Real San Jose failed to provide the big performance that was required to stay alive in the Wild West playoff race and fell 4-0 to San Leandro United on November 16 at PAL Stadium. It was a disappointing loss, to say the least. RSJ struggled all season to mount a consistent attack and it was even worse than normal on this night. On the other end, San Leandro put their chances away and moved into playoff position.
Real San Jose had an important road result insight but ultimately fell 2-0 to Pajaro Vally on November 10. RSJ was short-handed as a few key players were unavailable. Defensive star Alex Kaster missed his first minutes of the season with an injury and missing Juan Torres and Eddie Guerro forced other lineup adjustments. Still, RSJ stayed in the match until the final five minutes when both PVU goals were scored. Cesar Burrell, Danny Corrall, Miles Monroe, and goalkeeper Jonathan Arellano all had outstanding performances.
Real San Jose was one minute away from earning three crucial points in the Wild West Division standing but failed to hold on as the Oakland Stompers scored to force a tied match on November 2nd at Raimondi Park in Oakland. A win would have pulled San Jose to within three points of the division lead. It was an exciting match with both teams creating and defending numerous goal-scoring chances. Rafa Martinez scored for San Jose in the 20th minute. Newly signed Emeka Mgbeahuru played upfront with Denis Sorto and Diego Madrigal on the front line.
