USL PRO: Sundly Starts for Rhinos vs. Fire Reserves

New England Revolution midfielder Alec Sundly received his first of the season for the Rochester Rhinos in their 2-0 win over the Chicago Fire Reserves at Toyota Park on Monday.

Sundly, who started the game on the right side of the midfielder, went 86 minutes before he was spelled by Mike Garzi. The 2014 second-round pick handled some of the Rhinos’ set piece duties during the mid-day match. He also received a 44th minute caution.

Through the Rochester’s first three games, Sundly has received a cumulative 101 minutes over two games. He did not see action in the club’s season opener.

Fellow Revolution loanee Jossimar Sanchez received his first USL PRO minutes when he came on in the 86th minute for J.C. Banks, who scored the Rhinos’ second goal in the 81st minute.

Meanwhile, the Revolution’s remaining loan player – goalkeeper Luis Soffner – served as the backup keeper as John McCarthy got the start between the sticks for the Rhinos.

After spending their first three on the road, the Rhinos open the home portion of their schedule on Sunday when they host the Charleston Battery at Sahlen’s Stadium. Kickoff is set for 4:00pm.
