FRISCO, Texas (November 25, 2008) - US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) Girls Thanksgiving Interregional continues at the North Community Park and Coral Glades High School Sportsplex in Coral Springs, Fla. 

Play was tight as teams played today in the beautiful Florida sun. Three games ended in 0:0 draws while another ended deadlocked at 2:2.
 
The 1993 Region II vs. Region III game was a game of two halves. Region III came out early knotting a goal in the 11th minute from Taylor Smith. Later in the first half, Annalika Steyn (Region III) found the back of the net in the 35th.   In the second half, Region III continued to apply pressure but was unable to notch another goal. Region II continued to advance on the Region III defense and finally broke through in the 70th minute with Georgia Waddle scoring a goal. Twelve minutes later, Alex Heffron knotted the game at two goals apiece.
 
Region II Coach Brad Evans said, "We were able to sustain an attack in the second half that we weren't able to in the first. We gave ourselves opportunities with our attack and our corner kicks and were able to find the back of the net and tie the game."

The US Youth Soccer ODP Girls Thanksgiving Interregional represents teams in the 1992 – 1994 age groups including the U.S. Under-15 National Team. For complete information on the US Youth Soccer ODP Girls Thanksgiving Interregional, including rosters, scores, schedules and more, visit www.USYouthSoccer.org.
