Saturday’s match has been postponed due to the poor air quality caused by the terrible Santa Rosa fires.

“It is the prudent decision. All the local high schools shut down their PE and sports programs for the week so I decided to follow their lead. These are usual circumstances so it is best to err on the side of safety,” said RSJ manager Nick Arellano.

All other UPSL games in the Bay Area have been postponed. The only Wild West conference game to be played this weekend are Western Nevada at Azteca FC in Sacramento.

“Every one is concerned for our UPSL partners Victory FC and their community as they deal with these terrible fires,” said Arellano.


Real San Jose played a solid 90 minutes in defeating Oakland Pamperos by the score of 2-0 on October 7 at Raimondi Park in Oakland. Lorenzo Vasquez did all the scoring in the first 30 minutes of the first half.

The match marked the return of striker Fernando Lares and Gio Troini to the the RSJ roster. Both players put in a solid night’s work. RSJ featured a reworked back four with Troini, Alejandro Gonzalez, and newly signed Raymundo Mora making their first appearances in the 2017 back line.

“It was good to see a total team effort. Our defense and midfield worked extremely well shutting down our opponent and the forwards pressed hard and were rewarded with two goals,” said RSJ coach Frank Quintero.


Real San Jose is looking to get in the win column by traveling to play Oakland Pamperos this Saturday at Raimondi Park Stadium, kickoff 7:00pm.

“We need to set things right by getting three points from this match. Pamperos is a tough team to play especially at their home,” said Manager Nick Arellano.

RSJ is rebounding from a slow start to the UPSL fall season which has seen them without a win after two games. Lack of consistent play is a reason for concern. In the first match of the season RSJ went on the road and drew 0-0 with Dynamos FC. In that match it was the attack that failed. Then last Saturday, it was the defensive side that failed.

RSJ returns home to play JASA on October 14 at 7:30pm. Hopefully, they will bring three more points with them.
