A record crowd of 8,466 filled Toyota Field Saturday night when San Antonio FC returned home for their first ever home league match against Swope Park.

Taking on a strong Swope Park Rangers team was a big step up from their season opener against a struggling Seattle Sounders 2, and despite a strong performance, San Antonio was made to settle for a point as the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
