After wrapping up a successful summer season in which the club went undefeated in the regular season and reached the UPSL national round of 16, the Davis Legacy men’s soccer team is back in action starting this Saturday when it hosts the Elk Grove Blues at 5:00 p.m. on the stadium field.

The match signals the start of the fall season for the defending Wild West Conference champions, who will be involved in two competitions over the next few months — qualifying for the 2022 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup begins in September.

Led by head coach Mark Torguson, Legacy are hoping to build on a season that saw them go 10-0-0, finish second out of 206 teams in goals scoring, and become the only team in the nation to win every single one of their regular season matches.

“We have a young squad, a lot of the guys we had in the spring and summer are now back off at college,” Torguson said. “We have a new crop of young players and look forward to continuing our success.”

For Torguson, Saturday will offer a good opportunity to figure out which players to rely on for the 92-team Open Cup qualifying round that Legacy are hoping to come through and become the first team from Davis to participate in the tournament proper.

“The Open Cup is always tricky,” Torguson said. “It’s one game knockout rounds so hopefully we can play well in each qualifying round and make it as far as possible.”
