Dragons Destroy SFCFC, Defeat San Francisco 4-0
Paid Crowd of 2,305 Witness the Dragons Jump to 2nd Place in the Central Pacific Division
The Burlingame Dragons F.C. had recently heard the murmurs about a rivalry brewing between Burlingame and the new Premier Development League team, San Francisco City F.C.. The first shot in the rivalry has been fired and fired emphatically by the Dragons, as they systematically picked apart SFCFC in a 4-0 win Friday night. The paid crowd of 2,305 at Dragons Stadium were entertained with another Dragon's home win, on the same night many fans stayed home to watch the Golden State Warriors win Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
Burlingame came into the game needing to get out to a quick start as they have floundered at the beginning of the last three contests they had played. Dragons forward Danny Musovksi made sure the home team did not make it a 4th poor start in a row when he slipped the ball past SFCFC goalkeeper Austin Harms to put the Dragons up 1-0 in the 8th minute. It was only the beginning of a big night from the UNLV All-American as he begins to stake his claim as one of the most dangerous strikers in the league.
The Dragons would go up 2-0 in the 37th minute as Musovski scored his second of the evening off of a slick pass by Burlingame forward Jamael Cox. The Dragons were in control and would take the two goal lead into halftime.
Musovski would pick up right where he left off after the interval as a solo effort in the 59th minute resulted in a 3-0 Dragons lead. It completed a hat trick on the night and was Musovski’s 5th goal in the last two games, tying him for the team lead in goals with Cox.
Burlingame would add a 4th goal in the 89th minute, as substitute Brian Wright took control of a Khalid Arramdani header, sprinted down the field and hammered the finish towards the far post for the icing on the cake. It was Wright’s 2nd goal of the season as he and Arramdani have combined for two goals off of the bench in the last two games.
The Dragons would see out the rest of the game and win by the impressive score of 4-0. The win moves the Dragons (4-3-1- 13 points) into 2nd place in the Central Pacific division, one point behind the Fresno Fuego. The loss drops SFCFC (3-2-1- 10 points) into 4th place in the division, ahead of only BYU.
Burlingame’s next home game is Saturday, June 18th as they welcome the BYU Cougars to Dragons Stadium. Kickoff is at 4pm. Tickets are on sale for only $10 and can be purchased on our website at www.burlingamedragons.com
