The Twosies fought hard with ten men for the majority of their match last Saturday, but were taken down with a tight final score of 0-1 against San Jose. For their next match, the Loons look to bounce back against North Texas SC. In the four times these two teams have met, the Loons have failed to secure a win. However, the competition has gotten tighter, with the last two games ending with identically narrow scorelines of 2-1. Currently, MNUFC2 is sitting two spots and three points above North Texas SC in the standings. With nine games left in the regular season, it's time for the Twosies to hit their stride and secure a postseason spot.
