AYSA Alumni Impacting the MLS Playoffs

The MLS Playoffs are underway… This past Saturday, DC United hosted the New York Red Bulls at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C. The first leg of a two-game Eastern Conference semi-final series ended in a 1-1 draw. Of the 22 players on the field, three played their youth soccer in Arizona!
Former Tucson Soccer Academy player and current New York Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles came-up big for his team by saving a penalty kick in the 33rd minute. 

DC United starts two former AYSA players in Brandon McDonald (Cisco & Sereno) and Nick DeLeon (Cisco). Both played the full 90 for United turning in solid performances!
The series concludes this Wednesday at 6:00pm on the NBC Sports Network. Good Luck to Luis, Brandon and Nick!
