Orange County SC Last Match Summary (v LA Galaxy II):
Orange County fell to a 1-0 loss to LA Galaxy II in the 405 derby on Wednesday night despite a fairly strong offensive performance. The goal came in the 57th minute as Ryo Fujii beat the defense and placed a shot perfectly to open the scoring.
Despite dominating the match OCSC just could not really break down the Los Dos defense with Jon Kempin starring in goal. Things got really bad for OCSC in the 85th minute after LA Galaxy II conceded a penalty, a golden opportunity for OCSC. The penalty taken by Roy Meeus was too easy for Kempin to save to his right, summing up the night for OCSC.
Statistical Note: San Antonio FC will hit their 500th shot in this match, as they currently sit at 497 shots. That is made up of 266 shots on target, 191 shots off target, and 40 blocked shots.
Key to the Match: Finishing, had OCSC have had better finishing they would have easily defeated Los Dos midweek, but they made it a bit too easy for the keeper. SAFC has also been guilty of poor finishing at times this season but will be hoping that win in Arizona can boost confidence.
