Dominic Dubon and Marcelo Mazzola each had four goals in an 11-0 rout for the Philadelphia Union Academy U15s over DC United in a full slate of games against the MLS academy rivals at YSC Sports on Saturday.

The attacking duo of Dubon, a Maryland native and Mazzola had 42 goals between them for the U14 team last year and helped put on an impressive display against an overmatched DC side.

The Union had chances early but were kept off the board before 12-year-old phenom Aaron Heard opened the scoring in the 21st minute with his second goal of the season. Dylan Lacey double the advantage in the 29th minute and Dubon’s two goals and Mazzola’s first of the game made it 5-0 at the break.

The Union’s press and some poor defending on counter attacks led to six more goals in the second half as the U15s displayed what can happen when their ball hunting and transition game is clicking on all cylinders.

The win highlighted a positive day of results for the Union that included a scoreless draw for the U14s and 4-0 wins for the U17 and U19 teams.

Paxten Aaronson had a goal, his first of the season, and added two assists for the U17s. Jack Jasinski, Jack McGlynn and Caden Stafford also connected on their first goals for the Union in Development Academy play while Owen Moore recorded his second straight clean sheet to start the campaign.

Selmir Miscic scored on a couple free kicks and Aboubacar Camara added a brace with a penalty kick in the first half and a goal from the run of play in the 56th minute. Newcomer Ben Martino recorded the clean sheet in his academy debut.
