Back to Back Goals Lead Magic Over Scott Gallagher; Quick Goals Continue Conference Trend


CHICAGO (May 13, 2008) – Development Academy Director of Scouting Dave Sarachan was on hand as the U-15/16 Chicago Magic topped Scott Gallagher, 3-0, behind a pair of first half goals that came just a minute apart. According to Sarachan, back-to-back goals have been a trend throughout the first year of the Academy.

“The Development Academy has a different mentality to it than the old club scene where clubs were preparing for two or even three games in one day,” said Sarachan. “Now, they have to treat the game with a different level of concentration and a different mentality.”

As the Academy continues its first year, players and coaches have had to make adjustments to training more and playing in fewer games, and Sarachan thinks that may explain the quick-scoring trend.

“In the case of our Academy games, where you’re gearing up through the week with training for just one game on the weekend, there is a different mentality that goes into it as far as managing that team as a coach of player,” he said. “They only have 80 or 90 minutes to get through those moments where there is a let down. Players and coaches in the Academy are still getting used to that.”

Experience in managing games for both players and coaches is part of the growth of the program, and Sarachan believes that it’s a theme that will continue to improve as the Academy grows.

“It’s still a fresh mentality as far as managing this kind of roster as a player or a coach,” said the assistant coach of the Men’s National Team. “Just like anything else, in any business or any walk of life, experience in soccer is key. The experience of year one will be critical for all of the Academy teams to draw on for year two.”
