The U-13/14s conceded eight goals to the New England Revolution Academy, two of those goals being scored by Jonathan Ferreira. The U-15/16s conceded four times as they were kept scoreless as well.

The U-17/18s didn’t fare much better in keeping the ball out of their net, but they fared much better in scoring their own. They scored four times to get the lone Albertson win at the weekend. Kobie FraserBarry SharifiKevin Arriola and Nicholas Elkins each scored a goal.

BSC CT Academy began their DA season this past weekend and found it rather difficult going against Blau Weiss Gottschee. Playing at their home field, didn’t provide much of an advantage. The U-13/14s suffered a 3-0 defeat to a goal-happy BW Gottschee that scored six goals a weekend ago.

The U-15/16s fared a bit better as they took their first points of the season in a 1-1 draw. However, the U-17/18s also were handed a debut in their opener and were shutout conceding twice in the loss.

Cedar Stars Academy has had a rough start to the season. After losing 1-0 last weekend to FC Continental Delco, the club suffered their second defeat. This time it was to Match Fit in a 3-0 loss.

With two weeks with no goals and ultimately points, Cedar Stars will need to rebound this coming weekend.

Match Fit Academy

U-13/14s – Match Fit Academy 3-0 Cedar Stars Academy (9/13)

Losing in big fashion in their first game of the season, Match Fit flipped the script this past weekend. They scored three times to ease to victory over Cedar Stars Academy.

Met Oval secured a big win over the Philadelphia Union. However, they couldn’t replicate that fine start in a loss to New York Soccer Club. The home side got a brace from Justus Boyhen and a goal from Will Citron.

Met Oval has a home game this coming weekend where they excelled in their opener. They will look to continue their success there.

New York Red Bulls

U-15/16s – New York Red Bulls 2-0 NJCSA (9/13)
U-17/18s – New York Red Bulls 2-1 NJCSA (9/13)

The New York Red Bulls Academy scored a ton of goals a weekend ago. While scoring decidedly less goals this time around, they still found the same success.

The U-13/14s held on for a 1-0 win with Pablo Arias scoring the game’s only goal early in the contest. The U-15/16s also held on for a clean sheet. Omir Fernandez and Brian Saramago were again on the score sheet and both have tallied three times to start the season.

The U-17/18s conceded the lone goal to NJCSA, but were able to get the victory. Juan Sebastian Sanchez and Derrick Etienne, who now has scored his fourth of the season, were on the score sheet.


U-13/14s – New York Red Bulls 1-0 NJCSA (9/13)
U-15/16s – New York Red Bulls 2-0 NJCSA (9/13)
U-17/18s – New York Red Bulls 2-1 NJCSA (9/13)

NJCSA failed to get a win or any points in their first weekend of play and the second went in similar fashion, albeit conceding less goals.

The U-13/14s and U-15/16s were both shut out. The U-17/18s saw Nicholas Cousillas sent off for two yellow cards, but were able to score a consolation goal through Hayden Criollo in the game’s final moments.

While the results weren’t there, NJCSA can take some positives in tightening their defense up a bit and slowing down a high-flying Red Bulls Academy to an extent.

U-15/16s – Oakwood 1-3 Everton FC Westchester (9/13)
