Med City FC Wins Rochester City Cup

by on 28 June 2019

Rochester’s two men’s soccer clubs faced off against each other in the inaugural Rochester City Cup with Med City FC beating Rochester Football Club (RFC) 3-1 on Friday night.

The first half was marked with high-flying tackles evident of a cup final.

Rochester Football Club was making hard tackles, and Med City was jarred and perhaps a bit lackadaisical.

RFC took a goal from a breakaway on the right side, slightly against the run-of-play in the first half. A Med City penalty tied it up, though there was questions of whether the player went down too easily.

The second half was less fruitful for RFC as they went a man down in the 70th minute. The Medics found two goals to take home the cup and bragging rights. The winning goal was a beautiful strike from Jordan Lennon. The Medic one-touched the ball with the side of his foot, watching it curl around the goalkeeper and just inside the far post. Cue rapturous celebrations.

It was a proper cup match for two sides that already have a bit of a rivalry. The Medics experience saw them manage the game much better and find a winner and a cushion late on.

The biggest point to take away is that Rochester has three amateur sides (including Rochester United FC) filled with quality players delivering exciting soccer this summer.
