U-18s bring home Dallas Cup

Posted on 25 March 2008 by ASN Staff

The Houston Dynamo U-18 team won the Dallas Cup U-19 bracket championship Sunday with a 1-0 win over IMG Soccer Academy at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, Texas.

One year after losing to IMG on penalty kicks in the final, the Dynamo got a second-half goal from Matt Kirby to take the title. Houston went 5-0-1 in the tournament and outscored opponents 15-2 during the week. The tie came in the semifinals, with Houston winning a shootout to advance.

Kirby (Beaumont Monsignor Kelly / Texans) scored in the 65th minute. The Dynakids could not add to their lead but held on to win the tournament title with the 1-0 triumph. The accomplishment is particularly impressive given the team’s youth: competing in a U-19 bracket, the Dynamo had five U-18 players, eight U-17 players, four U-16 players and one U-15 player.
