Impact U13 team reaches CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals

MEXICO CITY – The Impact U13 qualified for the Scotiabank CONCACAF U13 Champions League quarterfinals on Monday by finishing second of its group.

The Bleu-blanc-noir ended the first round with a 1-1-1 record, winning 2-0 against ADFA Ahuachapan in its first game, losing 1-0 against CSD Herediano and tying 2-2 against Instituto Cedrus.

“First, I’m really satisfied because we are qualified,” said Impact U13 head coach Serge Dinkota. “It’s the reward of the work and efforts that not only the boys, but also all the staff, gave. The boys have performed well until now with a game like today in a hostile environment, which will be a benchmark for us. From now on, we’ll go one game at a time.”

The Impact will face Santa Ana this Wednesday at 1pm EDT in the quarterfinals. The semifinals and the final will be played on July 29 and 30.
