Don't look now but William Hesmer is ranked among the top goalkeepers in Major League Soccer.
Hesmer, a Wilson native and Hunt High School graduate, has the third-best goals-against average with a 1.15 and has recorded nine shutouts for the Columbus Crew. The Crew, by the way, has easily clinched a berth in the MLS Cup playoffs with a league-high 53 points.
The Crew, which clinched the Eastern Conference championship with a 1-0 defeat of the Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday, needs three points in their final five matches to secure the MLS Supporters Shield. The Shield goes to the MLS team with the best regular-season record.
Good luck to William and the Crew as they begin their MLS Cup quest.
