SAN ANTONIO — An out-of-character performance for San Antonio FC saw them suffer their first home loss in over a year, falling 0-1 to The Miami FC at Toyota Field on Saturday night.

The Story: A frustrated San Antonio squad looked a step slow all night long, giving up a goal in the seventh minute to Miami’s Ryan Telfer.

  • The loss was San Antonio’s first at home since April 2, 2022, snapping a 24-match league home unbeaten streak.
  • Miami captain Paco Craig was shown a second yellow in the 10th minute and was sent off, making the away squad down a man for the rest of the match.
  • “Incredibly disappointed- as we should be. Inexcusable performance tonight,” San Antonio FC Head Coach Alen Marcina said.

Why it matters: The top three teams in the Western Conference all lost on Saturday night, which saw San Antonio miss out on a golden opportunity to move up in the standings.

  • First-place Sacramento lost 3-0 to New Mexico and third-place El Paso fell to Oakland 3-1, making the race to get the top spot tighter in the second half of the USL Championship season.
  • “I think it’s probably one of our more weaker performances. I think by no means this is SAFC’s way, by no means and you know obviously what’s at stake,” SAFC Defender Shannon Gomez said.

Up next: San Antonio FC is now 9-4-7 (34 points) on the season and will return to the pitch next Saturday to face the Hartford Athletic 4-9-8 at 8 p.m. from Toyota Field.
