Racine Utd Boys U17 & U18
Have Good Showing in Dayton Ohio
Over the weekend of March 13-15 the Racine United U17 & U18 Boys Red teams traveled to Dayton, Ohio to compete in the Ohio Galaxies Boys Showcase, one of the top early Spring showcase events in the Midwest.
Both teams began play on Saturday morning with tightly contested games. The 18s were unlucky in a tough 1-0 defeat to Indy Premier Elite (IN), while the 17s were able to get a positive result and edge out La Forza Thunder (MI) for a 1-0 victory.
Saturday afternoon Racine United kicked off their second matches of the event against the toughest opponents of the weekend for both teams. With neither team having been able to train outdoors yet, heavy legs set in. The desire and effort were there, but the 18s fell to Pride SC Premier (OH) and the 17s went down to host club Ohio Galaxies Premier (OH) to close out the action on Saturday.
Sunday morning the teams were refreshed and ready to get back on the fields. The 17s took the field first and played a great match but ultimately fell just short in a 2-1 defeat to TFA Championship (Toldeo, OH). The 18s were on the field a short time afterwards, also against a TFA Premier team. The 18s were able to break their scoring drought and put two goals in the net to finish the weekend with a 2-1 victory.
Racine United's U17 and U18 Boys both finished with a very respectable 1-2-0 record against top teams from across the region and put in three very impressive performances in front of many college coaches and scouts, all before even stepping foot on an outdoor field yet this year.
