DES MOINES, Iowa (July 8, 2011) – In the second day of preliminary games, the Under-14 through Under-17 Boys and Girls teams were looking to move one step closer to competing in the finals of the 2011 US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup at the James W. Cownie Soccer Park in Des Moines, Iowa. Not a single bracket in the tournament has seen two teams qualify to advance to the finals, so every game Saturday has championship implications.

For the second day in a row, the U-14 Boys teams started the day with lots of scoring. SB Select 96/97 Club Mexico (S-TX) had five different players score goals en route to a 7-0 victory over Azteca (KS). With six points, Club Mexico has secured a place in the final game. Corona Eagles (CA-S) kept its championship hopes alive with a 5-1 win over Var Swoosh (VA). Corona was led in scoring by Leobardo Bahena who netted two goals on the day.

United Futbol Club (CA-S) tallied its second win in as many days with a 4-1 victory over BSA Rage (EPA). Four different scorers found the net for the California team and United Futbol Club grabbed a seat in Sunday's final. In the other U-14 Girls game, Cassie Johnson scored the lone goal for Tri-State Premier (OH-S) to secure the 1-0 victory over LAFC Houstonians (S-TX).
 
U-15 Boys AVSC Ambush (TN) put its game with Next level Soccer Academy (NJ) out of reach quickly with three goals in the first 20 minutes of play. NLS got one back in the 72nd minute, but AVSC prevailed 3-1. After trailing for much of the game, Miami Beach Soccer (FL) leveled its game versus FC Porto (KS) at 1-1 on an 80th-minute goal by Otto Quiroz. Zach Huston of FC Porto restored his team's lead moments later and secured the 2-1 victory.
 
On the girls side, Premier FC Black (WA) continued its winning ways in Des Moines with a 6-1 victory over Capital United (ENY). Whitney Lowe scored a double for Premier FC and four other Washington players joined the score sheet. KC Fusion Cummings (KS) took an early 1-0 lead over Texas Rush Nike (S-TX) on a Vanessa Mann goal. Rush battled back and Josefina Mendizabal leveled the score before half. With five minutes to play, Mendizabal struck again and lifted her team to the 2-1 win.
 
Four goals by four players led U-16 Boys Club America Blue (CA-S) to its second win in as many days, beating Eagles FC United (EPA) 4-0. Holsten Valley FC (TN) overcame a 1-0 deficit to Imo's (MO) to tally its first win of the tournament with a 2-1 victory. Prince Kabadeh gave Imo's the 1-0 lead, but two goals from Chad Diminick gave Holsten Valley FC the victory.
 
Super Nova Elite (ID) doubled its win total today with a 2-0 victory over Penn legacy Black (EPA). Andrea Hill and Bethany Borup scored for Nova. In the other U-16 Girls game, Albion Hurricane FC (S-TX) won its first game of the weekend with a 2-1 win over Schaumberg Premier (IL). Daniela Colina and Taylor Gardner each scored to give AHFC a 2-0 lead before Alexa Ben got one back for Schaumberg premier in the 79th minute.
 
The two U-17 Boys games both finished with 1-1 scorelines, but featured plenty of late drama. A goal in the 6th minute by Brooke Moyer gave TSC FC Towamencin (EPA) a 1-0 lead over PQ Premier (CA-S). That lead held until stoppage time when PQ Premier was able to take advantage of a corner kick and Jonathan Perez buried the service to earn the 1-1 tie. Similarly, Indiana Invaders Black (IN) took a 1-0 lead over Arkansas Rush Nike (AR) on a 29th-minute goal by Ubaldo Diaz. With less than 10 minutes to play, Logan Hampton leveled for Rush as he followed up on a free kick and scored on the rebound.
 
The U-17 girls also played to two draws on day two. La Roca Premier DC (UT) tied Bucks Mont United Blazers (EPA) 1-1. Bucks Mont took a lead 30 minutes into the game when Megan Kelley found the net. McKenna Elliott tied the game on a 63rd-minute strike. In a hard-fought game, Ajax FC Chicago (IL) played to a 0-0 tie with Galaxy 94 Gold (GA). The bracket remains wide open as only one team has won a game and two teams have tallied two ties.
 
The final day of preliminary play begins at 8 a.m. tomorrow to determine which teams will compete for the title of 2011 US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup Champion.
