FRISCO, Texas (December 28, 2008) – Day two of preliminary games concluded at the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) Super Group at Disney's Soccer Showcase in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

Play in today's matches continued to showcase the elite level of play that is produced by US Youth Soccer ODP.

1992 Boys
Region I slated a win 1:0 against Region III compliments of a Kofi Agyapong goal in the 56th minute when he hit the shot from 25 yards out and sent the ball through the keeper's legs and into the back of the net.
 
Moises Orozco netted one in the 29th to give Region IV the early lead, but Region II evened the boards with a Hamad Jaman 56th minute shot. The game ended at a 1:1 deadlock.

1993 Boys
Mark Leibensperger made the game-opening goal in the 17th to put Region I up over Region III. Minutes later, Ryan Tauss beat two players and hit a goal that every player dreams when he took the shot from 25 yards out and hit a laser in the side netting to give Region I the 2:0 lead. Matthew Brown put one away in the 45th for Region III, but it wasn't enough. Region I walked away with the 2:1 win.

Region II took control of the game early on with a Jason Stacy goal in the 13th, followed by Eric Miller's shot in the 45th. Region IV regrouped and evened the score with goals from Juan Mendoza (53:00) and James Rogers (60:00). From a ball that was served into the box and finished on the first attempt, Mendoza had his second goal and the game winner in the 80th. Region IV won 3:2.

One day remains of preliminary games before players in the 1992 and 1993 age groups compete against each other during seeding on December 30.
