Sunday’s match will be the first encounter between Rochester Rhinos and Bethlehem Steel FC. The two teams will meet again on Sunday, July 24 at Steel FC’s home at Lehigh University’s Goodman Stadium.

Steel FC enter the match after suffering a 3-1 loss to the City Islanders on Sunday, May 22 concluding a five game unbeaten streak. Steel FC now have an overall record of 3-3-3 with a 1-2-1 record on the road and are looking to find their first win as a visitor since their inaugural game against FC Montreal on March 25.
