Wrong names, mispronunciations, and emotional questioning of the referee’s calls are just some of the broadcast issues I witnessed over the past two Orange County SC matches. For fans of the league, these issues are a known thing. If the USL wants to be taken more seriously, they need to fix them.
Orange County Soccer Club and Sacramento Republic FC took to the pitch even on points with hopes of securing fourth place and a home playoff game spot on the line for both teams. While they cannot get to fourth place on their own, both teams came into the game hoping to get three points to put pressure on Real Monarchs.
Penultimate regular season match is a must-win for both sides as they look to secure a fourth place finish.
