Lancaster native Travis Worra, who grew up in the pre-Union days of his youth a DC United fan, made his first start with his favorite team on Saturday.
The Hempfield High School grad who led the Black Knights to a state title in 2010 made his debut last season with a 32-minute cameo off the bench. An injury to Andrew Dykstra cleared the way for Worra to not only record his first start but also register his first clean sheet in a scoreless road draw with the New York Red Bulls.
Worra made three saves in the game.
The 6-foot-3 keeper set a school record for saves with 157 during his University of New Hampshire career from 2011-14 and made 12 appearances with Richmond Kickers in USL last season on loan. Prior to college, he played in the U.S. Development Academy with PA Classics from 2007-10.
Saturday was an eventful day for goalkeepers from our region. Woodbury, N.J., native Tyler Miller made his first start for Seattle Sounders FC.
