This week San Antonio FC (11-1-8) heads to Reno 1868 (9-5-6) for the first time in franchise history as the two clubs face off for the second time this season. After the second-place Texas club dealt Reno a 4-0 beating at Toyota Field, the Nevada side found new life and drastically improved their form. Now sitting in fourth place in the west, Reno is out for revenge in a match that could have implications on the Western Conference playoff standings.

Game Twenty-One. Reno, NV. 8/12/2017. Kickoff 9:30pm CDT. #RNOvSA
How to Watch: USL Match Center,
Keys for SAFC: Any time USL all-time leading scorer Dane Kelly is on the field, the opposing defense needs to be on point. After holding Reno to a clean sheet in their last meeting, SAFC will not only need to bring their best defensively but also bag at least a pair of goals if they hope to secure three points on the road.
Player to Watch: Matt Cardone was between the pipes last time these two met and managed a clean sheet. Diego Restrepo has been among the best in USL since taking on the starting role and will need to continue that form in Nevada.

Pitch Black News Projected Starting XI (4-5-1): Restrepo; Newnam, McCarthy, Ibeagha, Cochrane; Tyrpak, Castillo, O'Ojong, Reed, Forbes; Elizondo
Score Predictions:
Kyle Mahnke SAFC 2-2 Reno
Jonathan Check SAFC 1-2 Reno
Jose Mario Jimenez SAFC 3-0 Reno
Jesus Miguel Garcia SAFC 2-1 PHX
