The U13 Kansas City United Galaxy Boys, coached by Jim Schwab and the U13 Kansas City United Rangers Girls, coached by Doug Miller, went to Tulsa in mid April to compete in the Tulsa Soccer Club’s Friendship Cup. Matching against teams from Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas both teams reached the elimination rounds.
The Girls fell in the semifinals 1-0 to the eventual Champions, who won the finals, 6-0. It was the only goal the girls surrendered. The Boys reached the finals, falling to the hometown Tulsa Soccer Club.
Back home in the Kansas City Champions Cup, the U16 Kansas City United Boys reached the final, losing after regulation and overtime on kicks from the mark. Unfortunately, Austin Aiman was taken out from behind on a slide tackle near the end of the game, suffering a torn ACL and will be out for the remainder of the season. Our wishes and prayers for a speedy recovery go to Austin.
