Austin @ SAFC
Clayton and Matt talk about SAFC’s 1-1 home draw with Austin Bold on Saturday night in SA. Jose Gallegos salvaged a 1-1 tie in the 92nd minute after a rather leggy performance from the home team. Too many games? Not enough squad rotation? We also saw a new, old goalkeeper. Then we look forward to another “English week” with a Wednesday night game home vs. OKC and then again Saturday home to Tulsa. Six games in three weeks for the boys, which can exhaust even a viewer or a pod host, as you’ll hear in free kicks. Enjoy!
