Academy update - U-18
D.C. United’s U-18 academy squad opened up the scoring early in a 3-0 defeat of the Baltimore Bays. The first goal came just 15 minutes into the contest after Abdi Yusuf made a strong individual effort that finished with a 20-yard blast to the far post. Yusuf again scored in the 59th minute to double the lead and Michael Seaton capped off the scoring in a dominant team performance that saw United best its local rivals 3-0 at Prince George’s Community College.
"This was a very strong team performances. I'm happy for Abdi Yusuf and Michael Seaton, as both guys worked very hard for the team throughout the match and each deserved their goal(s). The overall team discipline and commitment to defense was excellent and the clean sheet was well deserved. We're looking forward to a weekend off and then focusing our efforts on our match versus Potomac,” said Nolan Sheldon, head coach of D.C. United’s U-18 Academy team.
Both academy teams will be off this upcoming weekend and will play next on Sunday, October 28 against Potomac at Long Bridge Park in Arlington, Va.
