Union U17s look to make most of home field advantage in first leg of GA Cup qualifiers

Philadelphia Union U17 head coach Gary Lewis spent a lot of time last season reflecting on the team’s performances in the Generation adidas Cup.

But he’s done talking about it to his players, which includes a core group of returners — Julian Anderson, Adam Lenges, Ian Graham and Aboubacar Camara among them — and is instead focused on the individual MLS opponents they will face in the annual competition.

“I’ve tried not to speak about last year,” Lewis said. “We just need to focus on each game in front of us.”

The Union come in with some momentum after a fruitful nine-hour bus ride to Montreal last weekend and their second win over an MLS academy opponent.
