Under-18s defeat Chicago Fire 1-0 in do-or-die USSDA Playoff, advance to quarterfinals

FC Dallas was 2-0-0 heading into Thursday's final USSDA Playoff Week match against the Chicago Fire, and needed a win to advance to the national quarterfinals.

That's exactly what they got with Tony Aguilar scoring his second goal of playoff week in the 40th minute sending Dallas to a 1-0 win over the Fire.

The FCD backline of Cesar Murillo, Jordan Cano, Shaquell Moore and Kris Reaves held their second straight shutout of the week and U-16 goalkeeper Charlie Furrer, playing up with the U-18s for the first time, led Dallas to a 3-0-0 record in playoffs week.

With passage secured, Luchi Gonzalez's side will host Colorado Rush in Frisco on Monday, July 7th in the national quarterfinals. Stay tuned for info on when and where the match will take place.

Under-16s complete USSDA Playoffs undefeated, but fail to advance

The FC Dallas U-16s also enjoyed a strong USSDA Playoffs week going undefeated with a 1-0-2 record.

Heading into Thursday's playoff finale, FCD needed a win over Orlando City and either a draw or loss by San Jose to advance. Dallas was only able to manage a 1-1 draw with Orlando City, meaning a trip to the quarterfinals is not on the schedule for the U16s this year, but a strong squad showed they will be a team to be reckoned with over the next couple seasons as many of the players move up to the U-18 level.

In all, FC Dallas went 4-0-2 at USSDA Playoffs week, finishing undefeated.

Own Goal propels FCD U-18's to 1-0 win over Portland Timbers

The Under-18's continued their strong run through playoffs week with their second win in two days, defeating the Portland Timbers 1-0 by way of a 76th minute own goal. The FC Dallas defense led by Jordan Cano, Cesar Murillo, Shaquell Moore and Kris Reaves have allowed just one goal so far in two matches with U-16 goalkeeper Charlier Furrer moving up to play for the U-18s in these playoffs.

Despite having six points and a +4 goal differential, FC Dallas will need to beat the Chicago Fire on Thursday morning to advance to the final eight with the Fire holding a superior six points and +5 goal difference.

U-16s come from behind to defeat Shattuck-Saint Mary's in playoff opener

Ranked #4 nationally, the FC Dallas U-16s got off to the best possible start in Tuesday's USSDA Playoff opener scoring in the first minute against Shattuck-Saint Mary's. However, they would concede two goals in the first half to take a 2-1 deficit to halftime.

In the second half, Luiz ZuaZua scored in the 56th minute to tie the match and Mario Ramirez Sansabas won it for FCD right at the death in the 80th minute to secure a priceless victory.

The U-16s continue playoffs week on Wednesday at 4:00PM against the San Jose Earthquakes.

23 June 2:45 pm

The US Soccer Development Academy Playoffs began just outside Indianapolis today for the FC Dallas U-18 Academy, and Luchi Gonzalez's side started the week victorious with a 4-1 win over Charlotte Soccer Academy.

Jose Livano, Yannick Koffi, Antonio Aguilar and Oscar Romero scored in the win for FC Dallas. The win leaves FCD in good shape at the top of their group as the week continues. Dallas will face Portland Timbers FC tomorrow before their final group stage match against the Chicago Fire. Only the first place team in each group moves through to the final eight.

For Francisco Molina's U-16's who are the #4 national seed, playoffs week begins tomorrow afternoon against Shattuck Saint-Mary's at 4:30PM.
