SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio FC closed out a busy week by playing to a scoreless draw with Monterey Bay F.C. at Toyota Field on Saturday night as the club continued their homestand.

The Story: San Antonio felt fatigue set in as they looked a step behind most of the match with neither side really getting any chances for nearly 90 minutes.

  • Goalkeeper Jordan Farr made two big saves, recording his sixth clean sheet of the season.
  • Since losing to Miami F.C., San Antonio has gone unbeaten in five straight matches.
  • In their three-game stretch, SAFC picked up seven out of a possible nine points.

“Three games, eight days, we collected seven points. I’m proud of the guys. Today they fought, they left everything they had out on the field,” SAFC Head Coach Alan Marcina said. “Same mentality, you could see there was definitely some heavy legs but we didn’t use that as an excuse.”

Seeing red: In the 79th minute, SAFC midfielder Jorge Hernandez was sent off after being shown a second yellow card for a hard foul but despite being down a man for the final 10+ minutes, San Antonio made a final push for a goal.

  • You know there was a comment made to me at the 79th minute when unfortunately we went down a man, and the guys were like ‘no, we want to get the win let’s keep pressing.’ That’s great to hear, from these warriors,” Marcina said. “With that sort of mentality, we wanted to go out with a win. Even being a man down, and I’m proud of them.”

Up Next: San Antonio FC is now 13-4-8 (47 points) on the season and will return to the pitch next Saturday to face Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC (13-5-8) at 8 p.m. at Toyota Field.
