The Republic win their first ever playoff match, eventually running away with a 4-1 thrashing that was in doubt early just because Sacramento managed to hit the post about three times. Wilmington equalized through a dubious penalty before the red-n-whites turned it up and poured it on. Good times at Bonney Field.
With #1 seed (and MLS-bound) Orlando City losing to the #8 seed earlier, Sacramento is the highest seed of the four left in the USL Pro playoffs. Home field advantage!
