Match Preview: Rebels vs. Buffalo Fenians (6/26)
The Albany Rebels will host the Buffalo Fenians on Saturday at Plumeri Sports Complex, a week after losing in Western New York. The match is scheduled to start at 12:30 p.m.
With a draw and a loss in the New York Cup so far, the Rebels need a win to have any real chance at the trophy and a spot in the Midwest Finals. Even with a win tomorrow, Albany would need to win against Syracuse and get some help.
"We're excited to play at home in front of our fans. It's been a long time coming," said goalkeeper Mark Adam. "I think everyone who played in Buffalo last weekend is eager for the rematch and to try and improve on the result."
