Orange county fc 2 begin fall upsl season with victory at oxnard

Oxnard, CA – It was a familiar venue for members for Orange County FC 2 on September 7.

But this was the first meeting between OCFC 2 and Oxnard Guerreros FC in the United Premier Soccer League. 

The two teams have a good amount of familiarity with one another due to being in the same division of the NPSL and playing each other two times a season going back to 2017.

Winning has never come easy at Del Sol Stadium, but OCFC 2 found itself up 1-0 at the half courtesy of a goal scored by Mo Abboushi. 

All the talk prior to the match was about OCFC 2’s perfect preseason and the momentum certainly carried into the match against Oxnard as OCFC 2 doubled the lead to 2-0 in the second half after a goal from Isaac Garcia. 

But Raul Gonzalez cut the lead in half to bring Oxnard back into the match. 

Both teams traded possession and opportunities but a goal from Coby Isaoglu put a stop to any late heroics from Oxnard as OCFC 2 earned an important 3-1 victory. 

Next on the schedule for OCFC 2 is another road match against A.S. Los Angeles on September 15 at Whittier College.
