READING, PA (July 16, 2022) – Reading United finishes off its 2022 campaign against Lehigh Valley United, officially putting a close to a bounceback year for the club. A 7:00 p.m. kickoff awaits at Alvernia University for both sides.
Reading (4-4-5, 17 points) would see a five-point improvement over its 2021 season with a victory over LVU. Reading has traditionally had success against its neighbors to the north - picking up a 3-2 win in the season finale last year, and going 1-0-1 against LVU in 2022. After LVU stole a point at the death in a 1-1 tie in the season opener, Reading overcame a sleepy first half to explode for a 4-1 win at home. Isak Sedin paved the way for the home side, scoring a goal and adding an assist in the victory.
United look to bounce back after a 2-1 loss to Real Central New Jersey last Saturday evening. Despite outshooting the visitors 15-9 in the contest, a 69th minute goal made all the difference - launching RCNJ into third place in the Mid Atlantic Division.
Lehigh Valley (1-11-1, 4 points) slumps in with five straight losses, and just three points to their credit after the season-opening draw against Reading. LVU’s latest setback was a 4-1 thumping by Real Central New Jersey. Lehigh has shown to be stronger as the year has gone on, comparatively speaking - scoring 12 of its 19 goals in the past six games after finding twine just seven times in as many games to start the season.
