Potomac picks up ties, Baltimore Bays Chelesa U-18s roll in Dev. Academy play

By Jimmy LaRoue

Potomac’s Under-16 and U-18s picked up ties against the New England Revolution, while Baltimore Bays Chelsea’s U-18s dominated in a 6-1 win over New England in the region’s U.S. Soccer Development Academy action over the weekend.

Potomac’s U-18 match against the Revolution was a contentious affair. The match featured three red cards, two of them against Potomac, who still rallied for a 90th-minute goal from Philip Breno to escape with a tie.

Potomac’s Anthony Kim opened the scoring in the 24th minute, but back-to-back goals from New England’s Ramiro Osario and Dominik Machado in the 62nd and 63rd minutes gave the Revolution the lead before the late equalizer.

Baltimore Bays Chelsea U-18s started strong and never let up, as Malcom Harris scored in the first minute and had a brace by the 11th, as Bays Chelsea rolled to the win. Yaw Amankwa added another goal before the half, and Christian Morales had a second half brace, scoring in the 71st minute and in the second minute of added time. Michael Gamble also added a goal in the 73rd minute. The Revs’ Peguy Ngatcha scored their lone goal in the 76th minute.

Virginia Rush, meanwhile, is holding onto their lead in the U-16 standings, as second place Charlotte Soccer Academy picked up a 1-1 tie over the weekend against CASL Chelsea FC Academy. Rush leads by four points. Third-place North Meck SC closed the gap to six points with a 2-1 win over North Carolina Fusion, while CASL is seven points out.
