A return home to Bonney Field saw the first Sacramento Republic game of the season where both teams scored, and it left plenty of questions. Was a draw missing arguably two of the most valuable Sacramento players in Emrah Klimenta and JJ Koval a good thing? We start to look deeper into the numbers again this week.
2 - Goals scored by the Republic's leading scorers, Tommy Thompson and Cameron Iwasa, this season.
9 - Games that Swope Park Rangers have now gone without earning a shutout.
16 - The Republic is undefeated in the last 16 games in which they have scored a goal.
16 - Consecutive games that Sacramento has either recorded a shutout or allowed just one goal.
5 - The Republic's undefeated streak against MLS 2 teams.
4 - The Republic's next 4 league games are against MLS 2 teams.
0.44 - Goals allowed per game in the USL by Sacramento this season (1st in the USL).
0.78 - Goals scored per game in the USL by Sacramento this season (26th in the USL).
1.22 - Average goals for and against this USL season.
1 - Other USL teams that currently have a statistically above average defense and below average offense (San Antonio).
2 - USL players who have scored more total goals than the entire Republic have combined (Jack McBean - 11, Kyle Greig - 9).
3 - Sacramento Republic players who have accumulated three yellow cards (Derek Foran, Chris Christian, Octavio Guzman). An automatic suspension occurs at five cards.
810 - Derek Foran, Chris Christian, and Dominik Jakubek have all played 810 minutes this season, the most of any Republic.
.789 - Save percentage by Jakubek this season, 10th best among goalkeepers who have multiple starts this season.
14 - The Republic have earned only 14 points in their first 9 matches this season, their fewest ever (15 in 2015, 16 in 2014).
Looking ahead to the US Open Cup and the rematch against Los Dos, some of the most important numbers will be those on the back of the kits as we await the return of Emrah Klimenta and JJ Koval. What other numbers do you see as important?
