The Sacramento Republic FC look to get back to the playoffs and avenge back-to-back early exits at the hands of Swope Park this 2019 season, and they showed off their offensive firepower in a 5-0 win against Sacramento Gold on Saturday night to open up the preseason.

Last year’s leading goal scorer, Cameron Iwasa, opened the scoring with a goal in the 11th minute, off a beautiful assist from Villyan Bijev. Despite scoring early, the Republic were unable to find the back of the net again until the second half, when Stefano Bonomo connected with a strike in the 68th minute. From there the floodgates were opened, with Quincy Butler, Hayden Partain and Tyler Blackwood all scoring before the final whistle.

Sacramento’s next preseason match is scheduled for Wednesday, February 13th against the Ventura County Fusion.
