FC Dallas sweeps Development Academy titles

FC Dallas won 2016 U.S. Soccer Development Academy titles at the U-15/16 and U-17/18 divisions, becoming the first club to win both age groups in the same year.

The Dallas U-15/16s, coached by Luchi Gonzalez, beat the Los Angeles Galaxy, 2-0, to repeat at that age group. The U-17/18s, coached by Francisco Molina and with a roster comprised of 90 percent of players from last year’s U-15/16 camps, came from behind to beat the Vancouver Whitecaps, 2-1, in overtime.
