Charlotte Soccer Academy (17-2-1, 43 points) continued their torrid run through the Chesapeake Division this weekend, dispatching both McLean Youth Soccer (0-13-1,1 point) and FC Virginia at the Orthocarolina Sportsplex.

They followed that victory up with a 2-0 win over FC Virginia, pushing their consecutive win total in league play to six.

FC Virginia also earned a positive result on Saturday with a 1-0 win over NC Fusion (4-9-3, 15 points), as they recorded their seventh clean sheet of the season.
