Philadelphians Abroad

Philadelphians Abroad: Hernandez and McLaughlin score, Wenger in CCL

Despite a jam-packed schedule, the last week was a relatively quiet one for area players.

One highlight of the week, though, was the Harrisburg City Islanders’ Saturday away win at Charlotte. The game was notable not just for the 4-0 pounding that the Islanders delivered, or the fact that all four goals came from Union loanees. It was also notable that two of those four goals, the first and the final goal of the game, came from Union Home Grown Players Cristhian Hernandez and Jimmy McLaughlin. Somewhat poetically, Hernandez’s goal came after only six minutes on the field, while McLaughlin’s came during what would only be a six minute stretch of playing time after he was subbed late into the game. (Union fans will also be happy to learn that the other two goals came another Union loanee with Harrisburg, Aaron Wheeler.)

The other highlight came when Andrew Wenger, the 2012 MLS SuperDraft first pick and Lancaster, PA native, punched his ticket to the CONCACAF Champions League. Last Wednesday, just days after Wenger again scored against the Union, he and his Montreal teammates took on Vancouver in the Canadian Championship. With both team looking to make the jump to continental play and this the only chance for one of the three MLS teams in America’s hat to qualify for the Champions League (yep, if your team is from Canada and wins the MLS Cup or Community Shield it doesn’t help you one bit—look it up), everything was on the line.

After starting all four matches of the tournament, Wenger turned in a solid 90 minute performance as his team drew 2-2 in the final with the Whitecaps in Vancouver. Though only a draw, it was enough for the Impact to claim the Championship and Canada’s only spot in the Champions League. Along with Wenger, fellow area player Zarek Valentin will also get a chance to feature in the tournament, assuming he returns to the Impact after his loan spell with Norway’s FK Bodø/Glimt ends at the end of the season.

  1. Just an idea, but it would be nice to see where these players are originally from as well. They’re obviously local, but where local.
