Philly Soccer Show: Nor’Easters Prepare For US Open Cup
By Greg Orlandini
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — We switch gears a little bit this week on the KYW Philly Soccer Show and cast our gaze to the Jersey Shore. KYW‘s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch talk with Tim Oswald, the head coach of the Ocean City Nor’Easters of the USL-PDL. The team is set to begin their US Open Cup campaign Wednesday (tomorrow) at home against New York Greek America Atlas.
Last year, the Nor’Easters had a strong run in the cup with a victory at home against Pittsburgh Riverhounds of USL-PRO and a gutty loss against the Union at PPL Park. Oswald is a busy guy, as he is also the head coach of the Division III Rutgers Camden men’s team, where he earned honors as D-III coach of the year.
Then, Kevin Kinkead of CBS 3 and Soccerly.com joins the discussion. It is going from bad to worse for the Philadelphia Union. They failed to score again in their 1-0 loss to DC United last Saturday at home. And, things don’t get any easier as they face Sporting KC on the road Wednesday (tomorrow) and a suddenly very hot New England Revolution at home, this Saturday.
