Republic FC slips past AZ United SC in residence opener

Late second-half substitute Cameron Iwasa scored in the eighty-fourth min on an assist from James Kiffe to lead Republic FC to a 1-0 USL win over AZ United SC in front of a new Bonney Field record crowd of 11.569 on Saturday night.

Iwasa, a second-year forward out of Jesuit High School, entered in the eightieth min after Sacramento had been dominating the match but had no goals.

Iwasa connected on a blast from the top box after Kiffe made a powerful running to beat two defenders, then laid off the ball as his feet were taken out by an Arizona defender.

“I was buzzing to obtain on the field,” Iwasa said. “As a sub I wanted to arrive on and create something happen. Fortunately I was able to do so. It’s a enormous win; three points is crucial.”

Republic FC (two-0-0) added new field N and west-side seating during the offseason to produce the record crowd.

“Unbelievable,” Republic FC coach Paul Buckle said. “The noise level was fantastic.”

It also extended Republic FC’s USL Bonney Field sellout streak to twenty-seven matches, something that likely will be mentioned when Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber comes to Sacramento on April fourteen to evaluate Sacramento’s readiness for MLS as an expansion franchise.

Before Iwasa’s score, Republic FC peppered the goal throughout the match and had several near misses.

Two went in and there were thunderous cheers for a few moments.

Danny Barrera hit a wide-open Emrah Klimenta sprinting into an opening behind the United defense in the fifty-fifth minute, and Klimenta blasted it past goalkeeper Carl Woszczynski. But he was ruled offside on a close call.

In the thirty-sixth minute, San Jose Earthquakes loan player Label Sherrod headed a shot past Woszczynski, but it was disallowed because of a foul.

Republic FC had one astonishment in its starting lineup. Recently signed rookie and former Cal Poly star Chase Minter got his first professional start in the midfield and played a tiny more than a half.

Republic FC moved to 4-1-2 all-time against Arizona United.

Republic FC will visit the Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2 on April 10.
