Phoenix Rising FC (USL) 1, San Francisco Deltas (NASL) 2
San Francisco Deltas and Phoenix Rising FC were headed to a scoreless 90 minutes until things heated up late in the desert. San Francisco’s Kyle Bekker’s free kick deflected off the wall and wrong-footed the goalkeeper on its way to the opening goal in the 81st minute. Just three minutes later, Omar Bravo converted a penalty to level the match after being clattered over in the penalty area. Just before the final whistle, Deltas substitute Tommy Heinemann stunned the home crowd with a last gasp goal on his first touch to give the visitors a 2-1 win. San Francisco’s win sets up a Bay Area derby with San Jose Earthquakes (M.L.S.) at Avaya Stadium.
