(Rochester, NY) The Rochester Lancers of the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) are proud to announce two more top players to their 2019/2020 roster, Christian Esposito and Matt D’Amico. Per league and team policies, no further terms of the agreement were disclosed.
“I am excited to sign Esposito as he brings some MASL experience and has been in camp with Utica in years past. He is quick on his feet and is looking to make his mark with the Lancers.” said Doug Miller, Head Coach. “D’Amico is another local product who played at Geneseo College. He brings speed, grit, hard work and will make an impact immediately. I am looking forward to educating him about the indoor game as he has many of the tools to be successful in this craft.”
