U-18 Action Live!

Development Academy Finals Week is reaching the business end of proceedings here at Home Depot Center. Today all four U-18 games are being presented live on ESPN U, and with two quality games in the books, one can't help but look forward to tonight's matches as well. In the first game, FC Westchester managed to narrowly earn a shootout victory over CASL. FCW held their nerve from the penalty spot to seal 7th place in the U-17/18 division.

Next up was a battle of the Fires - Concorde vs. Chicago. In a back and forth game that saw a good amount of attacking soccer, Concorde Fire prevailed over Chicago by the score of 3-2.

Right now, the Crew have a slight advantage over the Colorado Rush as the second half has just kicked off. Tune in to ESPN U to catch the last part of an intriguing game, and be sure to stick around for tonight's big matchup between hometown favorites LAFC and the Baltimore Bays. The crowd is already piling in to support their team (there's a lot of red in the crowd) and the atmosphere is sure to be exciting. We'll be back later with the results!
