U.S. Under-17 National Team

Sargent shines again as U.S. U-17s beat Jamaica in friendly


The U.S. Under-17 Men’s National Team maintained its winning ways on Wednesday afternoon.

The U-17s defeated Jamaica 3-0 in an international friendly, with Josh Sargent impressing yet again after two solid showings versus Costa Rica in October.

Sargent scored the second goal for the Americans in the 31st minute, which was his third in as many games. The U.S. captain recorded two goals and one assist in those October friendlies.

Ayomide Akinola bagged the opener for the U.S. after Atlanta United youngster Andrew Carleton set him up. Christopher Durkin then fed Tonny Temple in second-half stoppage time to put a bow on the 3-0 victory. Justin Garces earned the clean sheet.

The U.S. will play Jamaica again on Nov. 6, then the team will take a break before regrouping for a second camp at the end of the month in Florida.
