All-time regular season series: 2-1-0, SPR leads
San Antonio FC (8-2-0, 26pts) will face Swope Park Rangers (4-0-3, 12pts) on Friday night in Kansas for the first of a back-to-back series against the 2016 USL Western Conference champions. The two squads will play each other again next week in San Antonio. San Antonio has yet to taste victory against Rangers in their previous three matches in 2016. The lone point earned against SPR was in SAFC's inaugural home-opener last season in front of the club's largest ever crowd at Toyota Field - 8,466.
San Antonio comes into this match on a 10 match unbeaten streak to start their 2017 USL season. They've given up the fewest goals in the league with four and have the most shut-outs with seven. The team had six total shut-outs in all of the 2016 season. The Alamo City boys haven't allowed a league goal against them in 360 minutes with the last goal allowed coming over a month ago from S2. The squad is currently 4-0-0 on the road this season and will look to continue that SPR.
Swope Park are coming off a 1-0 loss to RGV FC and have lost three of their last four league matches. However, their four wins have all come at home where they have a goal differential of +6, scoring eight and giving up only two on the season at Children's Mercy Victory Field. This will also be the first time that SAFC midfielder Kris Tyrpak will play against the team he played for in 2016.
"Going back is bittersweet," said Tyrpak. "Hopefully we can go and spoil some of those memories for them, but I’m looking forward to a good game."
The game is Friday, May 26th at 7:30pm CST. #SPRvSA
