Orange County SC will be looking to play the part of spoiler in this last regular season game of the 2022 USL Championship season. With both sides’ postseason fate sealed, OCSC will be looking to keep SAFC’s name out of the history books. They’ll turn to their youth, like forwards Bryce Jamison and Korede Osundina, to get the job done.
Orange County SC is 3-3-3 all-time against San Antonio.

JAMISON OFF THE MARK!
Forward Bryce Jamison tallied his first professional goal in Orange County SC’s 2-1 loss to El Paso last Saturday, October 7. Jamison signed with Orange County SC from the Barcelona Residency Academy on September 23 and made his first appearance for OCSC in the 1-1 draw with Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC. He scored in the 83rd minute from the top of the box off an assist from midfielder Brian Iloski.
DOWN TO THE WIRE…
Current Golden Boot race leader, OCSC forward Milan Iloski has been ruled out of Saturday’s match with a lower-body injury, so he will have to hope that his 22 goals will be enough to take home the 2022 USL Championship Golden Boot. His challengers? Memphis forward Phillip Goodrum, who has 20 goals entering Saturday’s match, and Oakland forward Ottar Magnus Karlsson with 19.
