US Youth Soccer ODP Girls Region II 1992 Girls win against Under-15 U.S. National Team
FRISCO, Texas (November 26, 2008) – Play continues with the 1992s at US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) Girls Thanksgiving Interregional held at the North Community Park and Coral Glades High School Sportsplex in Coral Springs, Fla.
Under the lights of Coral Springs High School, Region II faced off against the Under-15 U.S. National team. Region II struck first in the 16th minute when Sarah Killion scored. The U.S. National team found themselves down by two after Kelsey Smigel finished a 50-yard breakaway off by tucking the ball past the national team keeper. The U.S. National Team pulled within one when in the 90th minute Cate Parchinski buried the ball into the Region II net. The game ended with a 2:1 score in favor of Region II.
Region II Head Coach Glen Tourville said, "It was a favorable result, we struggled to string together consistent passes in the first half. I think it was due to some nerves playing against the national team. But the girls really came together in the second half and played a controlled and attacking game."
The US Youth Soccer ODP Girls Thanksgiving Interregional represents teams in the 1992 – 1994 age groups including the U.S. Under-16 National Team.
