After a three-win weekend in New Hampshire, the U15 and U17 Impact teams will be back at Centre Nutrilait this weekend to host the Metropolitan Oval Academy, at 10am and 12:30pm respectively. Games are open to the public. As for the U19 team, it will be back in action on November 4.
Seacoast United U15 1-6 Impact U15
Seacoast United U17 1-5 Impact U17
A good bounce-back win for the Academy teams who suffered losses against the Philadelphia Union the week before. They are now back to winning ways, solidifying their position at the top of the division.
The Met Oval U15 season is going well. The club is in the same division as the Impact and is currently in fifth, in front of NYCFC, but still out of the playoff picture with a 4-2-1 record. The team won its last game 3-2 against BW Gottschee and has one of the league’s best scorers, Massimo Murania Yankowitz, who scored nine goals in seven matches.
The U17 team is having a tougher start to the season, as it sits before last in the Northeast division with a 1-4-2 record. The only positive point is that its only win came in the last game, a 3-1 win against BW Gottschee.
