ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - CITY SC made history with their fourth win of the season, beating out San Jose 3-0 at CITYPARK. They are the first MLS expansion team to have four straight wins in their inaugural season.

The match started quietly until a series of passes down the field led to number 11 Nicholas Gioacchini sneaking a goal past the Earthquakes goal keep at minute 33. Then in extra minutes in the first half, João Klauss kept with the ball after several San Jose defenders tried stopping him in the penalty box and was able to sink the ball into the back of the net, doubling their lead.

In the second half, number 7 Tomás Ostrák increased CITY’s lead once again in minute 67 with a goal from outside the penalty box.

This will be the club’s first shutout game, keeping the Earthquakes scoreless.


If CITY wins tonight, they will be the first MLS expansion team to win their first four games in their inaugural season. The Earthquakes have two wins and one loss this season.

It’s set to be a chilly night with temperatures in the mid-20s, so fans headed to the game should bundle up.

Games can be watched on Apple TV with an MLS season pass.
