San Antonio FC Secures Home Playoff Match With Draw In Oakland

The result puts San Antonio in a tie in points with Sacramento for first place in the Western Conference.

HAYWARD, Calif. — San Antonio FC secured a home playoff match after rallying from a two-goal deficit to earn a point in a 2-2 draw with the Oakland Roots on Saturday night.

The Story: San Antonio scored two second-half goals, including one in the 90th minute to secure a point to keep in a tight race for first place in the Western Conference.

  • After giving up two goals in the first nine minutes, San Antonio responded with two goals in the second half.
  • Santiago Patiño opened the scoring in the 56th minute to cut the deficit to 1-2, scoring his sixth goal of the season to make it four straight matches with a goal.
  • Tani Oluwaseyi found the back of the net in second-half stoppage time, putting home his 16th of the season, the fourth-most in the league, and extending a club single-season record.

“I’m proud of the guys’ resilience, it’s not easy to go down two goals within the first 10 minutes of play, so this team has shown me that they never give up, they fight to the very end, so for that, I’m very very proud,” SAFC Head Coach Alen Marcina said.

Fight for first: The result puts San Antonio in a tie in points with Sacramento for first place in the Western Conference with two matches remaining in the regular season.

  • ” I thought we showed a lot of what it takes to come back,” SAFC forward Justin Dhillon said. “Obviously, I think the locker room’s a bit disappointed with the draw, but at the end of the day we take the point and we were happy that we were able to come back.”

Up next: San Antonio FC is now 14-5-13 (55 points) on the season and will return to the pitch next Saturday night to face Orange County SC at 9 p.m. for their final road match of the regular season.
