Voyageurs Take Delayed Home Opener 3-0

0

Green Bay Voyageurs FC (GBVFC) earned their first win in club history, defeating WSA Winnipeg 3-0 on Saturday morning at Capital Credit Union Park by scoring two goals just minutes apart before halftime, and adding a third just after the break.

The match took place Saturday morning after the scheduled home opener Friday night was called off due to lightning after just 12 minutes.

In the first half, the Voyageurs maintained offensive pressure early, ultimately building towards Nick Marnkanich netting the Voyageur’s first goal in club history in the 40th minute. Markanich was set up by a cross by Demitrius Kigeya.

In the 44th minute, Alex Welch scored to give the Voyageurs a two goal advantage heading into halftime. 

Anthony Markanich capped the Voyageurs scoring in the 49th minute, scoring off a cross by Louis Yuill.

Goaltender Jamison Yoder made three saves to earn the Voyageurs’ first clean sheet. The Voyageurs are now 1-1-0 in their inaugural USL League Two season. They will host USL League One side Forward Madison FC in a friendly Wednesday night.
