Hawks Win Two Over the Weekend
Advance to La Super Copa Semis with 6-2 Victory over Dep. Canilla on Saturday; Dramatic 2-1 Victory At End of Regulation on Sunday vs. Raiders FC (WPL)
(Sat - 10 AM - Washington, DC - RFK Auxilary
Sun - 7 PM - Fairfax, VA - Fairfax High School)
The Dulles Sportsplex Aegean Hawks picked up two important victories this weekend in Cup and league play. On Saturday, the Hawks faced Deportiva Canilla in the DC United Super Copa quartfinals and coasted to a 6-2 victory. Ricky Schramm picked up a brace each and Watson Prather, Adam Gracia, and Titou Fierro notched goals to round out the scoring. Saturday's victory did not come without a cost as Corey Curnutte and Watson Prather each picked up their second yellow cards late in the second half and will thus be absent from the semifinals on April 24th.
On Sunday, the Hawks faced WPL newcomers Raiders FC, a squad with many ex-Hawks and current friends on the roster including all-time Hawks goal scoring leader, Andreas Nydal. In a tough battle, the Hawks were able to punch in the game winner just seconds from time for the important 2-1 victory and maintenance of their perfect record for the 2010 Spring season. Next up for the Hawks will be another double header weekend that will be sure to test the Hawks depth. On Saturday April 24th, the Hawks will face Juventus de Suitland in the semifinals of the DC United La Super Copa. On Sunday, the Hawks will head out to the Maryland Soccerplex and play host to Fenerbache USA of Long Island in a Region 1 Amateur Cup Round of 16 fixture.
