ROCHESTER, NY- The Rochester Rhino continue to build as they welcome two new players to the roster for this Saturday’s game. Sofiane Tergou and Michele Guilavogui join the team on the attacking end as they take on Charlotte Independence this weekend at Rhinos Stadium.

Tergou, who started his soccer career in Bitche, France as a 2010 graduate of Lycee Teyssier led Lycee Teyssier to the France University Championship as the top scorer.
