KCW Juniors at SUM U-17 Cup (Update)

Update at the bottom.

The KCW Juniors U-17 team has a chance to win their group at the SUM U-17 Cup today and advance to the Semi Finals. Last year KCW Juniors finished runner up to DC United. This year there are 14 teams in the competition and KCW Juniors are in Group B. They have won their first two games by a combined score of 8-0. They defeated New England 3-0 on July 4th. Defender Sean Latz and substitute Patrick Foglio secured the win by scoring in the 63rd and 64th minutes. On Saturday the 5th KCW Juniors whipped the Colorado Rapids B 5-0. KCW Juniors scored 4 goals in a 5 minute span in the second half (62nd to 67th).

Today the Juniors take on Toronto FC for a Semi Final spot. TFC won their first two games also. They defeated Colorado B 2-0 and then 4-1 over New England. Their game is at 4:00 (Eastern ?). The 4 group winners will be seeded 1-4. A win for KC today should give them the top seed – unless DC United pour it on against Chicago.

Go Juniors!

Update: According to Toronto FC Big Soccer board the TFC U-16 team defeated KCW 3-1.  TFC will go to the Semi-Finals of the SUM U-17 Cup and it seems they also qualify for the Dallas Cup which will send the winners to an international tournament.
