US Youth Soccer Celebrates 65 Alumnae in 2022 Women’s College Cup

December 8, 2022 01:00 PM


FRISCO, Texas (Dec. 8, 2022) - UCLA’s stunning comeback over North Carolina during the 2022 NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Championship on Monday night earned the storied program its second National Championship in school history.

As the final whistle blew, the Bruins -- and their 17 US Youth Soccer (USYS) alumnae -- had cemented a place in the record books.

Avery Patterson, a former National League and Olympic Development Program (ODP) member, as well as a 2017 Southern Regional Champion, gave the Tar Heels a commanding lead after scoring two goals in the second half.

UCLA showed its mettle by answering back, with ODP alumna Sunshine Fontes providing the assist to Lexi Wright that started the comeback. Reilyn Turner, the 2016 USYS National Championships 13U Golden Ball winner, brought the two sides level in the game’s dying seconds with a header from a corner kick.

Maricarmen Reyes scored the winning goal for the Bruins in double overtime to cap off the historic win.

The 2022 NCAA Women’s Soccer Tournament was a tremendous showing of the talent at the collegiate level, and US Youth Soccer saw 65 of its alumnae compete at the College Cup.
