The Long Island Rough Riders women’s team is pleased to announce the additions of Sage Dieterle and Brianna Doran for the upcoming 2019 United Women’s Soccer season.
Dieterle, a graduate of Adelphi University, played in 28 games with 16 starts for the Panthers from 2015-17. The forward scored two goals and added an assist in 12 games during her senior season.
“Sage is a hard working and tenacious player who I believe will add to our overall team depth,” Rough Riders head coach Karim Diallo said. “She joined us for a couple of training sessions toward the end of last season and she was a joy to have around.”
Doran is a versatile defender/midfielder from Hofstra University. She had 25 appearances with 11 starts for the Pride but missed the 2018 campaign due to an injury.
“It might take Brianna a little time to get into a rhythm but I have no doubt in my mind her work rate will help her catch up because she is dedicated to end her collegiate career on a high note,” Diallo said.
The Rough Riders open their 2019 UWS campaign against the Connecticut Fusion on Saturday, May 11. Kickoff is 5:30 p.m. from Hofstra University Soccer Stadium.
