Sacramento Republic FC midfielder Jure Matjasic has been named to the USL Team of the Week for Week 30. This is the first appearance for Matjasic on the USL Team of the Week, and the # overall Republic FC player.
Matjasic had a stellar Week 30, nabbing the goal that clinched the win against Swope Park Rangers on Wednesday as Republic FC took a 3-1 victory. The Slovenian midfielder then notched a pair of assists in the 2-1 win over LA Galaxy II that secured a top-three finish for the Sacramento club and guaranteed a home playoff match.
With his assists against Los Dos, Matjasic is now tied for second place with Villyan Bijev on the assists leaderboard at five; Cameron Iwasa holds the top spot with six. Matjasic's goal against the Rangers was his second in USL play, although one of his most memorable goals of the season came in the U.S. Open Cup. Seattle Sounders FC tied the Fourth Round match against Republic FC in stoppage time, forcing the match into extra time. With penalty kicks looming, Matjasic snatched the match-winner in the 115th minute to send the boys in red to the Quarterfinals of the U.S. Open Cup for the second consecutive year.
Republic FC are back in action this Saturday in their last regular season match, facing off against Las Vegas FC. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. at 7:30 p.m
Tickets are also on sale now for Republic FC's Round 1 playoff match that will take place on Oct. 20 at Papa Murphy's Park.
