U13 Sporting JB Marine Mann go from the frying pan into the fire today, following their 1-5 loss to Baltimore Celtic. Today they face group leader EC Real Galaxy (by way of goal differential). The two leaders will face each other Thursday so SJBM need a win to be in position to advance to the Finals on Saturday.
U14 Lou Fusz Geerling earned a late draw Tuesday (video below) and today face McLean (VA) who lost to current Bracket leaders San Diego SC. A win is necessary to give themselves a chance to advance Thursday when they face San Diego, who advanced to Nationals by winning their National League bracket.
U15 Futura Pink Panthers ran into a buzzsaw Tuesdsay as Legends SC (Southern CA) whipped them 5-0. About what Solar Chelsea (TX) faced in losing 1-6 to La Roca (UT). So Futura and Solar will both be desperate for a win today. The game will be streamed live today at 1:30 pm.
U16 Futura Academy got what is hopefully a momentum building win Tuesday, coming from a 0-1 halftime deficit to win 2-1 against Tophat (GA). Today they face bracket leader (+2 GD vs +1) La Roca (UT) with a strong likelihood the winner will advance to the semifinals Saturday. The game will be streamed live today at 7:30 am.
U19 SLSG got was likely the most dramatic win of opening day when Kaleb Jackson scored with seconds remaining in the game. Really, the whistle blew as the teams lined up for the restart following the goal. They face GSA Premier (GA) today, a team that lost 0-2 to open play. Let’s hope they don’t have to rely on dramatics again as the team, with only two subs, will face the Scottsdale Blackhawks Thursday who won 2-0 Tuesday.
Today’s Live Streams include the Futura U16 Girls at 7:30 am and the Futura U15 Girls at 1:30 pm.
