will enter tomorrow’s contest hoping to get back on track after their two losses last weekend. The Stars opened their inaugural season with a 0-2 loss
away to FC Sonic on Friday, May 18th followed by another heartbreaking 3-4 loss
away to AC Crusaders on Sunday, May 20th...With those results, the Stars moved to a conference record of 0-2-0 and overall record of 11-7-3 since the 2011-2012 season started on August 1, 2011.
, on the other hand, have played a single pre-season game, losing 1-6
away to Greater Binghamton FC on May 6th. The Snow were expected to start their season with a trip away to Jersey City Eagles FC yesterday, but the match was re-scheduled for a later date.
Players to Watch
Midfielder Fatoma Turay
has been a revelation for the Stars this season...He came on as a substitute for the injured Jerome Pour in the first match and has since been the best player for the Stars in both games...His amazing runs and defense-splitting passes have been a joy to see...Turay was named as player of the match against AC Crusaders after scoring a wonderful goal.
Another notable mention for the Stars is the club's top scorer, forward Jerome Pour
, who missed last Sunday's match due to an ankle injury from the Stars' first game last Friday...Pour is back in the squad and he will be looking to add on to his goals tally for the Stars...Pour leads the Stars in goals, eight so far in 15 appearances.
Pocono Snow FC welcome back almost half of the squad that participated in last season's sixth placed finished in the Northeast-Keystone Conference.
