(Central New Jersey) Saturday, June 15, 2024—Real Central NJ (RCNJ) won their third match of the season at Moravian University’s Makuvek Field at the tail end of a back-to-back against Lehigh Valley United Rush (LVU) Saturday night. Following a one-goal first half, RCNJ busted the game open with three more goals in the second. 

"The guys put together a complete performance today," said Men's Sporting Director Ira Jersey. "Every player did their job defending well, pressing at the right times, and disorganizing the opponent. It was a well-deserved win."
