 U16s Top Chivas USA, Head Home

Today, our U16s defeated Chivas USA 2-0, but unfortunately the boys are heading home without a place in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy Round of 8. Lucas Throckmorton opened the scoring in just the 2nd minute, banging home a shot off the post. Then in the 10th minute, Derek Schrick chipped the goalkeeper from 50 yards. Jon Kempin held on for his second straight shutout, but unfortunately the result was not enough to advance.
Heading into the day, we needed the Baltimore Bays (who we lost to 2-1 Friday) to lose (and for goal differential to then end up in our favor) for us to advance. Baltimore took care of business against the Dallas Texans and were one of only two clubs to go a perfect 3-0-0 at the event. Take a look at the full, final standings here.
Former First Team Head Coach Bob Gansler watched today's game. The boys put on a great performance for our first year in the Development Academy. Teams around the country fully respect the KCW Juniors.
