After a tough 2-1 injury-time loss on Saturday, Real San Jose takes the field this Wednesday night, May 16 for a 7:45 pm kick off vs JASA from Redwood City.

RSJ is scrambling to put a roster together because of injuries inflicted on them by Western Nevada.

Mike Tomsic, and Hoang Pham could not finish the match after suffering brutal hits that were common from the visitors. There is a chance both of them will be ready for Wednesday night. Goalkeeper Jonathan Arellano took a kick to his right shoulder that left him on the ground for a number of minutes. He was able to continue but the injury appears to be significant as he could not raise his arm after it cooled down after the match. The club will learn more after a doctor's consultation.

"We are scrambling to find another keeper for Wednesday and possibly longer," said RSJ General Manager Nick Arellano. "It is very difficult to find a qualified backup keeper in San Jose but, now thanks to the early season, rain outs we have to find one in two days."

Real San Jose twice came back from being a goal down to earn a 2-2 draw at Chico Rangers on May 5, 2018. The result keeps RSJ unbeaten through five games to start the 2018 UPSL season.

Chico came out strong and scored through a corner kick just two minutes into the match. It seemed as if the RSJ defenders stopped play as a header spun off the top of the bar and Chico player crossed the ball in for a wide-open shooter.

"The ball went out to play and we all stopped. Their guy still played it and they scored. We complained but the referee said we should play through the whistle, I don't understand how the AR missed it," said RSJ goalkeeper Jonathan Arellano.

Chico continue to apply pressure as San Jose were still trying to find their form. After about 20 minutes, they did.

RSJ started creating some nice chances for themselves and narrowly missing. Finally, Capt. Angel Heredia went coast-to-coast combining passes with goalkeeper Arellano, Facundo Benitez and Luis Avalos. At the end of the play it was some nifty combination passing between Heredia and Avalos that led to the tying goal. Avalos provided Borja Moya with the defense splitting pass and Borja beat the keeper for his third goal of the season. The referee blew for halftime just after the following kickoff.

Chico began the second half as they did the first and kept RSJ pinned back looking for counterattacks. Chico seem to get the break they were looking for when defender Hoang Pham was called for tripping in the penalty box. However, the Chico penalty taker shot the ball over the goal.

The home team did get the break they were looking for in the 69th minute as they took the lead once again. This time they took full advantage of attacking the RSJ right side crossed to a wide-open striker who had no problem finding the net.

RSJ once again were behind and pushing forward. Finally, in 82nd minute, another series of touches found in attacking player wide-open. Omar Sanchez played the ball from the midfield line toward Pham who "dummied" the ball for Mike Tomsic. Tomsic combined with Moya and found himself which is the goalkeeper to beat. And he did sliding the ball just inside the back post.

Both sides pushed hard for the game-winner but in the end the match finished in a well played draw.

Real San Jose Soccer Club

Real San Jose continued their winning ways in 2018 with a 3-0 victory over the Redding Royals at PAL Stadium on April 28. This was the third home win for RSJ this season.

Mike Tomsic got Real San Jose on the scoreboard just after the 20 minute mark when his low skipping shot found its way through the Redding goalkeeper and into the net. Then, just a couple minutes later, Borja Moya added a second goal. This time it came off a twenty-yard curving free kick that found its mark.

The match started with both sides searching for the early goal. It was Redding that produced the most dangerous of the chances as RSJ goalkeeper Jonathan Arellano was forced to make a few good saves. The game took a major shift in RSJ's direction once Tomsic shot slithered into the net.

The second half turned out to be action-packed with Redding pushing forward and RSJ running into gaps in the Royals defense. Defensively, center defenders Omar Sanchez and newcomer Mo Elshafie kept everything under control. RSJ finally put the match away with less than 10 minutes remaining when Isau Navarro drove a 25 yard shot into the Redding net. The quality of the goal seemed to signify the overall performance from San Jose as they were full value for the 3-0 win.

Real San Jose hits the road next week as they take their unbeaten record to Chico. The next home match is May 12 when Western Nevada comes to PAL stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:45 PM.
