The North County Battalion and Temecula FC played to a 2-2 draw last Saturday afternoon, at Del Norte High School, in the final tune-up match for both sides before the NPSL regular season kicks off this weekend.
Sergio Ortiz and Esteban Reyes each logged quality goals for the Battalion, the latter equalizing the score ten minutes from the final whistle. Ortiz had given the home side the lead in the opening six minutes. Temecula scored twice before the hour mark and exhibited strong organization throughout the game.
The Battalion will head north to San Bernardino this Saturday, April 2, for the NPSL season opener against Southern California Sports Club. Supporters have the opportunity to travel with the team on the team bus. They will return to Del Norte High School for their inaugural home match on April 9 as they host FC Hasental. Kickoff is set for 7:00pm.
