FCD Academy loses championship to Pateadores

FC Dallas' Academy team lost to Pateadores of Southern California, 2-1, in the U17/18 Developmental Academy Championship on Friday.

Bryan Leyva scored for FCD, but the Red Stripes couldn't overcome the Pateadores' Jose Villareal.

Home-grown players Victor Ulloa, Moises Hernandez and Jonathan Top also played in this game for FCD.

It was a remarkable run by FCD to even get to the final against some of the best teams in the world. FCD had to win their group in the opening playoff round in Frisco against the top teams in each conference, then win their group again against the best eight teams in the U.S. at the final just to get to this game.

Full credit to Oscar Pareja and his staff for putting together such a terrific team.
