MLS NEXT Pro Goal of Matchweek 17: Cavan Sullivan

Goal of Matchweek 17 (1)

Philadelphia Union II's Cavan Sullivan has won the MLS NEXT Pro Goal of Matchweek 17 after receiving over 70% of the poll vote.

At just 14 years, 9 months, and 8 days old, Sullivan became the second-youngest goalscorer in league history, showcasing his remarkable talent and potential.

In their match against New England Revolution II, Union II took an early lead thanks to an own goal by a Revs II defender. Union II extended their lead minutes later when CJ Olney Jr. threaded a pass to Sullivan, who drove the ball deep into the New England Revolution II box and launched a right-footed shot to score his first professional goal.

Sullivan's goal led Philadelphia Union II to a 2-1 victory over New England Revolution II. This marked their 10th win of the season, propelling Union II to the top of the Eastern Conference standings.

Other Goal of Matchweek 17 nominees included Toronto FC II’s Julian Altobelli, St Louis CITY2’s Matteo Kidd, and New York Red Bull’s Julian Hall.

Philadelphia Union II will now set their sights on Chattanooga FC when they face off at Subaru Park on Thursday, July 11th at 6 PM. Catch all the MLS NEXT Pro action on MLS Season Pass on Apple TV.
