Game Central

In their most recent match, the Twosies fell just short of a positive result against St. Louis CITY2. While the final scoreline of 2-1 ended in the away team's favor, the future is still looking bright for MNUFC2, as local soccer products Kage Romanshyn Jr. and Darius Randell caused problems for the visitors and goalkeeper Oliver Kelly made his MLS NEXT Pro debut. The Twos return to the National Sports Center for their second home game in a row this Sunday to take on Ventury County FC. The Loons have faced VCFC twice—though we knew them as LA Galaxy II back then—and currently have a perfect 2-0-0 record against the team from the Sunshine State. Get your tickets today at and see if the Loons can improve their perfect record to 3-0-0. Can't make it to NSC? No problem; you can stream the game for FREE on to catch all of the action.
