MUTINY WINS HOME OPENER 4-2
May 20, 2019  

In front of a capacity crowd at Lusitano Stadium, the New England Mutiny scored 3 goals in the first 30 minutes en route to a 4-2 victory over the Long Island Rough Riders on Saturday night. Breukelen Woodard (Rutland, VT) started the scoring after just 16 minutes as the Mutiny seemed energized by the electric atmosphere in the stadium provided by the sellout crowd. Six minutes later captain Kate Howarth (Grand Blanc, MI) notched her 52nd career goal when she took a feed from Olivia White (Pittsford, VT) and rocketed a shot that pinged off the inside of the left post and into the net past Long Island goalkeeper Alana Olivieri. Howarth added to her all-time franchise scoring lead when she capitalized on an error by the Long Island backline to make it 3-0. Long Island pulled a goal back in the 37’ with a blast from Grace Hawkins just outside the area.

With the score 3-1 at halftime, the Mutiny came out of the locker room looking to protect the 3-1 lead for the remainder of the match. However, the AAA-sponsored club would get their insurance tonight from Howarth, whose hat trick made it 4-1. Hatfield native Carrie Ellis crossed a ball from the right flank and the opportunistic forward flicked the ball with her head and into goal. The Mutiny re-gifted one of their goals as an error in their backline led to a Rough Rider goal in the 74’. The magical night ended with the final score of 4-2 in favor of the Mutiny. Mutiny goalkeeper Kelsey Kohler made 6 saves for the hometown squad. Scallywags

The Mutiny would like to give special thanks to the Western United Pioneers for holding its club picnic around the match and to the Mutiny supporters group, the Scallywags, for adding to the exciting and energetic atmosphere of the evening with Springfield Conservatory of the Arts pep band playing, singing and chanting throughout the match. Kudos are in order to senior Blessyd Cotto for a powerful rendition of the National Anthem. Thanks also go to current and former New England Mutiny players for honoring the team’s 20th season with a heartfelt pre-game ceremony and the Yoga Shop for its mental and physical preparation of the the team prior to the match.

"It was a special night celebrating our 20th season home opener at our new location at Lusitano in front of a fantastic crowd and recognizing Joe Ferrara and his commitment to women's soccer and his team. We battlde a resilient Long Island team and we are very happy to come away with the win on such a big night," stated Mutiny Head Coach Jeb Booth.
