create multiple chances in a row. Due to their high physicallity and pressing ability, Riverside thrives in the opponents attacking third. Against Temecula the press forced a turnover that led to goal, and almost did the same against FC Golden State.
