Seacoast United Picks Up Road Win Against South Central


CHICAGO (March 25, 2008) – Seacoast United U-15/16 picked up its second Development Academy win on Saturday (March 22), traveling to South Central and earning a 2-0 victory to keep themselves in the midst of a tightly contested Northeast Conference.

“It was one of the best games of our season since coming back from the Winter Showcase,” said Seacoast United head coach John Price. “We played well today. Every player did their individual jobs so it was a professionally played game from our standpoint.”

In a game fought mostly in the midfield, Seacoast’s Ryan Dunn stood out for his defense and decision making, and in the 30th minute he provided the 1-0 advantage after what looked to be a missed opportunity on a corner kick. South Central had cleared the ball away, but the right-footed midfielder fired a shot with his left that sailed into the upper corner.

The teams continued to battle, with both earning their respective chances. Price credits his forwards’ pace for creating a majority of their scoring opportunities, especially down the wings, which helped set up the second goal of the game, which came in the 70th minute. Josh Vlasich received the ball from 25 yards out, beat a pair of defenders and curled a shot from the left side of the box into the lower right corner, making the score 2-0.

The Seacoast defense, led by newly-converted right back Doug Crow, did the rest, shutting down any threats from South Central and keeping their shutout intact.

Seacoast continues its Northeast Conference campaign on March 29 and 30, hosting Albertson and B/W Gottschee, respectively. South Central, who fell to 3-3-1 on the season, travels to Met Oval and FC Westchester.
