 Success in Minnesota

The Sporting Kansas City Juniors made their way up north to Minnesota this past weekend and were met by a framed Teal Bunbury jersey as they entered the Shattuck St. Mary's soccer dome (Bunbury attended the high school there). Maybe a little inspiration from the senior team member was all that was needed for a successful weekend for the squads.

On Saturday, the U18s tied Shattuck St. Mary's 2-2. Andrew Mobberley, a new member of the team from New Zealand, recorded his first assist with the club. They then played the Minnesota Thunder on Sunday and came away with a 3-2 win. Jordan Rideout and Will Witherspoon each had two goals on the weekend, as Tom Adams also scored and had an assist.

The U16s won 2-0 on the first day and drew with the Thunder 0-0 on Sunday. Wes White and David Leichty each had goals in the win. This was the continuation of US Soccer Development Academy play for the U16s and U18s and marked their first games of the 2011 calendar year.

The teams will have their first home matches of the season against Colorado Rush and Real Colorado this weekend at the Sporting Club Training Center in Swope Park.
