DA U16 Recap: Sockers find offense
Ryan Sierakowski has St. Louis’ number, and it’s two.
The Class of 2015 prospect from McHenry, Ill., who plays for Sockers FC, scored twice in each a win and a tie with St. Louis-based Scott Gallagher-Metro and Scott Gallagher-Mo., over the weekend. He becomes the first person this year to crack the weekly scoring leaders list twice in the same week, and his four-goal outburst represents also half of the team’s total output this season.
Sockers’ weekend showing pushed the team from fifth into fourth place in the division standings.
The following are highlights from this past weekend:
