Sacramento Republic continued a surprising hot streak on the offensive end of the ball in last Saturday's win, getting revenge in a big way over Portland for an earlier 0-1 loss on the road in the April slump. As the playoff race is heating up, the Republic is inching towards setting offensive and defensive records, some of which we take a look at by the numbers:
8 - Goals scored by the Republic in the last two games combined, the most over two games since August 17th and 20th in 2014. Also the most goals ever scored in consecutive USL games in team history.
10 - Goals scored by Cameron Iwasa this season.
3 - Players who have scored at least 10 goals in the regular season for Republic. Rodrigo Lopez scored 10 in 2014 and 2015, Thomas Stewart scored 11 in 2014.
11 - Record number of goals scored by a Republic player in the regular season, set by Thomas Stewart earned in 2014. Iwasa needs just one more to tie the record.
20 - Record for most all-time goals in USL play by any Republic player, currently held by Rodrigo Lopez.
4 - Goals scored by Mike da Fonte this USL season, the second highest tally of any Republic player this season.
3 - Previous record for goals in a single season by a Republic defender, set by Mickey Daly in 2014.
12 - Games started by da Fonte this season.
27 - Games started by Daly when he set the record in 2014.
14 - With Wilson Kneeshaw's late goal in his debut against Portland Timbers 2, 14 unique players have now scored a goal for the Republic this season on a roster of 28.
3 - Republic players who have scored at least three goals this season (Iwasa, da Fonte, Tommy Thompson)
1 - Losses by Sacramento in club history all-time in the month of August.
15 - Republic games that have been played in August, with two more coming this week.
1.42 - Goals scored per game this season by Republic, the fewest in team history.
1.00 - Goals allowed per game by Sacramento, tied with the 2014 season for fewest allowed in team history.
9 - Shutouts recorded by the Republic this USL season, tying the record set in 2014.
What records do you think Sacramento will set this season? Best defense? Most shutouts? Will Iwasa become the new single season scoring champion for the Republic? Will he challenge Lopez for the most goals scored in club history record?
