The Met Oval U12 Academy teams traveled to NJ to face MLS side NY Red Bulls in USSF Development academy play in the highly anticipated matches.

In the first game, Met Oval' U12 had to adjust to the high pressing style of the Red Bulls and subsequently went down 0-2 in the first half.  After some tactical changes by Coach Filippo Giovagnoli, the 2nd half was a a different affair as the players came out with a new focus.  Goals by Alex Apielwiez, Jacob Thomas and Ambrogio Musso sealed the victory as the Met Oval dominated possession throughout the 2nd half.  Final 3-2.

In the second game, The Red Bulls again jumped out to a lead scoring three first half goals and leading at half time 3-1 with Kaden Davidson notching the goal.   Again Met Oval mounted a strong second half performance with goals by Marco Derlly and Kiequon Aaron to come back for a 3-3 tie.
