Mass United will be taking to the road again this weekend. And again the trip will be taking them to New Jersey and New York, but this time the opponents are different. On Saturday, June 18th at 6pm the Riders will be taking on Morris County in a rematch of this past weekend’s game in which Morris County came back from a 2-0 halftime deficit to draw United at Manning Field in Lynn, MA.
The second half of the weekend doubleheader takes them to Pelham Manor, NY for a date with New York Athletic Club at 2pm. The Riders and NYAC met earlier this season in Lynn, with United taking a 2-0 victory. NYAC is sure to be primed for the rematch, especially considering that they’ve had 5 whole weeks to think about it. NYAC’s only other game played so far this season was a scoreless draw against Seacoast United. A game against the New York Red Bulls had to be rescheduled.
For United, which sits precariously atop the conference standings, this is a pivotal weekend. With only 2 games remaining after the weekend, the Riders need to build up some wiggle room for themselves or face the possibility of having to watch as other teams build up points and pass them by.
