The Youth

While the first team played in Salt Lake this past weekend, the Wizards Junior teams competed in the Kansas State Cup competition. Three of the Wizards four teams won the state cup title. The Wizards U-19 team had the easiest path, with only a three team group, the Juniors only had to win one match, which they did easily winning 9-0 over KC Comets Select.

The U-17 team was also the top seed in their age group and they used that seed to ride to the title, winning the championship game 2-1 over KCFC Athletics. The U-16 team was the second seed in their age group and advanced to the finals where they defeated the top seeded KCFC Strikers 5-0 in the championship to take home the title. The one Wizards Juniors that didn't win the title was the U-15 team, who fell in the semifinals to the eventual champions, BVSC Stars Cruz Azul 2-1.

Speaking of Wizards teams, the reserves played today against the KC Brass. The reserves came away with a 5-1 win over the PDL team. Ivan Trujillo got a brace, and Eloy Colombano, Sasha Victorine, and Michael Kraus got the other goals for the Wizards. For the Brass, Lucas Rodriguez, got their goal.
