Quakes win the Sacramento Cup vs Chivas USA

Believe it or not there is other soccer happening in the world other than World Cup! To be more specific the Sacramento Cup.

While in my hometown, Vacaville, made a bit of a last minute decision to head up to Raley Field for the inaugural Sacramento Cup.

It was not a regular season game so got to catch a lot of the non-starters, including goalkeeper Jon Busch. Though relatively untested thanks to a good back line, the 0-0 draw at the end of regulation led to a penalty shoot out. Jon Busch got to be the hero of the game, stopping the 6th shot from the other keeper Dan Kennedy. Jason Hernandez scored and game ended 6-5. What an exciting finish, and glad quakes got the win.

Looking forward to the 2nd annual Sacramento Cup!
