SACRAMENTO, California (August 16, 2021) – Cam Iwasa’s opening goal from Saturday’s 2-1 home win over Las Vegas Lights FC has been nominated for USL Fans’ Choice Goal of the Week for Week 17. Voting is now open and runs through Thursday, August 19 at 9:00 a.m. PST at USLChampionship.com.
The buildup started with Mario Penagos dispossessing Las Vegas in the attacking midfield before playing the ball into space on the left side to Darek Formella, who threaded the ball into Iwasa. Surrounded by defenders, Iwasa rocketed a second touch off his left food into the back of the net for the equalizer.
With the strike, Iwasa added to his all-time club goals record and found the back of the net for the first time since June 2. This marks the third Fans’ Goal of the Week nomination for the Indomitable Club in four weeks after Nabi Kibunguchy took Week 14 honors and Luis Felipe was crowned for Week 15.
Republic FC is back on the road this weekend for a Saturday showdown in the desert with Phoenix Rising FC. The 7:30 p.m. PT kickoff will be broadcast on KQCA, My58, Estrella TV Sacramento (Spanish) and ESPN+.
