Orange County SC close out the 2018 USL regular season on Saturday evening with a match against Reno 1868 FC.
OCSC are looking to finish the season atop the Western Conference, and can guarantee that with a win or draw in Nevada. But Reno are a tough opponent, as they are seeking to get a top four seed in the West, and have been in nearly as good form as Orange County in recent weeks.
These teams last met in June, and played to a 2-2 draw. Honestly, this game could be a preview for a potential playoff showdown, but given the stakes of the match, don’t be surprised to see both teams really go for a result. Should be a good test on both sides before the playoffs begin next week.
Tale of the Tape:
Orange County SC: 66 points (20-7-6), 1st place in Western Conference; Goal Difference: +32; Last five games: W-W-W-W-W
Reno 1868 FC: 56 points (15-7-11), 5th place in Western Conference; Goal Difference: +16; Last five games: D-W-W-W-D
