NPSL Week Two Northeast Review/Preview: May 23-26th

Northeast Division

Keystone Conference

GBFC's 2-2 draw with Electric City out them at the top of the table- one point ahead of Junior Lone Star (who play on Wednesday at Pocono Snow). FC Lehigh Valley won their season opener at last place Hershey and go to Electric City as part of the Shock's two-game home stand this week. Hershey visits them on Friday.

Clarkstown is fifth after their win hosting Pocono and they get the weekend off.

Here's Pocono's first goal of the year in their win against Electric City

Mid-Atlantic Conference

DC United, Chesterfield United, and Virginia Beach City FC are all with three points. DCU hosts VBC and Chesterfield and RVA FC have the weekend off. The only other match-up involves ASA Charge hosting Legacy 76 in two of the three teams who didn't get points in their first games of the year.

North Atlantic Conference

Looks like the early separation is with NY Red Bulls U-23's and the Brooklyn Italians...

The Red Bulls win over Rhode Island makes them 3-for-3 with a goal difference of +13. They host the Seacoast United Phantoms who haven't played in two weeks. The Italians have yet another week off to see if there will be anyone closing from behind and if the Red Bulls will keep their distance.

Greater Lowell United host Rhode Island and will try and move up in the standings after losing twice to Red Bulls already this season- to the tune of 11-1. Here's GLUFC's recap of the first loss...

And here's Dallas Donovan's strike for the Reds against the Italians
((HT: RIReds))

With postgame from Donovan as well in his Reds debut...

New York Athletic Club gets their first game under their belt this weekend against the Seacoast United Mariners
