USL PDL Update: Lots of draws, not a lot of goals

Not the most action-packed weekend, from the sounds of it, but here's your weekly update anyway. Also, does it strike anyone else as odd (and even kind of cruel) that some teams need to play games 2 days in a row sometimes? That's rough. Anyway, read all about the weekend that was below...

Western Mass. Pioneers 1 – 0 Boston Victory SC

The weekend kicked off with Boston Victory traveling to Lusitano Stadium to take on the Pioneers on Friday night. Boston’s man advantage was not enough to overcome the Pioneers, who scored by way of Alpha Dioubate, a second half substitute with a really cool first name. You can get a full recap of the match here.

GPS Portland Phoenix 1 – 1 CFC Azul

The goals came late in this one, the first by CFC midfielder Justin Brewer in the 83rd minute (assisted by former Rev Ryan Kinne), which surely was thought to be the game-winner. But Portland managed a stoppage time goal from Nano Short (another cool name!) to help salvage a point. More info on the match can be read about here.

Boston Victory SC 0 – 0 Seacoast United Phantoms

Boston’s second test of the weekend came only a day later as they took on the division leaders at home in Quincy, MA. Both keepers were tested, but the score line remained unchanged as the final whistle blew. Here’s more recap for ya.

Worcester Hydra FC 1 – 1 Vermont Voltage

On Saturday night Hydra forward Alencar Junior continued to showcase the impressive form that saw him earn PDL team of the week plaudits last week with yet another goal. However, it was only enough to earn Worcester a point. On the other side of the ball, Vermont managed to score in the very first minute but was not able to break through for the rest of the match.
