PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Despite their home successes, Kingston Stockade FC are still searching for full glory away from Dietz Stadium.

Playing in front of some spirited home fans (see flare photo above), Stockade FC lost on the road to Rhode Island Reds, 2-1, on Friday night.

After an evenly balanced first half, Rhode Island went up 2-0 in the second half, with goals in the 55th and 74th minute.

Stockade FC found some fightback late in the match, however, when Dylan Williams drove home his first goal of the season in the 88th minute. Based on his impressive body of work over the course of the season, the goal was well deserved for the skillful midfielder.

Williams' goal came off an assist from Michael Creswick, who was recently named NPSL Player of the Week.

The loss drops Stockade to 3-1-2 (wins-draws-losses) on the season. All three wins have come at home, while the club remains winless away from Kingston.

Stockade's next match is Sunday, June 5 at home against Boston City FC at 5 p.m. ET.

Kingston Stockade FC Starting 11: Skonieczny; Gatti, Barrett, Lis-Simmons, Steigerwald; Koziol; Anasta, Williams, vonEgypt; Phillips, Creswick
