Match Preview: ASC vs. LA Wolves – May 5, 2018

Two contenders playing friendly…

This Saturday May 5th, ASC San Diego will be taking on a United Premier Soccer League side, the LA Wolves. The Wolves are playing in one of the best amateur soccer leagues in the country, and have fared well as they have remained undefeated against tough competition.

LA currently sits second in their league, with an absolutely astounding goal differential of 20 goals for, and allowing only 3. ASC will need strong performances from its forward-five if they hope to come out on top in this matchup, and should prove to be a valuable test as ASC pursues an NPSL championship. The Wolves are preparing for their match against FC Golden State in the first round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on May 9th.

Maintaining consistency…

Ziggy’s squad has played its best stretch of soccer in this young NPSL season. They are coming off a decisive 5-1 victory over division rivals FC Golden State. ASC San Diego has been clicking on all cylinders, and Ziggy will have a tough decision to make on his starting eleven come Saturday. Will he decide to play his key players, or rest them –  remaining healthy at this stage of the season is vital to the team’s goals.
