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.
