The goal scored by New Jersey Copa FC was recorded in the 84th minute by Gabriel Addo. Despite losing this game, the team has not hung their heads and are ready for their next match. Head coach Fernando Barboto said, “We defended poorly in transition, despite creating many point blank opportunities to score within the first fifteen minutes of the game, and throughout. We will have to improve on both sides of the ball this week.”

Cedar Stars Rush opened their season against FC Motown STA on May 22, 2022. The match finished with a tie of 1-1.
