Still standing at the top of the standings with a 5-0-0 start to this season, NY swept a pair of league games in New England while dropping one in Lamar Hunt US Open Cup play. Ledula came in for the prodigal Cosmo, David Diosa at the half and the former Pioneer got the goal just just 4 minutes in. Junior Burgos woke everyone up as he rocked the frame of the goal with his go and won the crossbar challange.

This was for an already depleted defense, minus USL Defender of the Year, Aaron Long all game and TIm Parker for the last 59' of the game due to a red card.
