Reno 1868 FC drops preseason friendly to San Diego Loyal SC

Reno 1868 FC fell 4-2 to San Diego Loyal SC today, despite a pair of goals from forward Corey Hertzog. Reno came back after trailing 3-0 in the first half, but could not complete the comeback in the preseason finale.

After trailing 3-0 from San Diego goals in the 7th, 24th and 30th minutes, Hertzog banged in a goal from the edge of the box. Coming in the 44th minute, the strike brought the score to 3-1 at the end of the first half.

Less than five minutes into the second half, Hertzog would convert a penalty to make it 3-2. Reno would possess the ball and create chances, but allowed a fourth goal in the 75th minute to make it 4-2.

The regular season kicks off next week, with a Friday road game against Tacoma Defiance. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m., and the game will be streamed on ESPN+. Reno plays at Greater Nevada Field again on March 14 for the regular season home opener against OKC Energy FC at 6:15 p.m. PT.
