Leading Off - April 10th Dallas Cup

The U16 up to the Super Group are in action today. Yesterday's drama brought about 2 PK finals and most of the top rated clubs advancing. It should be another sunny day in the 70°.
  • West Coast FC and Dallas Texan Red are still on a collision course for the finals but first they have to avoid being tripped up by Southampton and Legends. WCFC is the complete package with a strong defense complimented with speed and skill up top. DTR 96 is an offensive juggernaut with the likes of Erick Chapa, Christian Ramirez; Ian Sadler and Emerson Hyndman.
  • Chicago Magic As Monaco Academy is a mix of both the U16 and U18 team. The quartet up top of Jesse Ortiz, Aaron Horton; Ty Engel and Harry Shipp has been gelling well together. CMASM will run into the buzz saw that is Ruben Luna and the FC Dallas U16's. When Ruben scores, he scores in bunches. the 1:30 pm game could be the game of the day
  • Sao Paulo FC might be the only team that can match up with Manchester City physically. Robbie Mak, the star of this tournament, will have to battle through the physical onslaught that will be waiting for him. Anything to slow him down.
