Stephen Roche’s three goals led the Long Island Rough Riders to a dominant win over the F.A. Euro New York on Tuesday evening at Aviator Sports Center. The Rough Riders moved up to 2nd place in the Mid Atlantic Division and have dramatically improved their chances to make the 2013 USL PDL playoffs.
In a one-sided game, the Long Island Rough Riders recorded their second consecutive win and solidified their good position in the Mid Atlantic Division. Goals by Tyler Botte, Dominick Sarle (2) and Stephen Roche gave the Rough Riders the advantage over the Flames who remain in last place in the division.
The Long Island Rough Riders seized their last chance to stay in the hunt for a playoff spot with a 1-0 win over the Washington Spirit Reserves. In a technically strong, high-paced game, a Grace Hawkins goal at 78 minutes decided the match against the Reserves who looked like the stronger side for the majority of the game.
The match proved to be the expected high-class meeting between two strong sides. Early in the game, both teams impressed the audience with quick passing and battled for control over the midfield. Tiffany Brown’s attempt at 16 minutes started a 30-minute attacking phase for the Reserves. Her header at 35 minutes still missed the goal but three minutes later, Rough Riders goalkeeper Diana Poulin saw some work coming her way. Brown’s shot from the top of the box was an easy catch for Poulin. When Molly Menchel aimed for the left upper 90, the Rough Riders goalie had to show all her skills to tip the ball over the crossbar.
