Game Comments: 

SSFAC closed out the first half of their schedule with an 8-2 romp over San Mateo Dinamo at Hillsdale High School. Varney Johnson recorded 2 goals & 2 assists, in a match that saw 4 other South City players score. Andrew Pantano's return to the line-up was huge as he provided the hat trick with 3 goals in a 15 minute span in the second half to break open the game. Gareth Lea, Bobby Quinlan, and Paul Pavich with his 1st goal of the season, rounded out the scoring. Not to be overlooked was the solid play from Goalkeeper Luis De Paz who was making his first start for SSF in goal. He played with confidence and was in charge as he earned his 1st victory with the team. SSF had taken an early 3-1 lead, but the Dinamo closed the gap to 3-2 just minutes into the second half. Then Johnson and Pantano made sure there weren't going to be any more surprises as they accounted for the second half barrage of 5 goals. The defense of SSF was dominant, as Scott Ellis, Ever Alvarez, Reuben Wartens, Hany Helmy and Pavich completely controlled the back line. Helmy was dangerous out on the wing and contributed 2 assists to the cause. Leo Monteiro led the midfield core of Quinlan, Gareth Lea, Omar Nawabi, Damian Hites & Fabio Marques. Nawabi and Monteiro also had 2 assists on the day. The game turned out to be one of South City's finest performances as they controlled the tempo of the game and the goals they scored came from quick touch passes that completely broke down the Dinamo defense. Despite injuries to key players, SSF continues to play hard and depends on the depth of it's roster to get positive results. "This team just plays for each other and doesn't worry about what they can't control" stated Coach Mike. "They play the game the way it was meant to be played, and they support each other on the pitch for 90 minutes. They are a complete team, a unified team, and a fun team to be around." South City will now prepare for the Outsiderz in a match to be played at Terra Bay Park next week.
