There are still two regular season games left for Duluth FC before a possible post-season game, but first-year striker Sidney Warden has already made it a memorable season.

“I’ve always loved scoring goals and it’s almost become an obsession,” he said.

The London native scored twice in a 6-0 win over La Crosse Aris on Wednesday at Public Schools Stadium in Duluth. Those two goals put him at 14 goals for the season, breaking the record previously held by Kyle Farrar, who scored 13 regular season goals in 2017.

“He’s come on strong and is averaging more or less two goals a game,” said Duluth FC head coach Sean Morgan. “Obviously he was prolific in front of goal and that’s a testament to him and his hard work.”

Warden‘s goals came in the 12th and 26th minutes. Another record could be a possibility for Warden. Farrar holds the club record for career goals with 19 goals. Goalkeeper is second.

“I really enjoyed my time here, for sure. Breaking a record is always nice, especially when it comes to scoring goals, but the main thing now is to move on and push towards the playoffs and to go as far as possible in the competition and hopefully breaking more records,” says Warden.

Striker James Westfield scored in the 28th minute, giving him four goals this season and 12 in his career with Duluth FC. Westfield is now third in club history in goals, overtaking Joe Watt.

Duluth FC (7-3-0) and Med City FC (7-3-0) each have 21 points. They are battling for second place in the National Premier Soccer League North Division standings. Minneapolis City SC has already clinched the top spot. The BlueGreens travel to the Dakota Fusion on Saturday for the club’s final road game of the regular season. Duluth FC will host Sioux Falls at Public Schools Stadium on Friday, July 16 to wrap up the regular season.
