Following their shutout victory against FC Santa Clarita this past Sunday, LA10 seeks to continue their momentum and build a winning streak on their home turf. They face Valley United FC this Sunday, March 31st at 3 p.m. at El Camino Real Charter High School. As regularly scheduled, the game will stream live via https://mycujo.tv/video/la10fc.
LA10 outscored FC Santa Clarita 4-0 and earned their first victory since their promotion to the UPSL Pro Premier- SoCal North Division. Colombian midfielder Diego Lopez opened the scoring, Johnny Navas bagged the second, and Israeli striker Shalev Asraf earned a double—including a cheeky chip to seal the victory.
Asraf expressed excitement post-game about scoring half of the goals, claiming it feels good to be back to scoring a lot like last season.
“I feel amazing,” said Asraf. “As a team we played well tonight… we can just be proud of this game tonight and keep moving up.”
Valley United FC currently sit last in the Western Conference standings with four consecutive defeats and no victories. The boys in stripes will look to capitalize on their momentum and take advantage of United’s slow start.
Assistant Coach Marc Zimmermann said he’s proud the team bounced back from their first loss in club history against undefeated Cal FC the previous week. Zimmermann attributed teamwork and working as a unit to the team’s success throughout the game leading to the dominant victory.
“Our game plan for next game is we have to work on the scoring opportunities,” said Zimmerman. “We have to work on the offense next week and that’s one of the big topics we talked about before the game. I think every victory gives you more confidence and that’s what we have to build on. We want to build a good foundation, go from there and win the next game.”
