Aman & Beasley Score Goals In SeaWolves Win, Crossfire Beats Timbers U-23s
Edmonds, Wash. - After both missed the North Sound SeaWolves' loss Sunday to the Kitsap Pumas, current Huskies Abdul Aman and Quinton Beasley came back and had strong performances in North Sound's 3-1 victory against the Vancouver Whitecaps U-23.
Beasley (left; credit Dale Garvey) scored his first goal of the season off an assist from Aman in the first half at the 39-minute mark. After a long pass from Aman, Beasley beat the Vancouver keeper one-on-one for the game's first goal. It broke a 174-minute scoring drought for North Sound and gave them a lead for the first time since the season-opener on May 20.
In the second half, Aman added a spectacular left-footed goal from 30 yards out over the head of the keeper and into the right side of the net. It was Aman's team-high third goal of the season. He later added an assist on the team's third goal. Aman missed the previous match against the defending champs Kitsap Pumas with a red-card suspension and Beasley missed the game for personal reasons.
The SeaWolves (2-3) snapped a three-game losing streak while Vancouver (2-4-2) lost its second in a row.
Next up for the North Sound SeaWolves will be a match-up against Fraser Valley Mariners at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, June 8 at Edmonds Stadium. Then they will head to Tacoma to play the Seattle Sounders U-23s at Franklin Pierce Stadium on Sunday, June 10 at 2 p.m.
REDMOND, Wash. - The Washington Crossfire (4-1-1) handed the Portland Timbers U-23s (5-2-0) its second straight loss Wednesday, defeating them 2-1 at Redmond High School.

The Timbers' usual starting goalkeeper and Husky Spencer Richey missed his first match Wednesday. Andy Thoma and Nathan Sackeyfio started for the Crossfire and Alex Klein came in as a sub. Former Huskies Nick James and Daniel Gray also started for the Crossfire, where Gray had an assist in the game.
The Crossfire will visit the Sounders U-23s Friday, June 8 at Franklin Pierce Stadium at 7:30 p.m. before hosting Fraser Valley Mariners at 5 p.m. Sunday, June 10 at Redmond High School.
