Academy U15s vs. RSL at MLS NEXT Cup

Philadelphia Union Academy U15 squad concluded its MLS NEXT season in the Round of 16 at the MLS NEXT Cup Playoffs on Sunday afternoon.

Playing a rematch of last year's U15 Championship match, the Union and Real Salt Lake contested each and every ball during the 80 minute contest and were scoreless at the break. The Boys in Blue struck first with a 51st minute goal from Diego Rocio but the defending champs battled back with two goals in two minutes to rally back and advance.

The Union Academy is still represented at the biggest youth tournament of the season with the U17s playing Toronto FC on Monday evening in the Round of 16.
