NYC United got off to a late start and a goal down against Bronx Ale due to their short numbers. Both teams ended up playing short of eleven due to multiple injuries or earl departures. Bronx Ale’s Kat Murphy scored early in the first half and Stephanie Nava added a second goal for a 3-0 lead at the half.
Despite the fewer number of players on the field, both teams kept attacking. Bronx Ale’s defense, anchored by Elyse Hanley, was up to the challenge and thwarted United’s momentum allowing only a few long range shots. Tina Cressent scored the final goal in the second half after some nice passing up front. Bronx Ale wins with a 4-0 shutout.
