Wilmington looking to remain unbeaten at Legion Stadium
Wilmington, NC – The Wilmington Hammerheads are facing off with the Rochester Rhinos at Legion Stadium on Thursday, July 12, at 7:30 p.m. for the second time this season. Currently, the Hammerheads are trailing two ranks behind the Rhinos in the league standings; totaling a difference of six points.
The Hammerheads and Rhinos met once already this season prior to their upcoming match. In June, the Hammerheads traveled north for back-to-back matches; Rochester on a Friday, followed by Harrisburg on Saturday. The Hammerheads took a 1-1 draw while in Rochester at Sahlen’s Stadium when Paul Nicholson evened the score in the 66th minute after Rochester’s Tyler Rosenlund’s goal at the 30-minute mark.
Many opportunities were lost while few were won the last time these two teams encountered one another, keeping a fairly equalized match. Since then the Hammerheads have gained many assets to their squad. The Hammerheads have extended forward Corey Hertzog’s loan from the NY Red Bulls and have signed Real Salt Lake’s Cody Arnoux and UNC-Charlotte’s Charles Rodriguez.
As the Rochester Rhinos make entry into Legion Stadium on Thursday, the Hammerheads will be looking to heavily defend their winning run to remain unbeaten on their home turf this season thus far.
