[ACADEMY SELECT GAMES] Goals by McKenzie Gaines and Ethan Zubak gave the Blue Team a 2-0 win over the Red Team in the U-15/16 Academy Select Game at Premier Sports Campus. The U-17/18 Select Game ended in a 0-0 draw.

Zubak (LA Galaxy) set up the first goal in the 15th minute when he broke away from his defender down the right flank and sent in a low centering feed for Gaines (Lonestar SC Academy) to put away.

As the half hour mark approached, Gaines cut into the box, where he was tripped by the Red Team’s Trey Vinson. Zubak converted the resulting penalty kick to wrap up the scoring.

Strong goalkeeping from the likes of Christian Herrera, who saved a penalty kick, Bennett Sneddon, JT Marcinkowski and Justin Vom Steeg, son of UC Santa Barbara coach Tim Vom Steeg, kept the U-17/18 game scoreless.
