The San Diego Loyal finish their last home game campaign to almost put an end to a successful regular season in front of locals. 

Over the weekend, the local team received fellow Western Conference club, New Mexico United, as San Diego wrapped up their home season journey as the second seed in the conference.  

Torero Stadium sold out in a very exciting match that ended up with six goals in total, a 3-3 draw, which was also Fan Appreciation Day in their final home match. 

The team's 3-3 result concluded their home season with a 60-point season and a 18W-9L-6D overall record, which is the best record in the club's history. They still have one more match to go on the road this week against Sacramento Republic FC on Saturday Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. 

Entering this final match, the club had already secured the second seed for the post-season, which provided an extra layer of security for the team's focus as they reached the end of their 2022 season. 

However, next Sunday, October 23 at 7 p.m. the real deal begins for San Diego where they will host their first-ever home playoff game at Torero Stadium 

The Loyal were down early in this match when New Mexico United scored at the start to take a 1-0 lead off a penalty kick. 

22 minutes later, San Diego tied the game with a Charlie Adams converted penalty to equalize the match, which is the fifth season goal for Adams this season. 

And just four minutes later, San Diego Loyal took the lead with a goal from Alejandro Guido through a header from the Chula Vista native for his fifth goal of the regular season, too. 

And five minutes before halftime, New Mexico's Amando Moreno equalized the game, before then giving the visitors the lead early in the second half at the 47th minutes for a 3-2 lead. 

However, for some inevitable drama later in the second half, San Diego's Thomas Amang tied the match at 3-3 in the 52nd minute.
