The NPSL’s U-19 pilot continues this weekend with Port City Football Club facing off against
the New Orleans Jesters.
Initially scheduled to face AFC Mobile, Port City will be playing in their first game of the season
due to the opener being postponed.
General Manager Luke Berry is excited to see the team get game action, and will be keeping his
eye on a few players.
“Kieran Robins (attacking midfielder) is one of our overage players,” Berry said. “He played at
William Carey and currently at Delta State University. He is a very intelligent player with great
vision who is involved in most of our attacking play.”
On the other side of the ball, look out for center back Guilherme Avila.
“He’s a no-nonsense defender,” Berry said. “Helps the younger defenders around him by leading
by example. A natural leader and very capable player.”
The Jesters already have one game under their belt, a 1-1 draw against Southern States SC.
Mason Morise was the goal scorer, and New Orleans will be leaning on him again.
“He is one of the overage players on the team,” Jesters spokesman Andrew Bell said. “He has
played for the full NPSL team and for the University of Memphis. He’s leading by example.”
Defensively, the team was kept in the game by goalkeeper Jourdan Schumacher.
“He had a very good game last weekend against Southern States, who have a very good team,”
Bell said. “They were the home side, enjoyed the majority of the ball, and he made several good
saves during the match.”
The two sides will face off at Pearl River Community College this Sunday at 4:00 pm. You can
