For the first time a San Antonio development academy team has entered the Dallas Cup as San Antonio FC’s pro academy went to the tournament which got under way on Monday. The side has had a perfect week so far as they managed two wins in their first two matches.
Their first match was against the Mexican team Club Mana 04 in an entertaining match which they won 3-2. San Antonio won it late on taking away a win in a match they were the better side on but a fast finishing Club Mana nearly took things away from them, all the scoring came in the final 40 minutes of the match. The star for San Antonio FC was Abraham Lincon who scored a brace.
Following up that win in their first match San Antonio FC looked to take that momentum and managed a big win over Celtic Academy Harps (CA) on Tuesday. It was an even stronger performance as they managed a 2-0 win, playing especially well defensively.
With those results, coupled with the other results in their group, San Antonio FC is all but guaranteed a place in the next round as they sit as the only team in their group with a perfect 2-0 record. All San Antonio FC will need in their third match of the tournament is a draw and they will top the group.
On Wednesday San Antonio FC easily won through to the quarter-finals as they managed a big 5-0 win over FC Dallas’ Youth 04B Premier side. That pushed San Antonio FC to the playoffs where they’ll play yet another FC Dallas side.
