D.C. United go unbeaten as MLS academies see mixed results
Dev. Academy round-up

The start of the MLS season is right around the corner, and for a handful of clubs across the country, last weekend provided a chance for MLS academies to head into action.

There were some strong performances from some academy sides as the hunt for a spot in the Development Academy playoffs later this summer heats up. The San Jose Earthquakes posted a 3-1 mark at home, as the U-16s defeated Irvine Strikers 5-1 before squeaking past Pateadores 1-0. The U-18s couldn’t quite replicate that success, defeating the Strikers 2-1 before losing 2-0 to Pateadores.

MLS goal No. 8000 is near

SEATTLE -- The old adage says there is no such thing as a bad goal.
This is usually said after the ball goes in off someone’s shin or the back of a player's head.

And though that might be true, there are definitely good
goals. And important goals. Milestone goals.

MLS is on the verge of another milestone goal: The
8,000th goal ever scored in the league.
