Fall has finally arrived here in New England and this weekend marks the start of a very busy month for the Seacoast United Academy teams.
Closing out the month of September, the only two Academy sides that were in action last weekend were the U13 and U14 Girls teams. Both teams hosted a weekend doubleheader in Epping against New York Soccer Club and Long Island Soccer Club and came away not only with wins, but some encouraging performances. “Last weekend was a huge plus for our programs,” said Girls’ Academy Director Chris Scott. “The teams are really starting to come into their own and their confidence is growing by the day.”
The two sides will take that confidence on the road this Sunday when they travel down to New York for matches against Empire United.
After a brief hiatus, the MLS Next teams return for a full round of fixtures. The U13-U19 make the short trip down to Boston where they will take on familiar foes Boston Bolts. The teams scrimmaged each other prior to the season starting so this will be their first encounter where it counts.
“We know the players and staff at Bolts really well and historically, we have had some really good encounters over the years.” said Boys’ Academy Director Peter Decker. “This Saturday will be another good test and will also set the tone for Sunday when we welcome the Revs.”
The U14, U15, U17, & U19 teams conclude the weekend back at home with the highly anticipated match up against New England Revolution Academy. The games will be taking place at the Seacoast United Sports Complex in Epping, NH and we are encouraging as many people as possible to come out and support the teams.
Plenty of exciting games this weekend for the Academy teams so be sure to follow Seacoast United’s official social media accounts for the latest updates. For more information on the Academy program, please email Chris Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org or Peter Decker at email@example.com.
