Trying to take care of a fair amount of personal stuff, like work, I only had one game on my schedule on Tuesday and that was game three for the FC Dallas U17s.
4 pm – U17 Academy – GA Cup
The 17s took on Club Tijuana in game three. They came into the game in a good spot but despite leading most of the game and attempting to kill it off late they managed to let in a goal with under 30 seconds left for Xolos to tie it. FCD ended up losing in the 8th round of PKs. Mason Grimm scored the FCD 1st half goal on a freekick.
Unfortunately, the Crew – who had started the day behind 1st place St Louis City and 2nd place FC Dallas – beat StLou to jump to the top of the group and eliminate Dallas when Los Toros finished even on points with SLCSC.
55 Ale Urzua
11 Nighte Pickering
45 Mikey Murphy
31 Malachi Molina
30 Jared Salazar
2 Adrian Anguiano
35 Luke Shreiner
I was a bit surprised in the make or break 3rd round game to see Urzua (who has been hurt recently), Pickering, Molina, and Salazar come off the bench.
The level of wind made it difficult for skilled players to do a whole lot in the game.
As I said in the other piece, I’m intrigued by the Kris Kelley at right back thing.
This team probably missed their usual keeper, Julian Eyestone, who is out hurt.
The 17s move on to the consolation showcase game. They start with RSL on Wednesday at 2 pm on Toyota 7 and will have games against FC Cincinnati and DC United TBA.
