Sacramento Republic FC took the regular season series against Orange County SC with a 1-0 win at Papa Murphy's Park. The Boys in Old Glory Red entered the match off a road loss to Real Monarchs, while Orange County was undefeated in their last two matches. Both sides had chances in the first half but the deadlock wouldn't break until the 58th minute. Villyan Bijev was taken down in the box and the referee awarded Republic FC a penalty kick. Jeremy Hall stepped up to take the kick and coolly slotted his shot past Andre Rawls to give Republic FC the 1-0 win.

Best full 90 we’ve seen from the @SacRepublicFC this season. Deserved every one of the 3 points tonight. Nearly a flawless match. Tough hand ball call and a finger tip deflection on Bijev’s shot or this game is 3-0. Great to see this team tied for 2nd w/ the schedule they’ve had— Rob McAllister (@Rob_McAllister) June 3, 2018
