Game #10: Long Island Rough Riders (PDL) 0, Real Monarchs SLC (USL) 1
Real Monarchs celebrated a win in their Open Cup debut tonight as they defeated Long Island Rough Riders 1-0 to advance to the Third Round. The match was poised on a knife’s edge for most of the night, with both teams trading chances at St. Anthony’s High School but meeting strong resistance from Joseph Martin and Eric Osswald in the nets. The deadlock was finally broken in the 77th minute when Ricardo Velazco played a delightful one-two with Max Rauhofer before slotting home the eventual winner past Martin. Osswald and the Monarchs held on for the clean sheet and club history as they can now take their first Open Cup with them back to Salt Lake.
