A dominant 4-0 victory over a third-tier team Wednesday night did a lot to lighten the mood around Republic FC. The previous six matches resulted in five losses and a tie and Sacramento scored no goals in those games, a span stretching 563 minutes.
Harry Williams scored in the 12th and 15th minutes to spark Republic FC to a 4-0 win Wednesday night at Papa Murphy’s Park. Republic FC will face Reno 1868 FC on May 31 in the third round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.
Leaders announced Monday, May 15 that Republic FC will be acquired by Sac Soccer & Entertainment Holdings, the group led by Kings minority owner Kevin Nagle that filed a Major League Soccer expansion application in January. It also means the Republic FC brand and team crest will be part of the MLS bid.
