United Women’s Soccer has set its playoff schedule, which has the Long Island Rough Riders set to face the New England Mutiny.

Following its 3-1 win over Syracuse DA on July 6, Long Island (5W-5L-0D) will head north to face the Mutiny (8W-0L-2D) on Friday. Kickoff at Lusitano Stadium in Ludlow, Mass., is 7:30 p.m.

The Rough Riders closed out the season with its win over Syracuse, which gave Long Island the fourth seed in the East Conference. Christina Tesoriero and Grace Hawkins each found the back of the net and a Syracuse own goal provided the needed cushion for the Rough Riders.

A native of East Meadow, Tesoriero was also named to the UWS Team of the Week for her game-winning goal vs. Syracuse.
