 Slow to update on Chicago

AB scores the lone goal for us against Fire to win 1-0.

So sorry it took me ages to write about last weekend, I just got caught up in ordering uniforms for next season and working on summer camp stuff....So here it goes:

For the third week in a row the Junior Academy teams are on the road. This week we're in Chicago to face division rival Chicago Magic (1-3-1) on Saturday and Chicago Fire (4-1-1) on Sunday. The U16s kicked up first and didn't not look great for the first half. They barely strung together more than 2+ passes and we went into half time 0-0 with Magic in complete control of the match thus far. After a few subs and a re-focused team the 2nd half was extremely different. We opened up scoring on a free kick that was taken by Derek Schrick and headed in by Konner Knoll. About 20mins later we were awarded a PK that was taken by Jordy Rideout. He followed his own shot and scored off the deflection. Final was 2-0

The U18 were and are down 5 players right now, everything from torn ACL to a broken foot. So with that said they had a tough weekend. During their match on Saturday, two players were red carded and the game was dominated by Magic. We did score one lone goal by Patrick Fogilo in the 27th min. The game ended with us losing 1-3 and with 8 field players.

Sunday's games were against the Chicago Fire Juniors. Both teams were very competitive and we went into half time with no score. A few minutes into second half AB scored the lone goal and won the game 1-0.

The U18s were not as lucky. With a smaller than usual roster due to red cards and injuries, we had a couple players from the U16s play with the older boys. The younger boys played their hearts out but Fire was just too tough. They scored two goals each half and the final score was 0-4...all FIRE.

This weekend (tomorrow) we play at home against St Louis Scott Gallagher MO. U18s kick off at 2pm and the U16s at 4pm. Come check it out!
