Everything You Need to Know Before Orange County SC Heads to the Alamo City to Face SAFC

April 12, 2024 - United Soccer League Championship (USL)
Orange County SC News Release


Kickoff: Saturday, April 13 (5:30 PM PST)

Where: Toyota Field (San Antonio, TX)

How to Watch: ESPN+, CBS KCAL Channel 9, The Harp Inn in Costa Mesa with The County Line Coalition

Orange County SC finishes their road trip in the Lone Star State when they travel to Toyota Field in San Antonio, TX to face San Antonio FC on Saturday, April 13. It is a tale of two streaks, as SAFC look to defend their 11 match unbeaten streak at home, while the Black and Orange carry a five match road unbeaten streak into Saturday's contest. Something's gotta give...

TEXAS TWO STEP

San Antonio FC enter Saturday in 5th place in the Western Conference. They were knocked from the undefeated ranks their last time out, when they suffered a 1-0 to the Las Vegas Lights at Cashman Field. However, back home in Texas, Toyota Field has been a fortress for the Black and Silver over the past few years. Just how well have SAFC fared at home? They've lost just two matches at Toyota Field in their last 37 regular season matches played at home (20-15-2). In their three home matches so far this year, they have scored at least two goals and have gone undefeated in that stretch (2-1-0). There's a new goalkeeper protecting the posts for SAFC after the departure of Jordan Farr in the offseason, when San Antonio brought goalkeeper Pablo Sisniega into the fold from Crown Legacy FC of MLS Next Pro. Former USMNT forward Juan Agudelo has two goal contributions this year and former LA Galaxy II midfielder Jorge Hernandez leads the team in assists (3) and chances created (17).

2024 Regular Season Record: 2-2-1 (5th in USL-C Western Conference)

A MILESTONE DAY IN MEMPHIS

Orange County SC retained their position on top of the USL Championship's Western Conference after a 2-0 victory over Memphis 901 FC last Saturday at AutoZone Park in Memphis, TN. Goals from midfielder Brian Iloski and forward Thomas Amang secured all three points for the Black and Orange, who remained undefeated on the young 2024 season. Goalkeeper Colin Shutler recorded two saves in his third shutout of the season, placing him in a share of the league lead for clean sheets. It also marked the 101st match in an Orange County shirt for Iloski, setting a new club record for most appearances all-time (Michael Orozco, 100). Midfielder Seth Casiple entered the match as a substitute in the 67th minute, playing in his 200th career USL Championship regular season match. It was also the first start of the season for midfielder Kyle Scott, who turned in a Man of the Match performance completing 34/39 passes, winning 8/10 duels, 3/3 tackles, and had two interceptions in 67 minutes.
