Kyle Greig put the visiting Chupacabras on the board while many San Antonio fans were still in line for the $1 beers. Greig headed in a cross from Austin Martz just two minutes into the match.

Mikey Lopez would get SAFC on the board in the 21st minute when he headed a ball passed Jake Fenalson. Lopez would again factor into the scoring in the 60th minute. His cross found the head of Kris Tyrpak, who put the home squad ahead for good. 

San Antonio FC ranked fourth overall in the USL last season in terms of per-match attendance with an average of 7,152 at Toyota Stadium each time out. Saturday’s match, which was the first of the 2018 season at Toyota Field, had an announced attendance of 7,946.

STLFC manager Anthony Pulis gave his assessment of his team’s performance after the match in a story posted to the club website.

“I don’t think we got what we deserved tonight,” said STLFC Head Coach Anthony Pulis. “I thought the performance was definitely an improvement on last week. We created the better opportunities, especially in the first half, but couldn’t capitalize on them. But when you give two poor goals away like we did, you always give yourself an uphill struggle on the road. Important thing now is we learn from this and improve again next week at home against Colorado.”
