The players have been off for 4 weeks finishing school and wrapping things up. "Fitness was a big issue for us in the 2nd half, said ECNL DOC JD Cochran, we had 13 players and we ran out of gas.
The U23 program is about getting these players opportunities to stay fit. This was our first day of preseason and it showed. We have 21 days to get ready for FC Dallas who went to the National Championships last year. Our goal is to train and play as much as possible and go to the National Championships in Seattle ." The Aces game ended 2-0.
Thanks to the entire Houston Aces Staff and program for the event!
