With 6 points up for grabs, Sacramento managed to pull away from both encounters with a single point. After tying Hollywood United FC 1-1, the Gold lost against SD Flash 1-3.
After the long weekend team General Manager Ruben Mora Sr. commented, “It was a long road trip for us. Along with these factors we did not have a lot of our core team travel. This doesn’t excuse our performance but it does make a difference.” Mora Sr, further added, ” I am proud of the guys that played their hearts out.”
Aside from the unfavorable turnout, Mora Sr. complemented the play of Abrahm Prado. In his first year with the Gold, Prado managed to score both of the Sacramento goals.
“Abrahm did well for us this weekend. He stepped up when we needed him…we would like to see a lot more of that.”
Up next Sacramento will try to return to their winning ways as they get ready to host FC Hasental on Sunday, May 22, 2011at River City High School. Kick off is set for 6 pm.
