Monarchs Add Midfielder for Final Stretch
By Max Lom
Real Maryland added midfielder Dia Hunte to bolster the thinning roster for the remaining games. He traveled with the team this weekend, and gained his clearance to play shortly before the team’s game against the Wilmington Hammerheads.
Hunte, a native of Trinidad and Tobago, played well in going the full 90 minutes Friday in Wilmington, and then played the whole game against Charlotte on Saturday.
Hunte had previously trained with Crystal Palace Baltimore as well as several clubs in Trinidad and Tobago. He has ties to the area after graduating from UDC in 2006 with a degree in environmental science, also serving as captain of the school’s soccer team in his senior season.
With four games remaining in the season, he will try to turn the club’s fortunes around to finish the season on a high note. He is expected to anchor the Monarchs midfield from the defensive midfielder position on Wednesday in their clash with Bermuda.
With the roster thinning as the season progresses, through various player injuries and departures, Hunte is a welcome addition for the final stretch of the season.
