Media Conference Call with Steel FC Head Coach Brendan Burke: May 17

By Bethlehem Steel FC Communications, 05/17/17, 10:45AM EDT


After picking up the club's third victory of the season on Saturday, Bethlehem Steel FC head coach Brendan Burke conducted his weekly media conference call with media Wednesday morning.

Steel FC enters the week after defeating Toronto FC II, 1-0, in a match that produced the team's first road win and goalkeeper Jake McGuire's third clean sheet of the season. McGuire's seven-save performance established a career-high for the 22-year-old and earned him a spot on the USL's Team of the Week.

Offensively, Cory Burke notched his first goal of the season after converting a penalty kick in the 8th minute that proved the game winner. Burke is now tied with teammate Seku Conneh, Philadelphia Union midfielder Derrick Jones and former Steel FC defender Ryan Richter for the club's all-time goals leader with five.

Steel FC is currently in the midst of preparing its third matchup of the season against FC Cincinnati. Bethlehem is seeking its first season sweep of an opponent after knocking off the Ohio club by a 2-0 margin on April 9, and 1-0 on April 29. The Saturday, May 20, kick off from Nippert Stadium is scheduled for 7 p.m.
