Chicago Fire Academy Update

The Chicago Fire academy returned to game action on April 2 after being on a break since December.  The biggest news from the academy is a couple of players got into the Chicago Fire Reserves 3-0 victory over the Houston Dynamo Reserves yesterday.  Peter Beasley (U-17/18), Manuel Rios (U-15/16), Brady Wahl (U-17/18) received playing time while Jacob Brindle (U-17/18) and Andrew Connor (U-15/16) made the bench.  The biggest star of the Reserves game was Martin Rivas who is on trial with the senior Chicago Fire club.  Some people assumed he was an academy player but as Guillermo Rivera reported yesterday, the 19 year-old Argentinian Rivas has been training with the team even after getting cut in pre-season.  The latest scoring round-ups and academy news is after the break.

Chicago Fire U 17/18

The U-17/18 is 1-2-2 since returning to play.  Victor Pineda remains the academy's best product but he was in training with the United States U-20 team for yesterday's Reserves League game.  Pineda is used lightly as a sub and when he enters the game, he scores a goal.  I'm really excited to see him get some time in the Reserves League games.  Robert Euler has been splitting more starts with Zak Allen in goal than back in the fall.  Jacob Brindle had a brace against the Derby County Wolves to give him a team leading four goals on the year.  Brindle's listed at 6'1 so the Fire might want to think about bringing him onto the senior club for corners.  I'm only half-joking.
