A six game stretch of road games will begin this weekend for the IMG U-18 and U-16 US Development Academy Teams. After coming off tough matches against Miami FC last month, the teams will travel to Raleigh and Greensboro, North Carolina, to play matches Saturday and Sunday.
Currently tied for the third position in the southeast division, Coach Jim Rooney's boys have a tough road ahead. He will rely on the consistent play of Brazilian Midfielder Ricardo Batista and team Captain Chase Miller, to navigate the team through the final stages of the season with hopes to capture a playoff spot.
The U-18s have made a mark on the league winning seven of their first eight games putting them at the top of their division. Now after seven months of battling, they will face No.1 seed CASL Chelsea FC this Saturday before heading to Greensboro the very next day.
