New England will play New Jersey Copa F.C. at West Springfield H.S. on July 16th
The New England Mutiny are in the midst of a four-game road trip as they take part in the race for the East Conference crown of United Women’s Soccer (UWS). When they return to western Massachusetts for their first home game in over a month on Saturday, July 16th, they will play at an old venue but with a new facility.
New England has officially announced a change of venue for their match against East leaders New Jersey Copa F.C. (5-1-1), as the Mutiny (4-2) will make a return to West Springfield High School. Kick-off will still be at 7:00 PM. It will be the first time New England will play at the new Clark Field facility, but not the first time they’ve played at West Side.
The last time New England played at West Springfield H.S. was during the 2008 season, when on Saturday, June 21st they defeated the now-defunct Adirondack Lynx by a 6-0 score. The Mutiny dominated their old Northeast Division rival from the start, as Erin Clark, Erin (O’Grady) Gatto and Jenny Maurer scored during a 15-minute stretch in the first half.
“We have always showcased the Mutiny in different communities around western Massachusetts and we are excited to be back in West Springfield,” said Mutiny team owner Joe Ferrara, Jr.
New England will play the third of their four-game road trip this Saturday, traveling to take on NJCFC at Mercer County Community College (4:30 PM kick-off). After a two-week break, the team’s last road game will be on Saturday, July 9th when they face the Long Island Rough Riders (2-2-1). The last two games of 2016 will be the re-scheduled match vs. Copa at West Side and the Saturday, July 23rd game vs. TSF Academy (1-2-1) at East Longmeadow H.S.
