 A little Chicago and a little more Chicago

Emilio Quezada had a goal against Milwaukee FC

The DA Teams flew to Chicago last weekend to take on Sockers FC on Saturday and then bused to Milwaukee to take on FC Milwaukee and then we they actually are flying back to Chicago this weekend. Tomorrow they will play Chicago Magic and then Sunday they will take on the Juniors of Chicago Fire.

The U16's tied 1-1 against Sockers FC on April 17th. It was one of those games where you control about 80% of the match and leave frustrated and feeling like you lost even though you tied. Bot goals were scored in the second half. Our goal was nothing pretty, Nick Row following up a shot and his managed to get in the back of the net. We need to make sure and take advantage of the opportunities we get in front of the goal.

The U18s kicked off directly after with a depleted roster of only 13 players. They ended up losing a hard fought game 0-1 against Sockers FC. Both teams were evenly matched but Sockers managed to slip one in in the 44th minute right before half and the score remained the same.

On Sunday, April 18th the U16s took the field first vs Milwaukee FC. This game was more entertaining to watch and I am sure play since they didn't pack it like the Sockers did. It was evenly matched from the beginning with the scoring going back and forth. We got on the board first due to a great throw in by Eric Moore that was finished by AB. They tied it up about 15mins later and we went into half time 1-1. The second half opened with Milwaukee coming right at us and scoring off the kick off. Shortly after Moore's throw in assisted another goal that was finished by Emilio Quezada. The game ended 2-2

The U18s were feeling their depleted roster and started a bit rough and unfortunately things didn't really improve. Milwaukee was simply stronger and more organized and won the match 1-3. Our lone goal was scored in the 80th minute by Patrick Foglio.

The U16s overall record (in conference and out of conference games) is: 3-0-6
and the U18 is: 3-4-2.

Hopefully we have better results in Chicago this weekend.
