Republic notebook: Barrera fitting in, Lopez on the brink of assist record

After playing the full 90 minutes in Wednesday’s 1-1 draw against Real Monarchs SLC, it’s starting to look like Sacramento Republic FC midfielder Danny Barrera — a midseason signing — could end up being the difference-maker in a deep postseason run. Last year, the Republic bolstered their squad with the midseason addition of James Kiffe, who locked […]

18-year-old wins it for the Republic

SACRAMENTO – It was a long time coming for Gabe Gissie. Eighteen months and 11 games into his professional soccer career, the 18-year-old substitute went on a slaloming run in the 80th minute, cut to the left of his defender and placed the ball in the lower left corner for his first-ever professional goal.
