NYRB II Rewriting Past Road Problems

In the past two seasons, NYRB II have accumulated a 5-13-15 road record. This season the club has already won more road games than they did the last two years combined.

NYRB II have posted a 6-2-3 away record, which included two road wins last week over Nashville SC and Swope Park Rangers.

“Meaningful games on the road are difficult and to come away with two wins is impressive,” head coach John Wolyniec said.

The club still has six more road games left, including a tough trip to take on Indy Eleven on September 4.

“Obviously, we have a bunch of road games coming up, so it was kind of good to get those started with six points,” goalkeeper Evan Louro said.

NYRB II have posted 25 goals on the road, including 12 in their last three matches. The club has performed well on the road the last couple weeks and will need to be on top of their game, when they travel to Indy Eleven.

“We know they are a good team, like you said it was a tough game when they came here,” Louro said. “They’re a good team and are pretty close to us in the standings so this is like a big six pointer for sure.”

The two-win week was big for NYRB II and they will look to carry that momentum into a big match on September 4.

“We need to find ways to keep the momentum we have built as we have some extra time before our next game,” Wolyniec said.

NYRB II will return home on Friday, September 13 for their annual Open House match against Charlotte Independence, kick-off is set for 7 p.m. ET.
