WILSON, N.C. (Dec. 11, 2009) - The US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) Boys 1992 Winter Interregional kicked off today at Wilson Gillette Soccer Complex in Wilson, N.C. The US Youth Soccer ODP Boys 1992 Interregional event is being held in conjunction with the NCAA Division I College Cup Championships and the opening weekend of the US Youth Soccer National League Boys season to provide greater exposure of these elite players to collegiate and national team coaches.
The US Youth Soccer ODP Boys 1992 Region I and Region II teams opened play this weekend battling to a scoreless draw. Both teams were determined to get a result from the game, but neither would allow the opposing offense to penetrate first as they fought through chilly temperatures to a 0-0 finish.
US Youth Soccer ODP Boys 1992 Region III came back from an early 2-0 deficit before Region IV took over once again in the second half to give the westerners a 4-2 win in their opening game. Ian Ramos put Region IV up early at the 10 minute mark and John Crenshaw extended the lead to 2-0 in the 31st. Justin Portillo pulled Region III back into the game with a goal four minutes later and in the second half Michael Derbecker leveled the score in the 53rd. Region IV regained their form as the second half wore on and reestablished their two goal lead with goals from Ramos and Dustin Corea just seconds apart in the 72nd to give Region IV a 4-2 victory over Region III.
US Youth Soccer is divided into four regions, Region I (East), Region II (Midwest), Region III (South) and Region IV (West) to assist in national competitions.
