Throughout Cameron Iwasa’s excellent career in Old Glory Red, the forward has set a number of club records and reached numerous statistical milestones. In a look back at some of his career’s notable moments, some of the most significant come to mind- those that made Iwasa the club’s top record-holder in so many categories.
Shortly after Sounders FC broke a 1-1 tie in the 70th minute of the 2015 season-opener, Republic FC countered with their first change of the night. Entering for Joaquin Rivas, a 21 year old Cameron Iwasa-then donning the number 14- took the field for the first time as a member of his hometown club, logging 18 minutes in his professional debut.
In an eventful first half that saw the Indomitable Club post three scores en route to a 4-0 victory over Tulsa Roughnecks FC, Iwasa found the net in the 19th minute for his 12th goal of the season. The score tied the club record for goals in season from a single player, which he would go on to break two years later.
In an emotional rivalry match with Reno 1868 FC, Iwasa made club history when he opened the scoring just after half to put the Indomitable Club up 1-0 in the Biggest Little City. The forward’s 47th minute score was the 26th of his career with the Indomitable Club- putting him past Rodrigo Lopez to become the top goal-scorer in club history.
Not two weeks after taking over as the Club’s all-time scoring leader, Iwasa captured another scoring record when he netted the first of three scores for Sacramento in a win over Sounders FC 2. Cam’s 20th minute strike to break a then scoreless tie was his 13th goal of the season, pulling him away from himself and Rodrigo Lopez to set the club record for goals scored in a season by a single player.
Before a crowd of 10,000+, Iwasa’s appearance against Las Vegas Lights FC marked a very special occasion for the forward. The match marked his 100th career appearance with the club, making him just the third player to reach the century mark in Sacramento after former teammates Emrah Klimenta and James Kiffe.
In the first ever meeting between Republic FC and new NorCal rival Oakland Roots SC, Iwasa opened his 2021 scoring account by burying a 60th minute attempt in the near corner. The left-footed strike- one of six goals scored in an exciting contest with the Bay Area side- marked the 50th goal of his career with Sacramento, a milestone only he has reached.
