After three straight road games to begin the 2019 season, the Ocean City Nor'easters will play their first home game in front of their fans at Carey Stadium ("The Beach House") on Saturday, June 1. The Nor'easters will host Evergreen FC in Ocean City's 23rd home opener which is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m.

The Nor'easters enter Saturday's game riding a three-game winning streak in home openers.

All tickets are $10 each and are available at the Carey Stadium box office.

Prior to the game, the Nor'easters are proud to welcome 14-year-old Olivia Currier back to the Beach House to sing the national anthem. (Watch video below) Currier, who will be attending the Philadelphia Creative and Performing Arts High School in the fall where she will major in musical theater, spends her summers in Longport, NJ. Currier is back for her second full season as the Nor'easters main national anthem singer. The talented teen has sang the national anthem for dozens of professional teams including the Philadelphia Eagles (NFL), the Carolina Hurricanes (NHL), the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics of the NBA and the Philadelphia Union (MLS). 

The Nor'easters enter the game 1-1-1 in USL League Two after suffering their first loss of the season on the road against Lehigh Valley United last Wednesday. In that game, Deri Corfe (Wright State / Chester, England) was kept off the scoresheet, snapping his five-game point streak. Corfe leads the team in scoring with two goals and one assist in three games.

Evergreen FC will enter Saturday's home opener seeking their first win of the 2019 season. The Hammers are 0-3-1, with a road loss to the New York Red Bulls Under-23s, and home losses to FA Euro New York and Lehigh Valley United. Their lone point of the season came on May 19 when they finished in a 1-1 draw with expansion side Cedar Stars Rush.

The Nor'easters have been playing against Evergreen FC since their days as the Northern Virginia Royals. The Nor'easters first met them (as the Royals) in 2004, and despite the Royals being a pro team, Ocean City defeated them, 3-1. From that day, the Nor'easters began their all-time unbeaten streak against Evergreen FC which is currently at 14 games (13-0-1). Last year, the Nor'easters swept the two-game season series with a pair of shutouts to extend that streak.
