Academy Update: U-14s and U-13s open the flood gates against Arsenal Colorado

There were not too many goals in games involving teams from the Rapids and Lonestar SC Development Academies on Saturday, but it was quite a different story in contests with Arsenal Colorado.

The U-18/19s were held 1-1, despite taking the lead through Rafael Perez. Only one goal was needed for the U-16/17s to register victory in their game, with Jairo Barreras striking early. The U-15s were also 1-0 winners, courtesy of Sam Bassett.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Luke Robinson bagged a brace for the U-14s as they defeated Arsenal Colorado 7-1 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Other goals came from Daniel Garcia, Banyon Lyon, Alan Salgado, Darren Yapi, plus an own goal.

The U-13s kept a clean sheet in defeating Arsenal Colorado 3-0. Kevin Tlaxcalteco, Sureel McCain, and Finn Hilty were the scorers. The two U-12s teams won 2-1 and 3-1 respectively.

Next up for the U-18/19s, U-16/17s, and U-15s is a trip to Texas to face FC Dallas on November 4, followed by a meeting with Solar SC on November 5.

The U-12s, U-13s, and U-14s are in action a little sooner. They host Real Colorado on October 28, before traveling to Colorado Springs to play Pride Switchbacks DA on October 29.
