They spent the first part of the season struggling to get on the board, but a youthful Midnight Sun United team didn’t let their track record keep them from their first win.

MSU beat third-place Porter Creek 2-1 in Yukon Soccer Metro League action last Friday at the Canada Games Centre.

The youngsters outran the guys in green and with solid passing, they succeeded in posting their first win.

A pair of MSU players were alone in the Porter Creek end when a beautiful pass from Skyler Bryant to Marek Boulerice resulted in the team’s second and final goal of the night.

MSU remains in fourth place in the league, however, they are now on the board with three points. Porter Creek also remains in third with nine points. In the early match of the evening, undefeated Riverdale faced second-place Copper Ridge.

The showdown between the league’s top two teams ended in a tie 4-4, which lifted Riverdale another point to 22 and Copper Ridge to lucky 13.

The league’s next games take place Friday at the Canada Games Centre.

Porter Creek will take on Copper Ridge in the early game at 7:30 p.m., while MSU will face Riverdale in game two at 8:30 p.m.
