CASA GRANDE, Ariz. – Real Salt Lake-Arizona Academy U-17 face their toughest test in the early part of the season this weekend in Oregon as they face off against three different MLS academy teams in hopes of qualifying for the 2014-15 Generation Adidas Cup.
The Claret-and-Cobalt face the gauntlet of the San Jose Earthquakes, LA Galaxy and Chivas USA in the group stage of the Generation Adidas Cup this weekend in Beaverton, Oregon in an effort to improve upon last year’s finals appearance in the competition.
In the 2013-14 GA Cup, RSL AZ U-17 won their group and defeated FC Dallas in the semifinals of the competition before falling to Stoke City in the final in a penalty shootout.
In Arizona State League play, Real Salt Lake-Arizona Elite U-18 (3-0-0) highlight the weekend’s slate of games against Arizona Hammers (2-0-0) in a matchup of the two remaining perfect teams in the U-18 division.
Meanwhile, RSL-AZ Elite U-17 (1-0-1) look to rebound from last week’s loss to AZ Arsenal SC with a win against CCV Stars (1-0-1) and RSL-AZ Elite U-16 (1-0-1) attempt to continue their climb up the State League table against SC Del Sol Banat (2-1-0).
