FRISCO, Texas (Feb. 14, 2010)
– The US Youth Soccer National League Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 Boys showcased their talents in meaningful and competitive matches today at Central Park in Plantation, Fla.

Under-15 Boys
The Lemont Raiders (IL) jumped out with an early 1-0 lead over Baltimore Bays Chelsea (MD) with a goal by Jose Garcia in the 9th minute. Romy Hernandez tied it up for the Bays after a corner kick with a near post header in the 34th minute, and he scored again on a PK in the 43rd minute leading to the Bays 2-1 win.
In a five minute time span, 94 CASL Elite (NC) tallied two for a 2-0 lead over the Dallas Texans 95 Red (N-TX) at the half. Jack Huber scored off a corner kick in the 24th minute, and teammate Williams (Ryan) Thompson scored in the 29th minute after being served the ball from the right side, the keeper then misplayed the ball and Thompson netted the goal from 10 yards out. It was too little too late for the Texans as Brandon Aubrey put them on the board in the 77th minute with a six yard header. Though the game ended 2-1 in CASL's favor, the Texans are still in third place, tied with the Bays.  

Under-16 Boys
Determined to get their first win of the season and break the tie with Tulsa TSC 94 Black (OK), Michigan's Waza FC 94 Black took charge early on against Tulsa. Jacob Siims put Waza on the board in the 3rd minute and Gino Pasquali slotted one past the left side post in the 17th minute for the 2-0 lead. After a scramble in front of the goal in the 63rd minute, Tulsa's Jorge Madrigal got one past the keeper. The 2-1 score remained, for a Waza victory.
The game between Concorde Fire Elite (GA) and Penn Fusion Academy Celtics (E-PA) looked to end in favor of Penn Fusion who had the 2-0 lead up until the last minutes of play. Keegan Rosenberry rebounded Alexander Murphy's long shot off the crossbar for Penn Fusion's 30th minute goal. Dan Matthews upped Penn's lead to 2-0 with a 12 yard shot in the 59th minute. Concorde has yet to lose a game in league play this season, and today was no different marking their fourth tie thus far thanks to goals from Adrian Alabi and Drew Morgan in the 79th and 80th minutes for the 2-2 draw.
Under-17 Boys
GSA Phoenix (GA) knew what a win over Penn Fusion Academy Coppa 82 (E-PA) meant, and they used that motivation to slate a 3-0 victory. Iain Smith was the lone GSA goal scorer, with goals in the 10th, 80th and 83rd minutes. Smith leads the age group in goals scored with seven for the season. The win names GSA the Under-17 Boys National League Champion and punches their ticket to the 2010 US Youth Soccer National Championships. A win tomorrow will make GSA the second boys team to go undefeated through league play.

CESA Premier 92 (SC) had the only first half goal in their match with Campton United (IL). With a crisp short pass from Ricardo Garbanzo, the Under-17 Boys second leading goal scorer, Joel Perez netted at 35th minute CESA goal. Campton countered, but not until a 47th minute with a Zachary Matuszak goal. Looking for opportunities, Garbanzo beat two defenders and the keeper, knocking in a right-footed 50th minute shot to the left side. CESA's Daniel Valencia finished the 3-1 CESA victory by sliding home a loose ball in the 62nd minute.
