Lancers Playoffs Update
(Rochester, NY) The NPSL Rochester Lancers traveled to Ann Arbor, Michigan on Tuesday to play AFC Ann Arbor. This was the Lancers First Playoff game in 42 years and it ended in a 0-0 tie after approximately 69 minutes of play. The game had two weather delays and due to the stadium having no lights there was no daylight left to play and the referees called the game.
The league decided that AFC Ann Arbor and the Rochester Lancers must finish the game at a neutral location to decide who moves on to the Regional Semi Finals on Friday in Detroit.
The Lancers are traveling today, Thursday July 18 to Erie, PA to meet AFC Ann Arbor at Gannon University to play the remaining minutes of the game tonight at 8:30pm EST.
If tonight’s game remains tied after 90 minutes, the teams will play two 10 minute over times and then PKs if needed. The winning team will then travel to Detroit immediately following the game to take on Cleveland SC in the Regional Semi Finals tomorrow, Friday July 19 @ 4:30pm.
With a win Thursday and Friday, the Lancers will clinch their spot in the Regional Finals on Sunday, July 21 @ 1:30pm in Detroit.
