D.C. United's U-18 Academy team saw their winning streak snapped this past Saturday with a 1-0 loss to FC Delco's U-18's in Radnor, PA.

A missed penalty kick by the U-18’s in the opening minute of the match and a converted FC Delco penalty kick in the 72nd minute proved to be the difference between the squads. A handball inside the box in the first minute of the match gave Patrick Foss (South Riding, Va.) an opportunity to put United up 1-0, but the FC Delco goalkeeper saved the ball to keep the scoreline even.

D.C. United's U-16 US Soccer Development Academy team continued their winning ways by shutting out VA Rush 3-0 this past Saturday.

Julian Cummings (Fredericksburg, Va.) put the U-16’s ahead 1-0 off of a Christophe Koffi (Potomac, Md.) pass across the six-yard box.

On Sunday, D.C. United's U-16 Academy team defeated Potomac's U-16's 4-1 at Long Bridge Park in Arlington, Va.

Gaining a rhythm of possession early and stymieing the opponents’ talented attacking corps with an organized backline, the U-16 team showed great discipline as well. Goals came from a Gerson Umana double – his opener a beautiful free kick from 25 yards and his second a pass from winger Julian Cummings – and a Christophe Koffi brace – his first a cross from Michael Monahan and his second a cross off of the post from Cummings.

About halfway through the 2012-13 NCAA season, the first year that MLS will graduate a class of homegrown players, several former members of D.C. United Academy teams are making significant contributions to their respective collegiate squads.
