Loudoun United FC (LUFC) enter Saturday’s matchup following a two-match week. The stakes are growing amidst a battle to stay in playoff contention.
16-year-old Kristian Fletcher recorded his first professional goal during a tough midweek battle against Birmingham Legion FC. The United States U-19 international’s first professional goal was one to remember as he cut in from the left flank and curled home a precise finish to the bottom-right corner. Skage Simonsen recorded his second assist of the season with a lofted pass that led Fletcher to the goal-scoring opportunity.
