The times has come for the Republic to start their USL 2018 season. Personally it is hard to comprehend this is already the fifth season of soccer for the quails.
For tonight’s match the Republic will face San Antonio FC, this will be their third season in the league finishing last year with a 17-11-4 record while reaching the western conference semifinals. Last season during the two meetings between the clubs the Republic lost 0-1 away and then tied 1-1 at home.
