Following the Academy's official "Signing Day" on Thursday, Sept. 10, the official rosters were released on Saturday morning to start the weekend.
The U-19s kicked off from the Crew SC Training Facility at Obetz and featured a trio of standout performances from Aidan Wolf, Anthony Samways, and Anthony Hernandez.
Following the U-14's shutout loss at Otterbein University Memorial Stadium, the U-15's took to the field next but could not overcome a 3-1 halftime deficit as they eventually fell 4-1.
Closing out the day's competitions were the U-17's, who were led by solid performances from debutants Lucas Rizzo, Quentin Flowers, and Levi Stephens. Tied at 2-2 in the 60th minute, the Black & Gold went on to convert a penalty in the final moments of regulation to win 3-2.
