FRISCO, Texas (December 28, 2008) -- Top talent from US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) kicked off competition in the US Youth Soccer ODP Super Group at Disney's Soccer Showcase presented by the Chelsea Football Club in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. yesterday. 

All players were on top of their game in the first day of play, and in the 1993 age group, the match between Region II and Region III was no exception. Region III's Bryce Follensbee had a hat trick; finishing goals in the 59th, 74th and 76th minutes of play. His teammate Dominic Bonilla had the goal of the day in the 66th minute. Bonilla beat the defender and hit a blast in the upper left corner from 20 yards out. The game ended with a 4:0 Region III victory.

Another 4:0 victory came in the 1992 age group with Region II and Region III facing off again. Omar Mata opened the scoring with a 27th minute goal and Ricardo Garbanzo followed his lead in the 36th to put Region III up 2:0 at the half. Patrick Mullins scored off of a PK in the 78th and a minute later, knocked another past the keeper to give Region III the 4:0 win.

Players in the 1992 and 1993 age groups will compete in preliminary games December 27-29 and seeding will be held December 30.
