The Dallas Texans and Pateadores played to a 3-3 draw on Tuesday in U-15/16 action
The U-15/16 squads start the second round of group matches today, as teams hope to climb into the driver's seat in their respective groups ahead of an off-day tomorrow.
The U-17/18 teams take a one-day break on Wednesday after completing the second round of matches last night.
Here's a look at three U-15/16 games to watch during today's action:
Charlotte Soccer Academy vs. Vancouver Whitecaps FC, 6:30 p.m. CT: The two leaders of Group 3 go head-to-head to determine which squad will take the reins during the second day of play in the U-15/16 group. Brody Huitema scored twice in the first half for Vancouver on Tuesday in a 2-1 win against FC Greater Boston.
Real Salt Lake AZ vs. Clearwater Chargers, 6:30 p.m. CT: Real Salt Lake AZ looks to keep pace with the Chicago Fire at the top of Group 4. Following a 4-2 win against Seattle Sounders FC on Tuesday, Real Salt Lake should be brimming with confidence heading into a match against a Chargers team that fell 4-2 against Chicago.
D.C. United vs. LA Galaxy, 8:30 p.m. CT: In a matchup of two MLS-affiliated clubs, D.C. United has the chance to lock up a spot to the Development Academy Finals Week with a win and a beneficial result in the other Group 6 game during the night. D.C. United needs a win plus a draw between the Colorado Rush and Concorde Fire to capture a berth to Finals Week.
Heading into Wednesday’s second round of games in the U-15/16 group, three teams have the chance to clinch a spot to Finals Week with the right combination of results.
In Group 6, D.C. United clinches with a WIN against LA Galaxy AND a TIE between the Colorado Rush and Concorde Fire.
In Group 7, PA Classics clinches with a WIN against Weston FC AND a TIE between Chicago Magic PSG and Arsenal FC.
