The Striker FC U17-18 Development Academy team is quietly emerging as a potential Academy Playoff participant. With last weekend's 4 - 1 convincing win over the MLS Chivas Academy side, the team has run it's unbeaten streak to 6 games and is 7-1-2 in it's last ten games.
In the Chivas match, Cal bound Matt Chasman led off the scoring in the 16th minute converting a header off a nice cross from Juan Sanchez. Paul Salcedo then tallied the first of his two goals in the match by converting off a nice pass from newly rostered Cacey Macias just before the half (44th m). Yet another Cal bound player in Christian Thierjung then converted a PK to open the second half (48 m) to put the Strikers up 3 - 0 before Chivas could muster but a single goal in the 48th minute. Salcedo then completed his brace for the final match tally in the 78th minute.
The Strikers U15 -16 Development Academy team is also unbeated in it's last 4 games and fought valienty back each time they found themselves a goal down against Chivas to earn a 2 - 2 draw. Both Pablo Capetillo and Felipe Liborio tallied for the Strikers with Liborio now having scored a team leading 9 goals on the year.
Both teams travel to Arizona this weekend to face the MLS Real Salt Lake Academy sides.
