DAVIS, California — The San Francisco Glens weathered an early goal from the host Davis Legacy to tally a trio of unanswered scores to win 3-1 on Friday night.
Simon Vaca-Lorenzi beat the San Francisco backline in the 27th minute to give Davis a 1-0 lead. The hosts were not intimidated by the streaking Glens, who had won two straight games by a combined 6-1 aggregate after drawing with the Legacy 1-1 in the two teams' first meeting.
But Gabe Bracken Serra drew a penalty right before halftime and Max Chrétien netted afterward to draw the Glens level.
San Francisco took over in the second half, as a goal from Nathan Simeon in the 56th minute gave the Glens a 2-1 lead. However, in the 72nd minute, Davis drew a penalty kick of their own. Thankfully, newly signed goalkeeper James Swomley saved the ensuing PK and preserved the lead.
Glens captain Adrian Medina, at last recovered from injury, marked his 2023 debut with a goal in the 85th minute to put the game away.
San Francisco now has a chance for both revenge and reward next Sunday, June 25th at 12:30 p.m. when Monterey Bay FC 2 comes to Skyline with first place on the line. In their first clash, the Glens fell 1-0 at Cardinale Stadium in Seaside.
