For the first time in San Antonio FC history the club has won back to back matches as they managed a 3-2 win over Orange County FC at Toyota Field on Thursday night. Fejiro Okiomah was the main man for San Antonio FC as he laid off two assists in a strong man of the match performance.
San Antonio FC dominated the opening half of the match as they controlled almost all the possession in the first 45. But despite that it took some time for San Antonio FC to break through, as they continued their tendency to pass the ball around when they could have shot.
In the 17th minute San Antonio FC finally broke through, after some nice Francois footwork as he beat three defenders. That forced the keeper to come, but Francois squared for Michael Reed who was left with a simple finish to open the scoring.
Despite a strong performance from San Antonio FC, the Blues were back on level terms right before the half. Roy Meeus found space outside the box and hit a powerful shot, which Josh Ford could not get to.
Orange County Blues started the second half well and in the fifth minute of the second half they had the lead. Didier Crettenand received a clearance, and launched a powerful shot that got past Ford with the aid of a deflection.
That saw San Antonio FC forced to respond and they again started to take control of the match again, and in the 73rd minute they had an equalizer. Again it was Francois who left his defenders on the ground, and squared for Franck Tayou who was able to simply tap it over the line.
With the momentum well and truly with them, San Antonio FC kept on pushing for another goal to win the match. It didn’t take long to find that goal as Carlos Alvarez sent the pall wide for a rushing Milton Palacios to beat the offside trap and then power it past the keeper to give San Antonio a 3-2 win, and have their first winning streak in club history.
