 Monday Recap

U13s: Heading into their third group match on four points, but in need of a positive result to assure a place in today's semifinal, Dustin Ottesen's side came out flying, hammering West Des Moines SC by a 6-0 scoreline. A hat trick performance from Jacob Weaver paced the U13s. Absalom Solorio and John Leisman were also on the scoresheet.

U15s: Coming off a 2-0 win over St. Louis Scott Gallagher and sitting on three points, the U15s entered their final group game yesterday needing a win and some help to progress to the knockout stages of their age division. Progression to the semifinal was not to be, however, as Sporting were held 1-1 by Ambassadors of Ohio North, finishing second place in the group.

U18s: With two wins already in the bag for the U18s at the Academy Showcase, the final match against the Chicago Magic provided one last chance for the players to demonstrate their abilities in front of a fair few college coaches and youth national team scouts. The Showcase, designed for teams that failed to qualify for the playoffs, has been a success for the U18s, and the side ended on a high note Monday, getting goals from Will Witherspoon, Tom Adams, Garrett Pulliam and Jordan Rideout on the way to a 4-1 victory.
