The U15s currently sit fourth in Group D with five points with a win, loss and draw. They face group leaders Columbus on Friday, February 14. Followed by games against Toronto and Atlanta on Saturday and Monday.
The U15 squad could also secure their seat within Division 1 of the 2020 Generation adidas Cup Finals in Frisco, TX if they finish within the top two spots of their group.
