The first place Puerto Rico Islanders host the Tampa Bay Rowdies this Saturday at the Bayamón Soccer Complex. This will be the first of a two game home stand before the team travels to Trinidad and Tobago to defend their CFU Championship. Kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m.
“We'll back to home action this weekend and I’m sure the boys can’t wait to put last weekend’s result behind them. They have knuckled down to a hard week’s training though actions speak louder than words. We received some bad news late in the week that we lost Jaime Cunningham to a season ending injury. The players took it upon themselves to dedicate the rest of the season to Jamie. TODOS SOMOS UNO JAMIE.”
