Boom Victorious in Home Opener, Top Lancers 1-0

Published Apr 27, 2022

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, Rochester's 2 UPSL Premier Division teams met in the first derby of the year at Eastridge High School.

The Boom came out strong, hitting the post after 3 minutes when a shot from George Amoh just missing the goal, and once again 15 minutes later with Peter DiLorenzo's effort hitting the woodwork. 

Roc City controlled possession with the Lancers creating few chances, but they stuck around and almost had a goal in the 56th minute, with Anthony Rozzano clearing the ball of the line with his chest.

The Boom would finally break through when Austin Gerber was taken down in the box, drawing a penalty kick. He would step up to the spot and have his initial effort saved, but was able to put in the rebound to put Roc City up 1-0. 

Roc City Boom would hit the post 2 more times, and would hold on for the 1-0 win.

The Boom move to 2-0 and are on top of the table, with the Lancers dropping to 1-1.
