Cal FC Looks To Pull Off Another Magical Run in the US Open Cup
Wynalda has since left the team and Webster is on his own coaching this time around.
Cal FC’s first game of this year’s tournament is May 14 in the second round against LA Galaxy II of the USL (Division III). Webster is realistic about his team’s chances against organized and fit professional players, but is hoping that they “can be compact and disciplined, hang around, make them nervous and then see what happens.” While they don’t possess the same caliber players as that magical run of 2012, Webster believes the group is solid and gives Cal FC a puncher’s chance. After all, anything is possible in a one-off match – they proved that just two years ago.
The match is scheduled May 14 at 7:30pm PT in the StubHub Center Track & Field Stadium in Carson, CA.
