5:00 am FC Ryukyu vs Tochigi SC - J2 League
Ryukyu’s opponent was originally founded in 1953 as the Tochigi Teachers’ Soccer Club
1:45 pm Venezia FC at Roma – Serie A
Venezia got the win last week but are still five points from safety with two games left. Still need a miracle finish and sixth place Roma will not be easy.
2:00 pm Troyes vs Lens
Sixteenth place Troyes hosts seventh place Lens. Any result in these last two games ensures they stay up. Erik Palmer-Brown as been a key player on their defense and might have worked himself back into the USMNT picture.
4:00 pm Barilleros FC at Des Moines United FC – UPSL Premier League
Barilleros look to bounce back after a bad loss.
5:30pm KC Current at Orlando Pride
The Current are looking to get their first win of the regular season after a strong Challenge Cup.
Will be interesting to see if SKC can build on three straight league results and a dramatic Open Cup win.
5/15 – Sunday
2:00 pm KC Courage vs Sporting Nebraska - UWS
This game is their home opener and will be at Avila University. I know a couple of these players from youth soccer and in college and I expect the Courage to be very competitive in the league. It looks like this is the only local game this weekend so give them some support if you can.
7:30 pm Sunflower State FC at Reign FK – NPSL
Gabe Porras scored a brace to get Sunflower State off to a good 2-0 win, the Reign are 0-2 in the season.
9:00 pm Sporting KC II at Portland Timbers2
SKC II on the road the day after the first teams play. A positive result coming back from two down for a 4-2 win.

Sunflower State FC with a 2-0 win.
An important draw on the road.
FC Ryukyu at Roasso Kumamoto
Ryukyu broke the 10 game winless streak with a solid 2-0 win on the road. Ryukyu was a little bit lucky to not be down facing a lot of shots in the first half. They weathered the storm and scored twice... The second goal was fun.
Highlights from the win.
Not the last match but this would have been a fun game as a neutral...
Venezia FC vs Bologna
Venezia with a 4-3 win. And that winning goal was nice!
