Lights FC outlook: This is the Lights’ only home match in April. They are one of four USL teams that haven’t allowed a goal at home this season. Kevin Garcia-Lopez, Thomas Olsen, Gabe Robinson and Javan Torre are the only Lights who have played every minute of all five games.

San Antonio FC outlook: Tacoma will be playing its second match in four days. Las Vegas native Danny Leyva, a 15-year-old midfielder, has started four of the Defiance’s six games. Last September, he became the youngest player in team history to start a USL match and the second youngest in league history.
