Homegrown forward Michael Seaton scores first professional goal

As part of the landmark affiliation between D.C. United and the Richmond Kickers, homegrown star Michael Seaton has spent the past few months training with the Richmond-based USL side. Last night, in his first start for the Kickers, Seaton found himself on a breakaway late in the game. The 17 year old maintained composure on the play and slotted home his first professional goal.

Seaton's goal put the Kickers up 2-0 over Wilmington, the first goal coming from a second-half penalty kick. Andrew Dykstra and Conor Shanosky were also staples in the victory, as the keeper and defensive midfielder helped earn a shutout for the D.C. United affiliate.
