“It was good to see the boys perform at such a high-level over the weekend in San Antonio. Yes, there was a lot of goals, but even more impressive was the intent and quality of our overall play,” Dynamo Academy Director Paul Holocher said. “There were many sequences of strong possession, building-up from the back, good decision-making and dynamic individual actions that really were a great reflection of our game model.”  

Earlier in the week, the Dynamo Academy earned a two-game sweep against Dynamo Unidosat Houston Sports Park.
