[DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY] Defending champion Real Salt Lake AZ heads the field for the U.S. Soccer Development Academy under-15/16 final four. The Arizona-based program takes on Irvine Strikers FC in Thursday's semifinals, while LA Galaxy faces Chicago Magic PSG in what will be a home match for the Galaxy at StubHub Center. For the quarterfinal wrapup.

The final (live on USSoccer.com at 7 p.m. ET) and third-place game will take place Saturday.

Under-15/16 Quarterfinals:
Real Salt Lake AZ 1, San Jose Earthquakes 0: Midfielder Evan Waldrep scored the lone goal in the second half to give RSL AZ, the 2012-13 national champion, the win at Grande Sports World. Inclement weather in Arizona disrupted the match the night before in the first half, with RSL leading 2-0. Because the game was not yet official, it was replayed the next day.

LA Galaxy 5, Vardar 3: The LA Galaxy (4-0-0 in the postseason and 22-3-6 overall) ultimately prevailed by scoring three straight goals down the stretch in a match that saw three lead changes. Rey Ortiz scored back-to-back goals in the 58th and 67th minutes to give the Galaxy a 4-3 lead that it would not relinquish. Dylan Smith added a goal in second-half stoppage time. Ethan Zubak scored twice to give the Galaxy a 2-0 lead in the 36th minute, but Vardar opened the second half with a goal by Alex Ofeimu and two goals by Tommy Dokho in a span of nine minutes to take a 3-2 lead.

New York Red Bulls 2 Irvine Strikers FC 2 (Strikers FC wins in PKs): Strikers FC went on the road and opened up a 2-0 lead on an own goal and Jackson Kerins' goal in the first 22 minutes, but the Red Bulls responded with a Marcello Borges tally in the 39th minute and a dramatic 80th-minute goal from Ethan Lochner to force overtime. Strikers FC, which advanced to the Academy Playoffs as a wild-card team, won in a shootout.

Chicago Magic PSG 2, Vancouver Whitecaps FC 1: Kendall Stork scored two first-half goals -- his 19th and 20th on the season -- to give the Magic the win over the Whitecaps. Magic is 20-9-2 overall and 3-0-1 during the postseason.
