ACADEMY PROFILE: Bridge FA U-15/16

Bridge Futbol Alliance has opened up a five-point lead in the U.S. Soccer Academy's Atlantic Division U-15/16 age group.

BFA won its fifth game in six starts with a 3-2 win over AFC Lightning on Sunday.

Wesley Eads scored his second goal of the game with one minute to play earn the win for BFA, which had blown a 2-0 lead at halftime. Nestor Jaramillo and Eads had scored in the first half.

BFA's only loss was 2-0 to Southeast Division leader Schulz Academy.

The BFA U-15/16s are coached by former South Carolina star Clark Brisson.

Bridge FA draws most of its players from across South Carolina's Lowcountry (Charleston area) and some from other parts of the state and across the border in Savannah, Ga.

In its first year in the Development Academy, the U-15/16 team finished with a 21-5-4 record and pulled off a surprising 3-1 victory over the U.S. national team at the spring showcase event in Greensboro, N.C.
