Two local Academy sides earned berths at the U17-U18 Development Academy 2012 Finals Week.  Both FC Dallas and Solar Chelsea won their respective brackets at this week's USSF Academy Playoffs held in Frisco at the FC Dallas complex.

The FC Dallas squad rolled to the top spot in group 5 winning all three matches in shutout fashion while scoring seven goals.  They notched 3-0 victories over both McLean and Sockers FC around a tight 1-0 win over rivals Real Salt Lake.

Jose de la Tejera notched the important winner against Real Salt Lake.  Star keeper Richard Sanchez manned the nets in the shutouts.

Solar Chelsea also rolled to three wins in winning group 7.  They failed to notch a shutout giving up four goals in their three matches, but the offense was clicking as they found the net a whopping nine times.

The wins came against Albertson FC, Concorde Fire and Chicago Fire.  In the deciding match Solar raced out to a 3-0 lead in only thirteen minutes as Ryan Condotta, Zach Mathers and Cole Missimo scored.

FC Dallas and Chelsea now advance to Development Academy 2012 Finals Week joining six other sides to vie for the title.  Four of the eight teams will be MLS Youth academies.  Vancouver Whitecaps, Colorado Rapids, FC Dallas and Chivas USA.
