Wayne County United Soccer Club’s U17 Boys won the 1st Division League on Friday night to earn a promotion and a spot in the Premier Division.
Wayne County United hosted Wilson Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) on Friday night in the final game of the season.
Despite only needing a tie to clinch, WCUSC went for the win. They started the game off on the front foot, forcing the WYSA keeper to make multiple saves.
Although WCUSC dominated early in the 1st half, they fell behind when WYSA scored on an error. Not down very long, WCUSC’s Andrew Sherman scored two goals before the end of the half.
The second half was also dominated by Wayne County United, who played in control and got the third goal from Marcos Avila with six minutes left in the game to put it out of reach.
WCUSC would go on to win the game 3-1.
The majority of the WCUSC U17 team have come through the club’s youth academy program, which starts at U7. Their progressive development and bonding as a team over the years have now put WCUSC into the Premier Division.
