Your Breakers FC took on the San Diego Zest Sunday June 9th looking to bounce back from a tough loss two days prior. With playoff implications on the line it was a must win , but it would not be easy. The previous match between these two sides earlier in the season saw your Breakers win by a one goal margin which would prove to be the case again. 

In the first half your breakers took the lead early through the teams leading goal scorer Walmer Martinez. The Zest would counter twice and took a 2 - 1 lead into the half time break. With a lot at stake your Breakers knew they had to come out strong in the second half. After just five minutes forward Ettore Ballestracci tied the game with a sharp finish from inside the box. With five minutes left in the game and doubt creeping in substitute Joseph Bastian scored the game winning goal in the eighty fifth minute. 

All in all getting a crucial win on the road in Southern California could prove crucial later on in the USL 2 Western Division Playoff hunt.
