Jester’s face Southern States SC in Gulf Coast Conference Semifinal

New Orleans, LA.  The New Orleans Jesters take on Southern States SC in the 2022 NPSL Gulf Coast Conference Semifinals Wednesday night in Hattiesburg, MS.  The game kicks off at 7:30 PM and is available live at www.elevensports.com

 

The Jesters secured the #3 seed in the Gulf Coast Conference with Saturday’s 3-1 win versus Florida Roots FC.  

 

Head Coach Kenny Farrell is looking forward to another trip to the NPSL post-season,

 

“This is what we work towards all year and I am tremendously proud of the players and the effort that they have given on behalf of the Jesters and the City of New Orleans over the past few months. 

 

We know SSSC have done well so far this season so we will give everything tomorrow night to get back to the Gulf Coast Championship game.”

 

Last year New Orleans defeated the Jacksonville Armada in the Semifinal round but were unable to play in the Championship game due to COVID-19 protocols after two positive tests in the squad; the Championship match would have been played versus Southern States SC.

 

The Jesters faced SSSC twice in the regular season losing 4-0 in Hattiesburg back on May 14 and then losing the second match of the series on June 25 in New Orleans in a close game that finished 3-2 in favor of Southern States.

 

SSSC enter the postseason as the #2 seed, their last match was a 4-1 home loss versus the Jacksonville Armada.
