Development Academy Finals Week - Tuesday, July 16

By Missy Wade

 

Tuesday was a game day for the Revolution Under-18 team, and the players and staff prepared as such.
 
Breakfast and lunch were served in the dining hall at the dorms, and treatments were available early afternoon.
 
The group met up again at 4:30 and took the bus over to Houston Amateur Sports Park shortly after. Upon arrival, the team learned that lightning delays were again in effect, and the start of warm-ups had been delayed. After spending some time in the locker room, the group was allowed to take the field.
 
Another pair of late-game goals saw the Revs suffer their second consecutive Finals Week loss. For more, a game recap is available on revolutionsoccer.net
 
After the game, the team received a pep talk from the coaches, iterating that the staff was proud of the group for their accomplishments this season and this week, and that there are still two games left to play like professionals.
 
A postgame meal was served back at the dorms and the players then took ice baths before returning to their rooms for the night.
 
With a rest day tomorrow, the Under-18s will play their third group game of Finals Week against St. Louis Scott Gallagher Missouri on Thursday, July 18, at 9:30 p.m. ET.
