Wabash United kicks off 2nd season

With one league championship already in its back pocket, the Wabash United Futbol Club is getting ready to, literally, kick off its second season.

Competing in the North East Select Soccer League (NESSL) of the Indiana Soccer League, the Wabash United 13-and-under (13U) squad captured the Spring title with eight wins and two ties.

That 13U group will compete in the 14-and-under (15U) age group this Fall, with play scheduled to begin Sept. 9, according to Solomon Vanderpool, president of the WUFC. The club will also field a team in the 12-and-under (12U) age group and one in the 10-and-under (10U) age group.

In its first season, the local club fielded two 13U teams and one 11U squad. The U13 Maroon squad took second place and the White team finished fourth. The 11U did not fare as well, finishing in the bottom half of the standings.

Over the winter in The Plex League, held at an indoor arena in Fort Wayne, the 13U combined squad also took second place.

Other clubs competing in the NESSL include (with number of teams in parenthesis) are Angola, Columbia City, Fort Wayne United, Huntertown (2), Huntington United (2), Jay County (2) and The Plex (3).
