A day two 3-0 win over Bethesda Threat (MD) has PVSC Exiles Black (CA-S) sitting at the top of the Under-14 girls' standings as they enter the final day of preliminary games on Saturday. Bethesda shares a 1-1-0 record with Freedom Soccer Club Blue (OH-S). Freedom's first win, 1-0, came today over Forsyth Fusion 96 Gold (GA).

The Under-15 Girls Freedom Soccer Club Blue (OH-S) slated another in the win column with a 2-1 victory over Miami Lakes Soccer Club (FL).

The Under-16 Girls St. Louis Scott Gallagher Red (MO) and AR Rush Nike 94 (AR) knotted 1-1 with a Gallagher goal by Lauren Josten in the 30th and Julia Pettit's Rush goal in the 53rd minute.

Central went up 2-0 with 2nd and 21st minute goals by Lindsay Kostner and Marissa Schults, then Fusion's Olivia Annee put one on the board in the 45th, but it was Central that summed up the win with Kostner's second in the 64th.
