On a hot Sunday afternoon in Rochester NY, RCB took on Greater Binghamton FC, in a crucial late season game that they needed to stay atop the UPSL WNY Division. Binghamton came out swinging, scoring 2 minutes into the game to take a 1-0 lead. The Boom tied it up 15 minutes later as Witman Hernandez scored his 1st of the game, off an beautiful through ball from Paulin Kolodja. The game would go into the half tied 1-1, with both teams rehydrating for what would be an eventful 2nd half.

The Boom would strike again in the 52nd minute with some nice hold up play by Peter Di Lorenzo, passing the ball back to Taner Bay who slotted it in for a 2-1 Boom lead. Binghamton would not go down without a fight, and tied the game at 2-2 just 5 minutes later. The following 10 minutes would become the Witman Hernandez show, as he would score 3 goals in a 10 minute span to put the game away at 5-2. Roc City has 1 game left at Krajisnik FC this Friday. They remain in 1st place at 9-2-0, and a win on Friday will clinch their 2nd consecutive WNY Division Title. The Boom would then move onto the Northeast Conference playoffs.
