 U13s and U15s in St. Louis

Over the past weekend in St. Louis, the U13 and U15 Sporting Kansas Juniors teams competed against some of the top clubs in the nation.

The U13s had a successful run against three of Chicago Magic's Pre-Academy clubs. They finished with two wins and one draw against two U13 teams and one U14 side. The boys got off to a quick start in the first game when Trevor Cissell put one past the keeper just two minutes into the game. They went on to draw with the PA1 U13s when the opposition scored with the clock winding down in the first half.

In the U13s other two matches, the Juniors outscored Chicago by a combined 5-1 (2-1, 3-0). Dakota Karns, John Leisman and Logan Lucas all helped with the goals. Lucas put a stamp on the weekend by scoring the team's final four goals.

The U15s had a rough time against last year's National Champions, but were also battling absences as seven players on the primary roster were unable to make the trip. Jojo Piatczyc was the lone goal scorer for the Sporting U15s.

These games served as a tune-up for when all four Sporting Kansas City Juniors clubs head to Columbus at the end of the month for the 2011 SUM Cup.
