FRISCO, Texas (Feb. 13, 2010)
– The US Youth Soccer National League Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 Boys resumed league play today at Central Park in Plantation, Fla. Each age group is represented by four of the League's eight teams. This weekend of play will finalize League standings until the remaining four teams per age group compete in Las Vegas, Nev., March 19-21.

Under-15 Boys
The Lemont Raiders (IL) and 94 CASL Elite (NC) were evenly matched through the first half. Lemont's Jose Garcia netted the only goal of the game in the 52nd minute after receiving a through ball and taking a 10-foot shot into the lower right corner. The game ended in Lemont's favor, 1-0.

Playing through fierce winds, the Dallas Texans 95 Red (N-TX) and Baltimore Bays Chelsea (MD) knotted at 0-0 as a final result. The draw moved the Texans out of the Under-15 Boys three-way tie for second place.

Under-16 Boys
It was a rocket shot 25-yards out on free kick by Westin Lendon in the 25th minute that put Concorde Fire Elite (GA) up 1-0 over Waza FC 94 Black (MI). Playing a man short, Waza rallied in the second half finding the 55th minute Jacobs Siims equalizer. There were several shots on goal, but neither team was able to find the finisher for a final 1-1 score.

Another draw in the Under-16 Boys came between Penn Fusion Academy Celtics (E-PA) and Tulsa TSC 94 Black (OK) with the game ending 0-0. Penn faces number two team, Concorde Fire tomorrow.
Under-17 Boys
Taking advantage of strong winds in each half, Penn Fusion Academy Coppa (E-PA) marked a 2-0 victory over CESA Premier 92 (SC). Owen Griffith netted both goals, the first off a corner in the 13th minute and the second from 20-yards out in the 81st minute. Penn Fusion is one win behind their competitor for tomorrow, an undefeated GSA Phoenix (GA).

Opening their game against Campton United (IL), GSA's Iain Smith headed a pass straight up and into the wind, and it carried over the keeper and into the net for a 16th minute for a 1-0 upper hand. Defending against the wind in the second half, GSA held onto the lead to go 5-0-0 for the season.

Tomorrow could be a season changer for the Under-17 Boys. If GSA finishes with a draw against Penn Fusion, they clinch the first Under-17 Boys seat in the 2010 US Youth Soccer National Championships, but a win will give the title of National League Champion and punch their ticket to Nationals.  

National League action continues Sunday, Feb. 14 at Central Park with games at 8 a.m., 10 a.m. and Noon ET. For complete standings, scores and schedules, visit the National League Center or go to /National_League/. Follow National League on Twitter (@nationalleague).
