Maryland’s oldest competition got kicked off this past Sunday with 102nd version of the Rowland Cup. We have eight teams fighting for Maryland’s open title that sends the winner to the Region I qualifiers of the Werner Fricker Cup.

In a Group A encounter between Washington Premier sides, Aegean Hawks FC edged Washington Elite FC 1:0. Group B saw Yinz United trounce Finito FC 7:2 while Izee Auto Body FC were one shot better in a 4:3 goalfest against Charm City FC. Next Sunday will feature interleague face offs with Group A leaders Christos and the Hawks meeting at Howard High School. Washington Elite and NLS Graduates will play prior. At Troy Park we have Izee against Finito followed by Charm City versus Yinz.
The two Catonsville FC sides finished another week with double victories with Blue in command of the Group B standings after a 2:0 shutout of DC Flames. Das Bier Haus introduced themselves into the competition snipping Coachem 2:1. The two teams lie in second with 3 points, Bier Haus with a match in hand.
