On the road again

FC Buffalo will board a bus early Saturday for the first two games of the longest road trip in their brief history.

Both Saturday’s and Sunday’s guests have their sights set on the Blitzers, whose 2-2-2 record has them sitting in fourth place, two points behind the Pocono Snow. FC Buffalo has three games-in-hand on the Snow.


Saturday finds the Blitzers in Shirk Stadium for their first ever match-up with FC Reading Revolution. The Revs have just two wins in seven games this season, but are paced by dangerous goal scorer Gibrilla Conde. Sunday has FC Buffalo ending its season series with the New Jersey Blaze. The Blitzers topped the Blaze, 2-0, on June 6, for the club’s first ever win.

The Blitzers will be without head coach Jim Hesch for the trip. Co-captain Matt Stuczynski will man the line-up card for both games. Hesch will be back behind the bench for a July 2 contest in Erie before FC Buffalo finally returns home for a July 3 date with TSD Maryland Red Devils.
