Philadelphians Abroad

Philadelphians Abroad: Allison, McLaughlin, and Hoppenot see the net

While I enjoyed a long week’s rest, a number of players from around the area continued to put in some hard work over that last two weeks.  Here are some highlights from our local lads:

  • Former Junior Lone Star FC forward Anthony Allison continues to impress in the Swedish Division 1.  Starting for the eleventh time with Umeå FC since joining the side over the winter, Allison scored what would eventually be the game winner in the 38th minute of Sunday’s 3-2 win over opponents Västerås SK FK.  While my knowledge of the Swedish language is virtually non-existent, Google Translate tells me that the goal came after an earlier attempt by Allison which rebounded off of the crossbar, but was ultimately squashed by the opposing ‘keeper. Later on, finding Västerås SK’s attention locked on fellow Umeå goalscorer Simon Mårtensson, Allison was able to work in from the left with the ball under full control and easily chip the ball into a virtually open goal.
  • Last week, in one of the Harrisburg City Islanders’ least convincing performances of the year, Union Homegrown Player Jimmy McLaughlin provided one bright spot in their 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh. Off to a good start with a first minute goal from Tom Mellor, the Islanders took to the game to Pittsburgh early in the first half. Riding high twenty minutes later, captain Jason Pelletier put in a great pass to McLaughlin, who snuck behind Pittsburgh’s line just as the pass split two defenders. Alone on goal, McLaughlin chipped the ball past the advancing goalkeeper to give Harrisburg the 2-0 lead. The scoreline would hold through halftime, but Pittsburgh came out of the locker rooms swinging, putting up 4 goal in 38 minutes, before Harrisburg forward Sainey Tourey scored a stoppage time consolation goal with an assist for Union loanee Aaron Wheeler.
  • It’s old news now, but remember when that Princeton lad Antoine Hoppenot put the nail in New York’s coffin last Sunday? That was great.
