UIW loses 3-0 vs. new city soccer team

By Stephen Anderson


The San Antonio Football Cub closed out preseason play with a 3-0 win over the University of the Incarnate Word team Thursday, March 24, at Toyota Field.

In the first game, SAFC took on the Cardinals despite solid chances from both squads. The game went into the halftime scoreless after 45 minutes. SAFC got on the scoreboard in the second half with a penalty kick goal from Danny Garcia in the 55th minute. SAFC extended its lead just over seven minutes later when midfielder Victor Araujo put home a pretty shot to make it 2-0. Eventually SAFC would add one more goal to seal its 3-0 win.

“Over the course of (the) preseason, our defensive discipline has been very good,” San Antonio FC Head Coach Darren Powell said. “Towards the end of the game, things got a little sloppy. Not sure if it was fatigue or not doing the right thing at the right time. We’ll check the video later.”
