San Antonio came out strong in their first road match of the season. Tsiskaridze opened up the scoring with a 60 yard bomb from a free-kick that gave the visitors a 1-0 lead early in the game. It made headlines...
This wasn't Tsiskaridze's first long goal, he had one from almost the same spot when he was on the Swedish Superettan club, Jönköpings Södra IF.
San Antonio fell behind in the second-half though when former Scorpion, Pablo Campos, netted his first goal since 2013. Christian Ramirez converted a PK in the 59' to give the home side a 2-1 advantage. Late in the game, the Minnesota goalie, Sammy Ndjock, tried to clear a ball in the box, but instead hit Elizondo on the head and San Antonio was given a penalty. Rafael Castillo calmly slotted it home for his first goal of the season and secured an away point, the first point of the season for San Antonio, spoiling Minnesota's first home game and sending their record crowd home disappointed.
I had predicted that Minnesota would win this game; They came close to winning, but San Antonio played hard and capitalized off of two mistakes by the United keeper. A good result against a good squad. There is still plenty of work to do, but a least we aren't 0-0-3 to start the season. Each game we look a little better.
The red & black return to the field this coming Saturday, May 2, against the expansion Jacksonville Armada in Florida. This will be the first match-up between the two sides.
