 Results from Dallas

The Sporting Kansas City U16 and U18 Juniors teams traveled to Frisco, Texas over the weekend to play a few friendlies against youth squads from nearby MLS and Mexicans clubs.

The U16s got off to a hot start on Saturday, winning 3-1 against Tigres. Goals were scored by Wes White, Luke Blackwell and Tarlue Doe. Things weren't as easy for them the next day as they fell to the only team with two wins on the weekend, Santos, 0-2.

For the U18s, they found themselves in a goal fest against Monterrey on the first day, as they drew 3-3. Jordan Rideout, Will Witherspoon and Michael Oakley were the goal scorers. The three of them have already signed letters to play in college.

On Sunday, the U18s game against the Houston Dynamo was a little more defensive. It resulted in another draw, 1-1, with Sporting's goal being scored by the captain and central defender, Oakley, for his second of the weekend.

The Juniors next matches will come at the end of the month when they go to Columbus, OH to compete in the SUM Cup.
