Real San Jose midfield star Angel Heredia shared his thoughts about RSJ’s 2-0 win over Oakland Pamperos on October 7.
“Felt good to finally get our first win of the season. I think we pick these points up at a good time as we gain momentum heading into the last half of the season. We are looking to win more games and climb to the top on the standings.”
“I think the team played well. We responded really well from our last game, and we executed our game plan well paying off with a win. Our point of emphasis during the week of training was in our defending, so I think the team took a lot of pride in getting a shutout.”
Come to watch Angel and his teammates earn a win against Dynamos FC at PAL Stadium this Saturday at 7:30 pm.
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.
