 Saturday Recap

Action continued on Saturday for the Juniors as the U13, U15 and U16 teams all had games.

The U13s drew with FC Milwaukee, 1-1, in their first game of the Region II Championships in Wisconsin. Jacob Weaver scored the team’s only goal and was assisted by Dakota Karns. They play Minnesota Thunder on Sunday, a team they beat 3-0 back in April.

Also in Wisconsin, the U15s lost to the CUP (Cincinnati United Premier) Crew Jrs Gold squad, 0-1, on Saturday. They’ll face local opponents, St. Louis Scott Gallagher early Sunday morning.

In Frisco, Texas the U16s lost their first game of the USSDA playoffs to the LA Galaxy, 1-2. The team’s leading goal scorer, Nate Opperman, found the back of the net once again. The Galaxy were seeded as the country’s fourth-best U16 team so they should find easier waters in their upcoming two matches with the next one coming Sunday against Houston Dynamo.

After Friday’s 3-0 win, the U18s next opponent will be the Virginia Rush, who they play on Sunday. That match starts at 9am.
