The Dynamo Academy has made great strides the last few years and this team is really nice. They play terrific soccer that’s quite impressive given they are mostly 12 years old. Gael Gonzalez opened the scoring in the 28th minute. Salem Shariff and Rocco Alvarado added goals in the 2nd half.

Max Lora Araux scored a cracker of a goal in the 27th minute. In the 43rd minute, Maxim Scordo added a second goal before the half. Colton Beuck tacked on a third goal late in the game.

Kristian Kelley was the hero on the day with the hat trick. He was electric, with a burst and skill Surf had no answer for. When this kid is on he’s really on and today was a fantastic performance by the younger Kelley brother. Miguel Padilla  scored the 3rd goal, preventing the natural hat trick.

With this win, the 2006s become the first FC Dallas class to win two Dallas Cup titles as they also took home the trophy as U13s in 2019. This was also the club’s fifth piece of Dallas Cup hardware in the past five years.

Credit to San Diego Surf for making two finals on the day.

In a very evenly matched game, Dallas Texans’ Guy Michaeli was able to score the lone goal of the game in the 60th minute. Texans made a fantastic team build-up to create the goal.
