The Re Match Is Set – Daytona Vs Sarasota

February 22, 2024

It’s finally in the books, the Re-Match is here!


The DME Academy, High School National Team will travel down to Sarasota to square off against the DME Academy, Elite Academy Black Team (05/06 boys). Both teams have had great years to date but this match up is one that both teams look forward to. The game will take place on April 26th at 7 PM at Tatum Ridge fields.

Thales Peterson and the boys from Daytona will venture down to the west coast of Florida to match up with Jake Dube’s boys. The event will feature fundraising elements for the club and while we expect a competitive and hard-fought game there are elements of cooperation and a shared mission to grow the game. Over the last year the two programs have worked together regarding guest playing, showcase participation, and cross-team training sessions. We are stronger in numbers and the connectivity between Daytona and Sarasota is quite unique.

Last year’s matchup ended in a 4-0 victory for Daytona in Coach Peterson’s first game of his exciting career at DME. He has gone on to lead the boys to impressive top-bracket Super Cup victories as well as countless wins against top ECNL, MLS, and collegiate programs.  Coach Dube has got the boys working together, raised their status to a top 1/3 team in the Elite Academy, and has also won tournament trophies, most recently a Finalist medal in the Weston Cup.

“I could not be more proud of Thales for where he landed, what he has endured, and the results he’s posted over the past year. He is a special coach, person, leader and friend. On the flip side, I am so excited for my boys and Coach Jake. What an opportunity to play one of the best teams in the country and to see Jake bring this team together and fight for each other is inspiring. In the end, I just want to showcase the relationship and the pathways that DME can offer players. DME is here to stay. We are doing it right and we’re putting Sarasota soccer on the map.” Jared Antista
