Bethesda-Olney U-15/16s take over Development Academy playoff spot with wins over FC DELCO, Baltimore Bays

This weekend in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy Atlantic Division, Richmond United and D.C. United faced off on a club-wide basis, and Bethesda-Olney teams took advantage of favorable match-ups to gain valuable ground in the playoff chase. The Olney U-15/16 and U-17/18 sides combined to go 4-0-0 against Continental FC DELCO and Baltimore Bays, as the U-15/16s took over a playoff spot and the U-17/18s pulled within fractions of a point of taking over a spot as well.

In the club competition between Richmond United and D.C. United, the teams split down the middle going 1-1-1. Richmond United took the U-13/14 match 1-0 on a goal by Miles Peay and a team effort defensively to earn the clean sheet.

[player_box id=25033 leftright=right]Brandon Perdue netted an 80th minute equalizer to help Richmond pick up a point in the U-15/16 age group with a 1-1 draw, after a 15th minute goal by Folasanmi Adetola appeared to be all D.C. would need to win the match. The goal was Perdue’s 16th of the season for Richmond United, tied for the eighth-most in the Eastern Conference.

[player_box id=43440 leftright=right]Owen MarshallJean-Christophe Koffi and Eryk Williamson each found the net for D.C. United U-17/18 in a 3-2 win over Richmond United, which received goals from William Baxter and Travis Cooke. Williamson, fresh off U.S. U-18 Men’s National Team camp in Bosnia, netted his 19th goal in just his 16th match of the season. His goal total is the second-highest in the Eastern Conference and his 1.19 goals per game is the second-highest scoring rate in the entire Development Academy, only behind Vancouver Whitecaps FC’s Marco Bustos with 1.33.

[player_box id=47455 leftright=right]Bethesda-Olney’s U-15/16 side leapfrogged D.C. United to take over possession of the No. 9 wild card spot with a 2-0 win over [player_box id=49927 leftright=right]Continental FC DELCO on Saturday and a 4-1 win over Baltimore Bays on Sunday. Matthew Di Rosa scored his team-leading ninth and 10th goals of the season with one in each game, Elijah Amo netted his seventh, Jordan Dove tallied his third and Eric Matzelevic had a brace on Sunday to raise his total to five. Franco Savastano and the back line worked hard to concede just one goal in the two matches.

[player_box id=43477 leftright=right]The Bethesda-Olney U-17/18s remain on the heels of divisional foe Philadelphia Union and several others for a wild card spot and are in good position going forward after a pair of one-goal victories this weekend. Olney beat Continental FC DELCO 2-1 on Saturday, with a first half brace [player_box id=47453 leftright=right]from Ibrahima Kouyate proving to be enough offensively. Cody Wax pulled DELCO within one early in the second half, but the Olney defense held strong to earn the win. The goals were Kouyate’s team-leading 11th and 12th on the season.

[player_box id=43217 leftright=right]Goalkeeper Clay Thomas picked up the win on Saturday and Alex Hughes earned a clean sheet in Sunday’s 1-0 win over Baltimore Bays. Wielfried Zouantcha was among the top performers defensively, playing the full 90 minutes in both matches. Samson Sergi‘s 59th minute strike, his eighth of the season, was the only goal of the match on Sunday.
