TAMPA, Fla. — The New Mexico United Academy played to a 1-1 draw against Weston (Fla.) FC in the final match of the USL Academy playoff group stages on Saturday. The draw secured second place in Group A for United and a spot in the third-place match on Sunday at 2 p.m. at Al Lang Stadium, home of the USL Championship’s Tampa Bay Rowdies.
