ORLANDO, Fla. (December 27, 2010) -- Top talent from US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) kicked off competition in the US Youth Soccer ODP Super Group at Disney's Soccer Showcase presented by the Chelsea Football Club in Orlando, Fla. today. 

The sidelines were packed with collegiate and National Team scouts as the showcase event is among the top recruiting tournaments in the country. This year, Disney's Soccer Showcase will play host to 550 boys' and girls' teams along with the eight Super Group teams and more than 800 collegiate coaches.

In 1994 action, Region III was the only team to score today as they took down Region II 1-0. In the 70th minute, Marlon Hairston sent a dangerous cross into the box that the Region II defenders failed to deal with and deflected in for the lone goal.

Region IV and Region I could not be separated in the other 1994 game as they ended 0-0. Region I keeper Alexander Bucella kept his team in the game in the 67th minute when he saved a point blank shot by Region IV's Nicholas Downs.

The 1995 Region III Boys also prevailed in a 2-0 win versus Region II. Ricardo Castro Ramos scored the winner in just the 8th minute when he put away a driven cross from Luis Betancur-Castro. Jacob Garza added an insurance goal in the 44th on a penalty kick.

A 70th minute goal from Kelvin Centeno gave 1995 Region I the 1-0 victory over Region IV. Coming in from the left side, Centeno made a couple moves to slide by defenders before finally beating the Region IV keeper and finishing for the only goal of the game.

Players in the 1994 and 1995 age groups will compete in preliminary games December 27-29 and seeding will be held December 30.

The US Youth Soccer ODP Interregional Super Group includes US Youth Soccer ODP regional teams in the 1994 and 1995 age groups. 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.
