Professional soccer team Sacramento Republic FC played host to the New York Cosmos before a sellout crowd of 20,000-plus on Saturday at Hughes Stadium.
In addition to the game, which the Cosmos won 3-1, Sac Republic put on a show. Epsilona, a local band played in the hour leading up to the game’s start, and several food-truck and sports paraphernalia vendors set up just outside the stadium.
It was simply great to see Sac City’s venerable stadium shown in such a positive light for the college, city and team. Congratulations and thanks to all who were involved.
