Real Monarchs suffered its first loss since May last Saturday, when it dropped a 3-1 result to San Antonio FC. After San Antonio FC picked up two goals in the first half, FW Lionel Etoundi was shown a red card in the 42nd minute after going in for a late and dangerous tackle. Real Monarchs managed to punish a San Antonio mistake to pick up a goal through MF Luis Palma and fought through the second half to find the equalizer that wasn't meant to be as SAFC put the game to rest with a late third.

Now the Monarchs return home to continue its journey in the Four-Corners Cup against Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC this Friday. The Monarchs found its first road win of 2019 against Colorado Springs in late June after mounting a comeback with two unanswered goals though FW Kyle Coffee and RSL MF Justin Portillo. Going into the next chapter of the Four-Corners Cup, the Monarchs sit second on the regional cup table while Colorado Springs sits at the bottom.
