Swope Park Rangers last match report (v San Antonio FC): view full report here.

Statistical Note: Should San Antonio FC not lose they will equal the best start in modern American Soccer history, LA Galaxy won 12 straight (two were draws won on penalties under the rules of the league) to open the 1996 season. Should they only draw LA Galaxy would keep the record points total alone, for at least another week, a win will level that mark as well. LA Galaxy went on to lose their next five matches in a row.

Key to the Match: Defense, it’s what has held San Antonio FC so well through the first 11 matches of the season and it’s what got them the win last week. They’ll need to resist Swope Park’s attack more than they did last week as now Swope Park have had a first hand view of San Antonio just one week ago.

Prediction: San Antonio FC 1 Swope Park Rangers 0
