FC Dallas U16s rebounded from their Friday loss to Independiente Del Valle on Sunday. The U-16s would go on to gain goals from Nathan Toledo and Brayan Padilla, en route to a 2-0 victory over MLS rival academy Real Salt Lake U16s.

Despite the bad news for the FCD U16s, it was actually a good day for the FCD Academy as a whole:
It was also a good bounce back day for MLS academies, as they rebounded from a winless first day against International teams, to finish with more victories than losses on the second day. Results can be found on the official MLS Generation adidas Cup page.
