The San Francisco Glens knocked off Project 510 from the USL League Two unbeaten ranks in a 1-0 road victory at Ohlone College on Sunday.
Forward Max Chrétien blasted a right-wing feed from Ryan Dieter into the back of the net in the 32nd minute and the Glens held onto the lead for the remainder of the game thanks to an organized back line and some heroics in goal from Hugo Dutour.
Perhaps most impressive about San Francisco's shutout performance is that they earned a clean sheet despite having only 12 field players due to several injuries leading up to the game.
"What a great team win," Glens head coach Gabe Saucedo said. "Everybody came up big despite the circumstances. Max is a beast and Hugo was clutch. Slowly but surely we're finding our identity."
With the victory, the Glens now move within two points of Project 51O for first place in the Southwest Division heading into the annual San Francisco Derby next Saturday against SF City FC. Ironically, the 3 p.m. kickoff will take place at Boxer Stadium, where Glens first teams had been playing from the club's founding in 1961 through 2019.
