Reno 1868 FC Continues USL Unbeaten Streak After Topping San Antonio FC

Posted: Updated:

Reno’s incredible USL unbeaten streak was extended Saturday thanks to forward Mo Thiaw’s heroics as Reno captured a 2-1 win over Western Conference foe San Antonio FC.

In front of a crowd of 4,565 fans, Reno extended its USL undefeated streak to eight-straight and moved into the Top 8 in the Western Conference after a thrilling win.

Forward Jerry van Ewijk continued his red-hot form and opened Saturday’s scoring in the 39th minute with a fantastic finish off a Mo Thiaw pass. The goal was van Ewijk’s fifth goal in the past three weeks (including U.S. Open Cup play).

Defensively, both teams hand to fight off chance after chance as Reno goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski was spectacular finishing with four total saves. Reno held onto a 1-0 lead until the 47th minute when a San Antonio’s Owayne Omar Gordon found the back of the net off a corner kick.

But Reno was not about to walk away with a second-straight USL draw at home.

That’s when Thiaw stepped up and headed a van Ewijk free kick in to put Reno up 2-1 in the 61st minute. Saturday marked Thiaw’s second match this year with at least one goal and one assist. 

The next 30 minutes gave way to Reno’s top defensive performance of the season as the club fought off 10 second-half shots (three on target). Both teams finished with 19 shots each.

Reno will get a few days rest before hitting the road again Saturday at OKC Energy FC. The club returns back home to Greater Nevada Field on June 9 for its first match against Fresno FC.
