FRISCO, Texas (December 29, 2008) – Day two of preliminary games concludes at the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) Super Group at Disney's Soccer Showcase in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

As the teams completed in the final day of prelims, players were focused and playing at their best to compete not only for the highest possible seed in tomorrow's championship games, but also to display their talent to the numerous college coaches who are in attendance.

US Youth Soccer ODP is known as the premier identification and development program for the nation's youth seeking the opportunity to compete at the national, professional and collegiate levels of play.  US Youth Soccer ODP is the original Olympic development program and the only elite player development program that can claim members of Major League Soccer as well as a majority of current and past national and youth team members, as alumni.
 
1992 Boys
It was a single goal by Eric Medrano in the 24th minute that gave Region I the day's win over Region II and the top seed spot in the championship game tomorrow. The 1992 Region I Boys will face the 1993 Region IV Boys for the US Youth Soccer ODP Boys Super Group Championship title.

The game between Region III and Region IV was ultimately decided within a five minute span when all the game's goals were scored. Region IV's Brian Godinez beat the keeper to his right side and with a left-footed blast from 16 yards out, scored in the 38th. Region III evened the score in the 42nd with a goal from Patrick Mullins. One minute later, Region IV countered and took the lead when Godinez netted his second of the day, giving Region IV the 2:1 victory.

1993 Boys
The 1993 Region I team followed the lead of their older counterpart as they too won 1:0 over Region II. Zachary Batteer scored the lone goal in the 41st minute of play.

Walker Zimmerman opened with a 12th minute shot to give Region III the early lead over Region IV, but it was an own goal in the 58th that put Region IV on the boards. In the 74th, James Rogers solidified the 2:1 Region IV win and position in the championship game.
