Rough Riders at NJ Copa FC rescheduled
May 2018

The Long Island Rough Riders women’s match against New Jersey Copa FC that was postponed May 12 due to inclement weather has been rescheduled for 8 p.m. June 27 at Mercer County Community College.

The Rough Riders open their 2018 United Women’s Soccer campaign May 19 against Western NY Flash. Kickoff is 5 p.m. from Michael J. Tully Park in North Hempstead, N.Y.

Lead by first-year head coach Karim Diallo, Long Island last met NJ Copa in the 2017 Eastern Conference Final. The Rough Riders won 5-1, handing Copa its only home defeat over the past two seasons.

The Rough Riders went 8-2-2 last season, advancing to the UWS National Championship Semifinal, losing to eventual league champion Grand Rapids FC on penalty kicks.
