On a very pleasant evening at home, SAFC were unlucky versus Orange County SC. Despite being clever on the counter and confident on the ball during the attack, SAFC could not finish the chances they earned. The first half went well for the hosts as they withstood the offensive efforts OCSC unleashed. The mood was still positive heading into the break.
Shortly after the second half began, Orange County opened the scoring from a free kick. Calls from the crowd demanded that Diego Restrepo be relieved of his duty for the evening as the game grew later. Cesar Elizondo finally made his club debut for SAFC after recovering from an injury. His impressive performance in the second half did provide an inspiring spark to the attack and he proved to me that he should be getting the start in the midfield moving forward.
