 U16s Win 3-1 in Playoff Finale

The Sporting Kansas City U16 Juniors ended their run at the US Soccer Development Academy playoffs at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, Texas with a 3-1 win on Tuesday over IMG Academy. Clay Stewart opened the scoring for the U16s in the first half on a corner kick from Daniel Hare, then David Leichty earned man of the match honors with two superb goals in the second half. His first strike came on a perfectly placed free kick to double the U16s advantage before he scored the team's third goal on a chip over the IMG Academy goalkeeper.

The U16s finished in a tie for third place in Group 3 behind fellow MLS clubs LA Galaxy and Houston Dynamo, after qualifying as a Top 25 seed for the USSDA Playoffs and earning an automatic entry with a first place finish in the Frontier Division of the Central Conference of the US Soccer Development Academy.
