    The failure to mention the non MLS Clubs that won has me asking questions. I’m not sure why however, because I already know the answer.

    Which non-MLS team won, and which age group was it?

    TFA won the u13/06 age group by an aggregated 20-4 margin. The MLS clubs that competed in but did not win this age group included Real Salt Lake, New York City FC, Seattle Sounders, Sporting KC, and LA Galaxy

    Crossfire Premier won U16 boys, Total Futbol Academy won the other Division. The point is it makes you wonder if there is an agenda behind this spotty reporting.

    Is there any disclosures being made or should there be  ? Good catch for the poster who called out the legend in Paul Kennedy Lol:-)
