Philadelphia Union Academy in PDL: Brett Campbell nets hat trick

The Georgetown forward continued his assault on PDL defenses with a hat trick in a 6-0 win over FC Euro.

Georgetown forward Brett Campbell never found his scoring touch in his second season in the nation's capitol last fall playing a reserve roll behind prolific forward and Red Bull Academy product Brandon Allen, but he's shown in the spring season and now in PDL play just how dangerous he can be.

The rising junior scored a hat trick in Reading United AC's 6-0 win over FC Euro at St. John's University last week and now has five goals on the season in four games played. Only Syracuse's incoming junior college transfer Ben Polk and University of Charleston's Dion Peters have more goals in PDL so far this season with six.

Fellow Philadelphia Union Academy alumnus and Campbell's Georgetown teammate Keegan Rosenberry scored Reading's lone goal on an 88th minute penalty kick in the Union PDL affiliate's second game of the week Saturday, a 2-1 loss to D.C. United U-23.

Louisville rising senior Shane Campbell, who made the PDL Team of the Week for his play last week, played 45 minutes in the FC Euro game and 79 minutes in the DC United U-23 loss. Memphis rising senior Quincy Thomas played 90 minutes and 68 minutes in the two games and James Madison goalkeeper Kyle Morton was between the pipes for the full 90 minutes in both matches.

Michigan State defender Andrew Herr played 90 minutes in Pittsburgh Riverhounds U-23's 0-0 draw with Michigan Bucks on Saturday.

Lehigh Valley United Sonic lost both of their matches in the week, losing to DC United U-23 2-0 on Wednesday and 4-3 to New York Red Bulls on Saturday.

Old Dominion defender Nick Hutchinson, Lehigh University rising sophomore Doyle Tuvesson and LIU goalkeeper Logan Keys started in both matches for the Sonic. Notre Dame defender Patrick Berneski played 45 minutes off the bench in the DC United U-23 match and 90 minutes in the Red Bulls match. George Mason midfielder Colt Amidon came off the bench for 12 minutes in the DC United match and five minutes against Red Bulls.

La Salle rising senior Joe Farrell played 90 minutes for Red Bulls U-23 and Duke University's Brian White was an unused sub against Lehigh Valley. White started and played 60 minutes in a 2-1 loss to Baltimore Bohemians on Wednesday and Farrell came off the bench to play 30 minutes.

Xavier center back Todd Pratzner played 63 minutes off the bench for Baltimore Bohemians in their 3-1 loss to Ocean City Nor'easters on Saturday and 5 minutes off the bench in their 2-1 win over Red Bulls.

Super-20

Fairfield rising sophomore Joe Harding played 75 minutes in the midfield and assisted on the lone goal of the game in a 1-0 win for Reading United's Super-20 Reading United team over Potomac SC on Friday.

Duke rising sophomore Noah Snyder started and played 57 minutes and West Chester rising sophomore Brett Glasco came off the bench and played 48 minutes.

The team won 3-2 on Sunday, but a box score for the game has not been posted.
