2019 US Youth Soccer – 14U Girls Championship Final – 7:40am – Field 4



including the first NFL draft the first Monopoly board game went on sale Social Security began and Babe Ruth hit his last home run in addition to these milestones the National Junior Challenge Cup was founded in 1935 offering a youth competition for young men in the United States the cup was later named the James P McGuire Cup after the late US Soccer president who himself was quite a standout in his earlier days winning the US Open Cup in 1929 McGuire would lead US Soccer and earn an international reputation as an excellent leader the firm acquired Cup was started 1935 it was the only Cup that the United States Soccer Federation had for youth players and it was a very good competition and I can tell you I mean it was the highlight of my soccer career to be a champion in 1954 this storied Cup now the oldest trophy in youth sport it has a history as a meaning I think as tradition I think it's extremely important for our competitions for all these groups that kind of emulates the mother water cup when in the mcguire cup is huge just because all that history that comes along with the oldest trophy and and youth sports period that's really big for us u.s. youth soccer has impacted my life by taking over I mean it's been a very good experience a lot of like life skills and lessons and how to take on certain things and it's really made a big impact hey everybody here was amazing wait again some amazing girls and I think it was awesome it's really great to see my team like cool together to really work hard to be on a regional champions amazing it's once-in-a-lifetime type of opportunity for these guys I'm really excited for these girls with this confidence to go to Nationals and just test ourselves against great competition we made it to Nationals and that was amazing because we were one of the best I think at the time was the four teams it was a round-robin actually so the best four teams in the whole nation and so we thought we were just the next best thing since sliced bread and I think that playing in that tournament was so surreal because you saw you played against other club teams that were so good and and at the same level as you that you you know don't necessarily always get the chance or opportunity to play against which was so great for us because we're like wow these girls are at like just as good as us if not better and we have to compete at the highest level and play these three games or thought yeah I was around Robins wood before but still that just reminds me of how competitive I was and my teammates were at that age which also I think helped me get to the next level in being that competitive at the club level I mean has only helped me you know continue to grow a competitive spirit and Louisville that I'm playing at right now the national championships was really really special I think that was like the biggest thing I had really won and that's kind of for youth soccer growing up that was kind of the ultimate prize and I think we were always super ambitious and in achieving that and to have that happen and I think what's so special about youth soccer is that it's really your family the girls that you grow up with become like your sisters and and you do everything and there's just like such a strong camaraderie there so to play with the team that you play for for a while with and with these girls it's a very special feeling to to win something those were really great moments because at such a young age I feel like I was competing for something and really working hard to you know perform for my team and it was no longer just about you know whatever the result is is the result I mean at the end of the day you know you win some you lose some but that was probably the moments that I was like whoa we got a win we got a state championship on our hands that we can actually bring home and I think those are really cool moments because you know you remember a lot of the times that you win you know you you try to remember the losses as well because you learn from them but at the same time you you want to remember the wins that you have so state championships were definitely a really important part of my memory eras our state Cup was fun my team is very competitive I mean we had a lot of competition as well but I can't remember how many we want maybe nine I think is what we counted with with our team which which made it so much fun that was always like the big goal at the end is winds-day Cup go to regionals and go to Nationals and we always fall short going to Nationals so it still hurts today to even talk about but I had so much fun and in those tournaments and my team was what made it even 10 times better be part of I get to play now in front of huge crowds and with all this spotlight and attention and I don't think I'll ever have that feeling that I did going through my you 14 National Championship I remember winning state Cup I can tell you how I scored what the score was I remember going to Hawaii that was our regionals region 4 and I remember that national championship and I think that it stays with me so much because it was about camaraderie it was about growing and learning who we were and you know making these lifelong bonds this tournament it's great competition I mean you just have to work all these teams are belong here all these things work together so the competition was fantastic and start to finish and when you get to play in a facility like this it makes it even more worthwhile traveling there six and a half hours to get here we sacrifice a lot time and like our summer so I really think that if we keep with that we'll be on pace for a great time of Nationals an overall great performance came out in the second half was able to close it out and get that regional victory that we were that we wanted benefits this level huge the college exposures second-to-none for these guys are all able to get recruited and achieve the goals that they want to and they set out to actually sign up to play club sports and make a team they're able to get those opportunities I think having something to play for is a real benefit to these goals not just showcases it's competition everyone wants to win that you play competitive sports because you want to win well this is the top league in the country all the best teams the best competition and that's what you want for your kids you know you wanted to work hard and achieve success against the best so it should be exciting boy they were tough they're they they were a tough team and they had a lot of speed and so we weren't ready for that and they kept fighting and kept fighting and kept fighting we made a few mistakes in the back and then they came back and tied it up you know with seven eight minutes left in the game but it was it was a battle there is very strong competitive team it's a sweet victory because they really deserve it the girls were tired they were they were weak and they dug really deep they really did they really really fought for it everyone wants it so bad that we all get better from each other no matter the winner the loss we all want it the best feeling I've dreamed about this for a long time it's so excited to be here very tough game we had to go into extra time to decide the the champion and our boys stuck it to the end and we're able to come out with a victory today it's just an amazing feeling knowing yeah you you scored the winning goal for the team you you work so hard for this we all deserve this regionals is is where you'll find the best state champions come in and they give you a run for your money I think soccer and the whole is a creates a family the bake sales car washes the raising of money it brings all of us together and we are one and on to Nationals my name is Tony McManus we are the oh one lady Lobos rush out of Memphis Tennessee you know we were we were here in the finals last year unfortunately did not did not finish it out but that gave us a little bit of motivation going into this year it's been crazy and it's just been like really hard because everybody here is so good and everybody is good could say when there's steak off and so are other ways to get in and so it's been really difficult but we pushed through and we were able to come out on top for us is a little difficult because we work with a lot of underprivileged kids because I can't afford to really play a big club so we're very small we haven't been around very long which is we put in a lot of work with the kids we picked them up we've been working with these guys you know just try to give them a future and there's something to look forward to get them out the streets put them in a place where they can come and just have fun meet other kids and train hard and just give them a goal whether it's college or to the next level so we've been very successful at doing that at this level so it's just it's been a great process although folks

game one nil to defeat her soccer club just like that a picture-perfect counter-attack by the club from Texas off of that corner kick fantastic run there by Theresa McCullough I believe in the midfield who slid that ball in towards weddington and cool as you like with defenders breathing down her neck slides her shot there into the left corner we have a 1 nil game early on here in this under 14 girls national championship match aloof usable look to respond immediately trying to get it up the field there but cut out by we're of defeatist and she will feed it back there to her

career to be a champion in 1954 this storied Cup now the oldest trophy in youth sport it has a history as a meaning I think as tradition I think it's extremely important for our competitions for all these groups that kind of emulate the Maguire Cup when in the Maguire Cup is huge just because all that history that comes along with all this trophy and youth sports period that's really big for us [Applause] u.s. youth soccer has impacted my life by taking over I mean it's been a very good experience a lot of like life skills and lessons and how to take on certain things and it's really made a big impact hey everybody here was amazing wait again some amazing girls and I think it was awesome it's really great to see by team like pull together to really work hard to be on a regional champions amazing it's once-in-a-lifetime type of opportunity for these guys I'm really excited for these girls with this confidence to go to Nationals and just test ourselves against great competition we managed to Nationals and that was amazing because we were one of the best I think at the time was of four teams it was a round-robin actually so the best four teams in the whole nation and so we thought we were just the next best thing since sliced bread and I think that playing in that tournament was so surreal because you saw you played against other club teams that were so good and and at the same level as you that you you know don't necessarily always get the chance or opportunity to play against which was so great for us because we're like wow these girls are at like just as good as if not better and we have to compete at the highest level and play these three games or thought yeah I was around Robin's wood before but still that just reminds me of how competitive I was in my teammates were at that age which also I think helped me get to the next level and being that competitive at the club level I mean has only helped me you know continue to grow a competitive spirit and love all that I'm playing on right now the national championship it was really really special I think that was like the biggest thing I had really won and that's kind of for you soccer growing up but was kind of the ultimate prize and I think we were always super ambitious in in achieving that and to have that happen and I think what's so special about youth soccer is that it's really your family the the girls that you grow up with become like your sisters and and you do everything and there's just like such a strong camaraderie there so to play with a team that you play for for a while with and with these girls it's a very special feeling to to win something those were really great moments because at such a young age I feel like I was competing for something and really working hard to you know perform for my team and it was no longer just about you know whatever the result is is the result I mean at the end of the day you know you win some you lose some but that was probably the moments that I was like whoa we got a win we got a state championship on our hands that we can actually bring home and I think those are really cool moments because you know you remember a lot of the times that you win you know you you try to remember the losses as well because you do learn from them but at the same time you you want to remember the wins that you have so state championships we're definitely a really important part of my memory eras is our state Cup was fun my team is very competitive I mean we had a lot of competition as well but I can't remember how many we want maybe nine I think is what we counted with with our team which which made it so much fun that was always like the big goal at the end is Wednesday Cup go to regionals and go to Nationals and we always fall short going to Nationals so it still hurts today to even talk about but I had so much fun and in those tournaments and my team was what made it even 10 times better to be a part of I get to play now in front of huge crowds and with all this spotlight and attention and I don't think I'll ever have that feeling that I did going through my you 14 national championship I remember winning state Cup I can tell you how I scored what the score was I remember going to Hawaii that was our regionals region for and I remember that national championship and I think that it stays with me so much because it was about camaraderie it was about growing and learning we were and you know making these lifelong bonds this tournament it's great competition I mean you just have to work all these teams are belong here all these things work so the competition was fantastic and start to finish and when you get to plan a facility like this makes it even more worthwhile traveling the six and a half hours to get here we sacrifice a lot time hello folks and welcome back here to field forth the shield Soccer Complex it's gonna be the second half coming up here the other 14 girls national championship game the score at
