Hartford Athletic

Hartford Athletic were back on the pitch Tuesday evening. The team is taking part in the US Open Cup.

It’s America’s oldest soccer tournament, which includes all levels of American soccer. USL, MLS, you name it. 

There was a good crowd at the University of Hartford.

Harry Swartz was alone in front, he gives Hartford a 1-0 lead.

Jimmy Nielson’s team is starting to figure some things out.

On the free kick, Mads Jorgensen shoots it at the near post and it goes in, what a goal!

Athletic wins 2-1. It’s the first official victory in team history!
