Rochester returns home after nightmare road trip

[USL PRO SCHEDULE: Week 7] The Rochester Rhinos play their home opener on Saturday when they welcome the Harrisburg City Islanders at at Sahlen’s Stadium. Winners of their first six games in 2012, the Rhinos are off to a 0-4-1 start. What gives?

The Rhinos have been conceding goals in bunches -- 15 in five games -- after giving up just 23 goals all season in 2012. The nightmarish road stand included back-to-back Saturday games at Orlando City (3-1 loss) and Richmond (4-1 loss) following Friday night matches that necessitated late-night bus trips.

Such wasn't the case, however, last week as the Rhinos fell at Harrisburg, 5-1, in their lone match of the weekend. Rochester was without Tyler Rosenlund and Georgios Kyriazis, who had been red carded at Richmond, and JC Banks, its 2012 MVP who is recovering from an ACL tear.

The Rhinos' lone goalscorer, defender Bilal Duckett, is one of four New England Revolution players on loan to the Rhinos. He was recalled for the Revs' MLS match at Portland on Thursday and started in place of the injured Andrew Farrell.

    I remember when the Rhinos would play Montreal to sold out stadiums, now they are in the Pro league aka Division 3 and Montreal is atop the MLS east...Rochester had so much potential as a great city for a top franchise and now its all gone sideways.
