Big return for Matt Watson as RailHawks blank Wilmington 2-0

Posted by on Wed, Apr 15, 2009 at 10:21 AM

The biggest news out of last night's RailHawks' 2-0 victory over the USL-2 Wilmington Hammerheads was the return of Matt Watson, who scored 15 minutes after entering the game in the second half. 

Watson, last year's team MVP, joined the squad yesterday after helping his indoor side, the Baltimore Blast, to the MISL championship. Furthermore, his first child was born yesterday in Baltimore.

Although the team's press release pointedly says last night's squad shouldn't be considered a second team, it notes that few of the players in the evening's lineup saw action in last Saturday's 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Thunder. Among them: Hamed Diallo, Gavin Glinton and Brian Plotkin (the Hawks' release inadvertently omitted Plotkin).

Other players on last night's lineup included the back four of Jeremy Tolleson, Caleb Norkus, Paul Ritchie and trialist Brad Rusin. Midfielders included Plotkin, Glinton and Watson. Players seeing minutes up top included Aaron King and John Cunliffe (who scored the game's second goal in the 82nd minute). Caleb Patterson manned the goal.

The RailHawks' Tim Candon has more.
