Hayward Wolfpack Drop Home Openers
Hayward United opened their season with two tough losses this Sunday. The Pack dropped the first game to Eau Claire Bateaux, last year's league runners up in tough fashion, giving up the losing goal in the 87th minute. Newcomer Carson Gorecki scored the Wolfpack's lone goal off a penalty kick in the 61st minute. Cole Bergman finished with 9 saves.
The Pack then played Turbo Sports FC immediately following the first game. Although the game was quite competitive, the Minneapolis club's speed mixed with Hayward's heavy legs spelled disaster for the Pack, dropping the game 4-1. Gorecki scored his second goal of the day, with Ethan Wolfe getting the assist. Bergman finished with 12 saves.
"It was nice to get back on the field. These were preseason friendlies so we rolled through our entire team and got everyone playing time. Those are two tough teams to open the season against but I was proud of how the guys played, especially with two games back to back like that. It was a good day of soccer and we look forward to keep preparing for league play on the 28th. We had a really good turnout as well, our team was really appreciative of the fans who came out. Might have been the biggest crowd we've had since we started playing back in 2018." - Manager Kaden Bergman
The Wolfpack will have two more preseason games on Sunday, June 21st against Green Machine SC (Duluth) and FC Midnimo (Barron) at 11am and 2:30pm respectively. Games will continue to be played at the Hayward Soccer Complex, located north of town on HWY 63 across from the KOA.
Wolfpack To Open Season June 14th
Hayward United will open the season at home on Sunday, June 14th against two tough opponents.
The Wolfpack will open the 2020 season at 3pm against Eau Claire Bateaux, who topped last year's WPASL regular season standings. This will be their first meeting since the Wolfpack lost to Eau Claire in last year's WPASL semifinals, 4-3, off a heartbreaking EC goal in the 87th minute.
The Pack will then take on Turbo Sports FC, a UPSL team out of Minneapolis, at 6pm. The UPSL is a high-level national league and considered the 5th tier of soccer in the United States, one level above the WPASL and other regional leagues. This will be the Wolfpack's first game against an UPSL opponent.
All games will be played at the Hayward Sports Complex, located north of Hayward on US Hwy 63 across from the KOA.
Fans will be allowed to attend, but we ask that they respect the 6 foot distancing previously implemented by our government. Alcohol is permitted (but not sold) and concessions will have non-alcoholic beverages and chocolates.
Come on out and support the Pack!
