Loudoun Soccer visited YSC Sports near King of Prussia on Saturday for a U.S. Soccer Development Academy game against the Philadelphia Union Academy U14 team.
Loudoun goalkeeper Keegan Murphy was the highlight of the first half, making a flurry of saves to keep the Union off the board. Evan Pedraza put the visitors ahead in the fifth minute.
But the Union offense was too much in the second half as Tianshuo Yang had a brace and Dante Huckaby scored from the penalty spot and was involved in a chance that ended up being credited as an own goal.
Yang is second on the team in goals with nine behind Aboubacar Camara’s 20. Huckaby’s goal was his first of the season for the U14s.
The win for the Union was their fourth in their last five games.
The U14 team ends their regular season at home this weekend against Virginia Development Academy on Saturday at YSC Sports at 3 p.m. and on Sunday against New York Red Bulls at 12:30 p.m. at Villanova University.
