With both teams needing wins to keep their playoff hopes alive, the Men’s team fell short while the Women’s team came through.
Despite relatively even play, the Rough Riders men’s team lost to AC Connecticut 4 – 2 today at Western Connecticut State University. The loss all but eliminates them from playoff contention.
The Rough Riders Women’s team faired better in their quest for a playoff spot. They beat local rivals New York Magic 2 – 0 with a goal from Francesca Venezia along with a Magic own goal today at Iona College. The win keeps the Rough Riders in the hunt for a coveted playoff spot.
