STRIKERS Nicholas Addlery and Kavin Bryan opened their accounts in the North American Soccer League (NASL)
and the Vietnam Super League over the weekend.

The 30-year-old Addlery scored the only goal in Puerto Rico Islanders 1-0 win over Tampa Bay Rowdies in their opening match Saturday.

Addlery netted in the 69th minute, eager to better his seven goals of last season for the Islanders who were runners-up to defending champions Carolina RailHawks.

The Islanders will travel to San Antonio Scorpions next Sunday for a six o'clock match at Heroes Stadium, San Antonio, Texas.

Yesterday 28-year-old Bryan, a past player for Harbour View FC, was on target in the ninth minute for Hai Phong who lost 2-1 to leaders Da Nang in the Vietnam Super League.

Bryan has so far played 11 matches, eight times in the starting line-up, to log a total 815 minutes this season.

Hai Phong are at the bottom of the table with seven points, while Da Nang lead with 23 points.

Hai Phong will welcome sixth-placed Sai Gon next Sunday.

Last Wednesday, Sean Fraser grabbed his eighth goal for Alianza FC in a 2-2 draw with CD FAS at Estadio Cuscatlan in San Salvador.

Twenty-nine-year-old Fraser netted in the 79th minute, after Ricardo Ulloa put FAS ahead in the 18th minute.

Jose Alvarado then put Alianza ahead in the 86th minute but Juan Moscoso handed FAS a point in time added to stay in fifth place with 24 points.

Alianza are in ninth place of the 10-team league with 15 points.

Fraser, who has not played for the Reggae Boyz since 2008, has now become the fourth leading scorer in the Clausura 2012.

He trails Nicolas Munoz, 12 goals and Anel Canales and Juan Reyes with 10 goals each, and joins Juan Campos, who also scored eight goals so far.

Fraser has logged 1,186 minutes from 14 matches, starting in all of them and five times substituted out. He has received four yellow and one red card.
