orange county fc to renew i-5 rivalry with albion at championship soccer stadium

Match Info: Wednesday April 18th, 7:00 PM Kickoff at Championship Soccer Stadium - 8272 Great Park Blvd, Irvine, CA 92618

OCFC Record: 1-0-2

Opponent: Albion Soccer Club, 2-0-1

Last Meeting: 4-3 loss on June 24, 2017 in Irvine, CA

Outlook: OCFC started the 2018 NPSL season on a positive note with a 5-0 victory over Oxnard in its home opener.

But since then, draws away from home against Temecula and FC Golden State have put OCFC in a must-win situation going into Wednesday night’s game with Albion.

OCFC will look to win its second game of the season against a familiar but difficult opponent.

Last year it was Albion that stunned OCFC with four unanswered goals in the second half at Portola High School.

It is a memory that OCFC fans and players would rather not talk about. But come Wednesday night, it will be business as usual for OCFC.
