Houston club off to fast start

Texas SC DTH, the product of the merger of the Texas Soccer Club (TSC Texans) and Dallas Texans Houston Division academy programs, is off to a great start in the 2009-10 U.S. Soccer Development Academy. The U-17/18s are in first place in the Texas Division with a pair of wins and the U/15-16s are tied with Andromeda for the top spot with a win and tie.

The U-17/18s got a goal from Mark Wagih Gendi in a 1-0 victory over Solar SC and goals from Marcos Escobar and Anderson McDaniel in a 2-0 win over the Dallas Texans.

The U-15/16s beat Solar, 2-1, and tie the Dallas Texans, 1-1. Leonardo Vazquez, a sophomore at South Houston High School, leads them with two goals.

(The Dallas Texans took their name from the TSC Texans -- not the reserve. The Houston Texans were one of the first big travel programs in the Southwest.)
