Michigan star shatters scoring record
November 18th, 2009 9:15AM



Soony Saad returned home from the U.S. under-17 residency program in Bradenton, Fla., to play his senior season for Dearborn High School -- and what a season it was ...

Saad, the 2008 U.S. Soccer Development Academy U-15/16 Player of the Year, shattered the Michigan prep record with 76 goals for the season and 172 for his career.

He broke the record with a incredible run in district playoff action -- four goals in the first game, five in the second and seven in the third.

In the regional semifinals, DHS fell to Plymouth Salem, 2-1. Saad, who had the only goal for the Pioneers, was marked by three players.

Saad, who will join his brother Hamoody at the University of Michigan next season, was named Michigan's Mr. Soccer for the 2009-2010 season. Of the 11 players announced on the 2009 Dream Team, 10 were Derby County Wolves players. Saad and Josh Gatt were named for the second year in a row.
