RGV FC are fresh off a short break in action which will benefit their physical performance in contrast to a Sacramento Republic side who are coming off five games in 15 days.

Sacramento claimed a mid-week victory against New Mexico United, 2-1, in league action on August 3rd. Mark Briggs' side are fresh off a historic franchise berth to the Lamar Hunt U.S Open Cup Final and are determined to perform well in front of their fans after two quick road matches in their schedule. The last meeting between the clubs went the RGV FC way as the Toros secured a 2-1 home victory on April 23.

Featuring a solid back line, Wilmer Cabrera is confident that his possession and defensive efforts will be a force to be reckoned with this Saturday as Wahab Ackwei, Erik Pimentel, Jonathan Ricketts and newly acquired Akeem Ward have quickly shaped up to be a threat to any attacking team in the league. Christian Pinzon has added a nice dynamic to the wing attack for the Toros and is confident in playing road matches as he looks to disturb the Sacramento back line who have mirrored the goal conceded margin of RGV as of late.

For single match home tickets please visit or the H-E-B Park box office, open weekly from 10am-6pm CST.
