United Go Down The Shore To Division-Leading Nor’easters

55th meeting between Reading and Ocean City is on deck at 7:00 p.m. tonight

READING, PA (June 24, 2022) – Reading United travels to the Mid Atlantic Division-leading Ocean City Nor’easters for the 55th meeting between the two sides. Kickoff is at 7:00 p.m. at Carey Stadium, continuing one of the most storied rivalries in all of USL League Two.


Ocean City (7-0-1) has taken both meetings this season, riding early goals to road victories at Alvernia University on June 4 and 17 by 2-0 and 1-0 margins. The wins gave Ocean City a 24-22-8 lead in the overall series between the two clubs.


Reading (3-3-3) held the Nor’easters to a scoreless draw last year in Jersey - holding a high-powered Nor’easters offense to just two shots on frame.


Ocean City has continued its season opening run at the top of the Mid Atlantic Division with seven consecutive victories - most recently a 5-2 win over Real Central New Jersey at Carey Stadium. The Nor’easters ran off four straight goals in the first half, once again pouncing early against their fellow Garden State club.


Reading enters the contest off of their first loss against an opponent not named Ocean City. A 5-0 loss in West Chester on Tuesday night was finished off by a four-goal second half by WCU. United sit firmly in third place after hitting a rough patch in recent games, trailing Ocean City by ten points and second-place West Chester by seven.


United continues on the road for one more before returning home in July for a trio of Saturday dates. July 2, 9, and 16 will be filled with soccer action at Alvernia University with a 7:00 p.m. kickoff planned for each contest. Game day tickets for all remaining home dates are available for purchase at for just $7+fees or for $10 at the gate.
