[DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY: U-15/16s] The hometown Houston Dynamo U-15/16s carry the lead in Group A into the third day of play at the Development Academy's Finals Week at the Houston Amateur Sports Park. De Anza Force and Solar Chelsea SC are tied for the lead in Group 2.

Dynamo midfielder Christian Lucatero scored with a second-minute free kick to beat Real Salt Lake AZ, 1-0, and move into first place with four points, one more than RSL AZ and Albertson SC, a 3-2 winner over Texans SC Houston.

Albertson SC earned a crucial three points against hometown Texans SC Houston thanks to Arthur Bosua's second goal of the game.

De Anza Force blew two leads before ultimately prevailing on Matthew Powell’s penalty kick in the 90th minute for a 3-2 victory over Michigan's Crew Soccer Academy Wolves and improving to 1-0-1 in the tournament.

De Anza Force led with a fourth-minute strike by Ramiro Molina. CSA Wolves tied it up in the 15th minute on a rebound by U.S. U-17 Ahinga Selemani, just back from Japan. De Anza’s regular-season leading scorer, Carlos Delgadillo, put the Force ahead once again with a 31st-minute strike, but Hunter Barone answered back for the Wolves.

With a victory or a draw against Solar Chelsea SC on Thursday, De Anza would clinch a finals berth thanks to the total goals tiebreaker.

Solar Chelsea SC and the Colorado Rapids played to a rainy scoreless draw in the other Group 2 match.
