Bradenton, Fla. (Dec. 14, 2012) — The annual US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) Boys Winter Interregional is now underway at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. The three-day event kicked off Friday and features boys from the 1997 age group.

Highlights from today's matches:
 
1997 Boys: Region I v. Region III
The opening game for these two squads was a tightly-contested defensive contest. Following a scoreless first half, Region I’s Abreham Kittel scored in the 45th minute to give his team the lead. That proved to be the lone goal of the game, as Region I defeated Region III, 1-0.
 
1997 Boys: Region II v. Region IV
It looked like this game would end in a tie until Region IV recorded a late winner to come away with a 2-1 win over Region II. Cody Kuehl gave Region II the early lead with a 23rd-minute goal, but Region IV’s Devin Guidichesci equalized three minutes later to make it 1-1. The score stayed that way until Nicholas Porter scored for Region IV in the 79th minute, helping his team to victory just before the final whistle.
