We just played our first two matches of the spring season, and picked up right where we left off!

The U16’s beat Dallas Texans 2-1 on February 4, and beat Texans SC 2-1 on February 11. They currently sit in 5th place out of 11 in the Central Conference U15/16 Frontier Division with a record of 8-4-3. They head off to the second regional of the Generation Adidas Cup this Thursday, leading their group with eight points. They will Face LA Galaxy on 2/17, Seattle Sounders on 2/18, and Portland Timbers on 2/20.

The U18’s drew nil-nil with the Dallas Texans on February 4 and beat Texans SC 3-0 on February 11. With that win, they have now posted five consecutive shutouts. They currently sit in 4th place out of 11 in the Central Conference U17/18 Frontier Division with a record of 8-4-3. They will be playing a friendly match (controlled scrimmage) with Switchbacks FC on February 22, with a 6:30 pm kick off at DSGP Field #10.

Sounds like both teams are doing well, and we wish them luck in their upcoming tourneys!
