The Republic's performances last week left us feeling a bit down. This week's look at the numbers is a bit of a mixed bag.

Well that week was certainly something that happened. Between Wednesday's unmitigated disaster that the Levee Patrol dubbed the Silence of the Quails (which I am still tying to strike from my memory) and the Foran incident part deux, this week's look at the numbers might be interesting.

6 - Sacramento Republic league games in which both teams have scored multiple goals.

3 - Number of those games where the opponent was Los Dos.

3 - All time wins by the home team in Republic - LA Galaxy II games.

12 - Games played between Sacramento to Los Angeles.

51 - Cards given in those games.

7 - Times Sacramento has allowed multiple goals at home in USL play.

3 - Number of those games that were against Los Dos.

3 - Times Sacramento has lost the following game after a game in which they allowed multiple goals.

16 - The Republic's streak of not conceding multiple goals, which ended last Saturday.

7 - Different goal scorers for the Republic this USL season.

22 - Where Sacramento ranks among USL teams in points gained per game at home.

35 - Points Sacramento would gain at home if they win every single one of their remaining games at Bonney.

32 - Points gained by Sacramento at home in 2014.
