Aman Scores Fourth Goal of Season; Sounders U-23s Beat Crossfire
EDMONDS, Wash. - Abdul Aman scored in the second minute and the North Sound SeaWolves defeated the Fraser Valley Mariners FC 1-0 Friday at Edmonds Stadium. It was the second win in a row for the SeaWolves, who evened their record at 3-3 and moved into a tie for fifth place in the Northwest Division with the Victoria Highlanders FC.
Washington forward Aman scored his fourth goal of the season before some in the crowd even realized what was happening. He took an outlet pass on the left side and raced toward the goal, beating Fraser Valley keeper Mark Village to the near side. He nearly scored five other times only to have Village make a save.
Quinton Beasley also started for the SeaWolves and had three shots in the game.
The SeaWolves will try to make it three wins in a row when they visit Franklin Pierce High School for a match against the Sounders FC U-23 Sunday, June 10 at 2:00 p.m.
TACOMA, Wash. - The Sounders U-23 kicked off their weekend double header with a strong showing as they took down the Washington Crossfire 2-0 Friday night at Franklin Pierce High School.
Great play by the Sounders U-23 defense, which included Huskies Chris Brundage and Taylor Peay, held the Crossfire without a shot on goal until midway through the second half. Sean Okoli (Wake Forest) and Fernando Monge (UCLA) had the goals for the Sounders.
Huskies Ben Fisk, Andy Thoma, and Nathan Sackeyfio started for the Crossfire. Sackeyfio had a good chance at goal in the 65th minute, but his shot deflected out of the goal for a corner. The Crossfire were able to put a lot of balls into the box in stoppage time, including a free kick given just outside the box, but weren't able to get a goal thanks to a strong effort from the Sounders defense.
The win put the Sounders U-23 in a momentary three-way tie for first place in the PDL Northwest Division standings. They join the Kitsap Pumas and the Portland Timbers U-23 at the top with 15 points each.
The Sounders U-23 return to Franklin Pierce High School on Sunday against the SeaWolves at 2 p.m. Tickets for the match are available at SoundersU23.com
The Crossfire will travel to Redmond High School to play against Fraser Valley Mariners FC at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday.
