Red Bulls are best out of 148 Development Academy teams

The New York Red Bulls are the hottest team in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy's Under-15/16 age group, running their unbeaten streak to 15 games (12-0-3) with wins over a pair of Pennsylvania teams.

With Schultz Academy's loss to Clearwater Chargers, the Red Bulls' U-15/16s are the only undefeated team left out of the 148 teams participating in the 2008-09 Academy.

The Red Bulls beat PA Classics, 2-0, on goals by Sam Adjei and James Raytsin set up by Oscar Gonzalez and Victor Manosalvas, respectively.

In the 1-0 victory over FC Delco, Gonzalez scored a great goal from 25 yards out on a pass from Paul Ehrenworth.

"We had a lot of different guys help us this weekend," said U16 coach Rob Elliott. "We put together some very good soccer this weekend and were able to limit chances from both PA Classics and Delco."

The Red Bulls' U-15s and U-14s, who are coming in the new Pre-Academy League, will be off to Spain on Sunday to compete in the Mediterranean International Cup against some of the top youth teams in the world, including Manchester United, FC Barcelona, Inter Milan, the Brazilian national team and the Mexican national team.
