Real San Jose Soccer ClubIn a display of resilience and tactical prowess, Real San Jose (RSJ) overcame the elements and opposition alike in an emphatic 2-0 victory over Yemen United this past weekend. Despite the relentless downpour at MLK Park in Richmond on February 17, 2024, RSJ showcased their tenacity and championship caliber.

As the final whistle echoed, it became clear that this was more than just a win; it was a statement piece that solidified RSJ's position as a dominant force in the league.

Last Match Highlights: Raining Goals at MLK Park

The pivotal moment came in the 62nd minute when Lluis Dolade received a pass from Victor Salgado then pierced through the weather and the defense to put RSJ ahead. His precision strike was not just a game-changer but potentially a season-definer for the San Jose squad.

With the clock winding down, RSJ continued to assert their dominance. The 83rd-minute saw a masterclass in teamwork and execution: Dolade turned provider, sliding a perfect ball to Victor Salguero. What followed was a moment of sheer brilliance as Salguero's assist found Cristian Cruz, who made no mistake from 8 yards out, powering the ball home to seal the deal.

Unbeaten Streak Marches On

The triumph at MLK Park stretches Real San Jose's awe-inspiring unbeaten streak to 23 league matches—a testament to their consistency and indomitable spirit. As the regular season curtain closes, this run of form has certainly laid the groundwork for playoff success.

Preparing for the NSL Pacific Playoffs

Having finished the season impressively in 2nd place, RSJ head into the NSL Pacific playoffs with a tactical advantage—a first-round bye that gives them additional time to refine strategies and nurse any lingering injuries back to optimal playing condition.

The preparations are rooted not just in maintaining fitness and form but also in furthering the cohesion and tactical understanding that have been the cornerstone of RSJ's season. Dave Gold is undoubtedly analyzing potential opponents while also galvanizing the squad with the psychological fortitude needed for knockout football.

As RSJ sets their gaze on the coveted championship trophy, their dual strengths—strategic depth on the field and a unified team ethos—will be pivotal in navigating the playoff battles ahead.

An Anticipated Return

The 2024 NSL Pacific season can't come soon enough for RSJ supporters eager to witness if RSJ can extend their remarkable streak. Coming off a standout performance and armed with playoff momentum, there is every reason to believe that Real San Jose will be a formidable contender when the new season kicks off this April.
