It’s a local showdown between Atlanta United’s MLS NEXT teams and Kalonji Soccer Academy on Saturday. 

The U-13s-U-17s all square off at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Training Ground for their second meeting of the season with the Gwinnett–based club. 

Atlanta United dominated their matchups in October, scoring a combined 36 goals on the day. 

The U-14s, U-15s, and U-17s are coming off of strong performances against Charlotte FC last weekend. The U-15s and U-17s came out on top, both with a 2-1 score line.

Meanwhile, the U-14s found a dramatic late equalizer to salvage a point in Charlotte, causing absolute scenes as the U-15s and U-17s rushed to celebrate with them.

All of the details for Saturday’s matches Atlanta United and KSA.

The U-19s have remained atop the Southeast Conference standings since closing out the UPSL regular season on October 10.  

As the rest of the UPSL complete their remaining regular season matches, they kept busy with a friendly match against Leg-A-Z Soccer Academy on Saturday. 

The only two teams that could potentially catch them in the standings—Kalonji Pro-Profile and Atletico Atlanta—square off on Saturday. Both sit five points back from Atlanta United with two games left to play, meaning a draw would see the 5-Stripes clinch the top seed heading into the Round of 32. 

Stay tuned for the release of the UPSL national playoff schedule!
