Atlanta United is going to its first final at any level of competition. The club’s under-16 team is headed to the U.S. Soccer Development Academy championship game after defeating the Vancouver Whitecaps, 2-0. A first half goal by Andrew Carleton, who also scored in the quarterfinal, gave the young Atlanta side the lead. That sustained them until late in the match when Jackson Conway scored the insurance goal shortly after coming on as a substitute.

Atlanta will now play back-to-back national champions FC Dallas on Sunday for their first ever title as an organization. Can the Carleton-led group of prospects pull it off? The match kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET and will be streamed on the USSDA Facebook Page. Good luck, fellas!
