Minnesotan Jackson Yueill Helps Break NCAA Record In Dominant Performance

by on 5 September 2016

Minnesota native Jackson Yueill assisted onfour goals for UCLA in their 6-1 drubbing of the University of Akronon Monday night, including three in a 32-second stretch that broke the NCAA record for the fastest three goals scored in a match(previously the record was 43 seconds).

The sophomore from Bloomingtonwas named Man of the Match, and now has five assists on the young season. UCLA are 2-1-1 and have scored eight goals overall.

Yueill has been ranked among the best college players in the country, and has multiple appearances with the USYNT to his credit. He has trained with Minnesota United FC on multiple occasions, andpreviously spoke to FiftyFive.One’s Brian Quarstad about his desire to go professional sooner rather than later. In that interview, he said, If [Minnesota United] were able to sign me as a Homegrown player or whether Id go into the SuperDraft, Im just not sure, explained Yueill. Thats a talk Ive had with my dad as well as a few others and I havent really figured everything out yet. But I definitely think playing for Minnesota would be very cool in my own hometown.

The Akron Zips were ranked thenumber one college team in the country entering Monday’s match. Presumably they are no longer viewed that way.

Check out Yueill’s fourth assist at the 1:55 mark as he does a no-look, through his own legs, give-and-go.
