WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Through the teams first 12 games the Wilmington Hammerheads have lacked a scoring attack. The Hammers pulled off a rare trade Sunday trying to find some offense.
A league source confirming Wilmington is sending defender Ashani Fairclough to the Seattle Sounders 2, in return the Hammers get highly regarded forward Qudus Lawal.
The 19-year-old has scored 2 goals for the Sounders 2 in 211 minutes. Lawal became expendable because the Sounders 2 MLS partner had sent three forwards down to the team.
The Hammerheads have scored the second fewest goals in the league, and have been held scoreless in 6 of the teams first 12 games.
