Riptide Re-Sign Forward Reilly O’Connor

Uniondale, NY (May 3rd, 2023) – The New York Riptide announced today that the team has re-signed left-handed forward Reilly O’Connor to a one-year contract.

The 29-year-old was originally acquired by the Riptide in a deal with the Albany FireWolves last off-season. O’Connor appeared in 17 of 18 games for New York during the 2022-23 season, scoring 20 goals and adding 45 assists for 65 points, and ranking third in team scoring behind Jeff Teat, and Connor Kearnan respectively. O’Connor assumed alternate captain duties five games into the Riptide season.

“(The Riptide) have got the core pieces. Now it’s small improvements and putting it all together,” said O’Connor. “I’m really excited for the future.”

“Reilly’s got a great lacrosse IQ and his attitude is fantastic. He brings a lot of positivity to the room, and a balance. Not too high, not too low,” said Riptide Head Coach Dan Ladouceur. “I can always get that out of Reilly.”
