MUTINY MOVE ON TO EAST FINALS WITH 3-0 VICTORY
Jul 13, 2019  

The New England Mutiny moved one step closer to the United Women’s Soccer National Championship finals with a convincing 3-0 victory over the Long Island Rough Riders on Friday night. In what has been the by far the most incredible goal-scoring streak in the history of United Women’s Soccer, Mutiny forward Kate Howarth scored in her 11th consecutive game for the team.

The Mutiny captain netted her 19th goal of the season and what proved to be the eventual game-winner in the 17th minute. Shauny Alterisio (Danbury, CT/Central Connecticut State University) delivered the assist with a driven ball into the Long Island defense that Howarth received and shot off the turn  to put New England in the lead 1-0. The score remained 1-0 at halftime.

The Mutiny extended its lead shortly after halftime when Jessica Fernandes (Pawtucket, RI/Babson College) headed in a cross from Zoe Steck (Nutley, NJ/UCONN). The Babo forward made an interior run in front of two Rough Rider defenders and her goal sent the capacity crowd at Lusitano Stadium into a frenzy as the goal took the wind out of Long Island’s sails.

Shauny Alterisio capped the scoring in the 90’ with an aggressive run from her defensive position after Mariela Jacome’s hard work caused the reward for Alterisio.

Mutiny goalkeeper Catalina Perez made three saves for New England for the clean sheet.

The victory leaves the Mutiny one victory away from the National Championship round, however, to reach that goal the team must secure a victory on Sunday over the defending East champion Lancaster Inferno. Kickoff will be at 4:00pm at Lusitano Stadium.
