2019 US Youth Soccer – 16U Boys Championship Final – 8:15am – Field 6



contact and finally the foul called and it'll be beatings possession and now warning for tossing the ball in the air and delaying play not an official warning but just hey everybody let's cool it down a little bit Eldridge works it up the near sideline and across they've got a man there and the header just a little bit too high well done and placed well by Eldridge and its target on the right post got the header got a solid contact on it but not able to put it low enough and pass the crossbar and I believe the man that had the header with Joseph on Oggie who's the leading scorer for beetling in fact it is fana guy that was on the right side so no score here early on lbs a face is a strong shot and that one by Ramirez he is off to the side ball goes well beyond the nets and gets he will fetch it again they haven't marked the time on the scoreboard yet and maybe they won't through those get C ready for the start again he'll be knocking it into a win that's gusting upwards of 15 20 miles an hour mmm Perez on the ground not able to control it and beetling comes the other way now the takeaway Miranda in the middle and his shot goes high so each team in the last minute minute and a half has had a strong shot the header by beetling and now the long shot just a little bit high by Miranda and we remain scoreless beetling on the far side sent deep by zachary Ponza they'll play it right back to the foot of Oddi air Cerrone and possession to be linked possession time firmly in favor of LV si but ladling got the one deep offensive penetration across and a better chance for Joseph on eg but he just went high early early in the game shot by he's Vega got by the goalkeeper gets e but was waved off on and offsides Miranda on the side trying to feed the middle nice pass and the back kick they've got a chance here trying to find a way to turn the corner and all the way to the end line before being forced out as back defensively Ethan Sanders hey Zeus Vega with the Dr Sanders forces it across the goal line and so a corner kick coming up thank you I will take that corner opportunity again the wind is blowing in his favor toward the net abigai Gomes is posted down deep but they don't get it high and long enough to him he's taller by head than some of the players down there that's fed in and just a little bit off target as the cross nobody home for Aiden yumichika so breathing in a tie here a scoreless tie in the first staff meeting out of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and LV si from Las Vegas Nevada 16 and under youth soccer championship here at shield Soccer Complex Overland Park Kansas Miranda looking for a target for LVS a Miranda right back and well marked and taken away on the tackle Fon Iggy who had the hitter earlier in this half that just was a little bit high played good defense that time finding the lone man on the near side Ramirez working it into the middle and nobody home on the back kick taken away and swept out of trouble there by chat eldritch into the wind on side they're going deep and trying to find Marmol double-teamed and that someone comes back to midfield handled nicely and neatly goes on the attack back to the other way Alan Lopez in the middle giving it up to Vega Ramirez long ball across and just wide fisted out by the goalkeeper get see and still in play and get see we've got a little bit confused down there with a defensive back right there with him and had to make it play at the last minute just fisting it out to his left so no scores still here in the first half twenty minute halves again they're not keeping the score on this are the time rather on the scoreboard so we're guessing that we're nearing the middle of this first half Ramirez has dominated play really on the right side 4lbs a Appiah handling the ball far side giving it off and getting it right back again Aaron Aloha to Pia this play here's some pressure and the keeper helping out Cerrone had to come a long way to play that with his feet needling starting to feel a little bit more confident than it looked like they were early in this first half and no whistle there it'll be picked up deep by LDS a Alvie sa with the ball on the far side meet yumichika to midfield now Miranda sending it up the sidelines marked in the middle of the field here's the drive in the short pass Gomes couldn't do anything with it now Vega and again the save by get C so AJ gets e comes up big he has three saves now unofficially in this championship match in the first half and we remain scoreless thank you we'll take another corner kick and Vega again we'll have the wind helping him if he chooses to bend this toward the net and the whistle will stop play and that's gonna be a violation it looks like perhaps on Vega and make it looks like he is injured and is headed toward the side you are allowed seven two subs per half if you come out in the first half you may not reinter until the second half and they are going to take a moment to look at hey Zeus Vega and so as they have the injury we will okay and we're being told now that we are about half way through this first half as they attend to the injured Vega and he had taken the corner kick they blew the whistle as the ball was in the air and then his play stopped he started coming out toward the 18 yard box where you see him now and they will tend to him well we have a moment let's take a break from the 16 under us youth soccer championship at shield Soccer Complex in Overland Park Kansas still attending to the injury of Vega who took a corner kick and then apparently had a leg problem so they all attend to him the trainer is on site here as part of this tournament 16-under youth soccer championships here for the boys and it's lbs a and really i beetling scoreless here in the first half they tend to the injured player will tell you we have more soccer of course from this tournament championship date here in Kansas City Park Kansas one of the suburbs of Kansas City and I'm familiar with the area Kansas City is both in Kansas and E and Missouri and we're on the Kansas side this morning a beautiful day breezy but again temperatures in the mid 70s for this 16-under Boys youth soccer tournament Mike Nelson is our director I'm Rick Cole with our camera operators Cameron Hunter and Brian Galvin and it looks like they come off here and you hear the applause I would imagine from the far side where the lbs a fans are is Vega is gonna come off on the cart the goal kick coming from AJ get see you has made three saves so far this match the new player coming on the turf is Alexander kiss number 23 kiss takes the place of Vega and breed League will restart a dling and the whites VSA of the red knock deep yet she waiting for it just inside the 18 Andrew gets me they call him AJ captain play but right to the foot of Ramirez and along the sideline possession will belong to be linked and along the sidelines let's see which way this one goes it looks like it'll be LDS a possession VSA and beetling through this first task scoreless actually called a foul on that so the foul will go against beetling and the restart by Ramirez winded his back and a powerful stroke to drive the ball cross field cleared out of there by Reynolds deaths are Jade he goes vine here's a chance for beetling in out to challenge was her own so the nice runs her own though shuts it down deep was chased Thomas and Thomas hazard again momentarily but here's LDS a headed the other way Tapia and they feed inside to Miranda and a nice tackle beetling try to take it away and they do Sanders had the tackle initially and now the foul by LD SI and so beetling will restart and see the time remaining in this first half 16 under u.s. youth soccer championship at Scheels complex in Overland Park Kansas no one there to contest rock pickets and LV si though comes away with it David Ramirez back deep is mangey and he'll pass toward midfield Alexander kiss trying to swing it wide and there's gonna be a change of possession here foul called on LD SI and so beetling who missed on a header earlier in this game set up nicely on a cross from the left that was their best scoring opportunity and for LD SI they had a goal called back on a early shot by Vegas who since left the match with an injury he was offside on a play in which he put the ball past to keep her nice challenge of the tackle but to no avail Lopez came up with it and then sent it across the sideline feed link working in their offensive end and out turning it over Yama chica added for a moment they'll work it up the sidelines again you'll hear whistles from the adjacent field there's a match going on just behind the near sideline tackle attempt and a possible handball there that's what it is as Pia came in made a nice flight tackle but then the ball unfortunately bounced up off his arm Anthony the Falco two restarts into the wind and toward the 18 but nothing there and it looks like we got a foul called rights at the 18 step side of it Karen qalaat oh is our referee kiss gives it off in Romero's down the sideline and they have a player there but gets he's able to make a little bit of a move in front and take it away so another save by get see and he had to deal with some traffic in there but handled it cleanly and they're gonna call the handball at midfield on that fifty-fifty challenge so beetling benefits from the handball call for the second time closer to the same area where we saw it a moment ago and beat Lee taking a second to get it set up eat them Sanders eyeing possible targets and all the way into the box a header try again as surrounded was Brock Pickett and cleared out of there by LVS a team from Las Vegas in red the team from Pittsburgh is in white and blue this morning Cole men's along the far side giving it up for lb yesterday they've got a man down there but it's too high and once again it's keep her AJ gets he handling the ball he's been busy in this first half Cerrone on the other hand has faced a hitter that has got high and a ball rolling toward the 18 yard mark that he had to come out and help outside the box beetling trying to work it to midfield but stepping in front is mange good ball and in the middle of the offensive end copy of sending it wide swung and chased here by yama chica and did he save it apparently not so a gold kick coming up 16 and under u.s. youth soccer national championship each team has had a goal scoring opportunity but no score getsy being very careful to set it up he's at a tough time keeping the ball deep against that wind now the SA is dependent on the right side defender Amira's the switch yumichika and yeah Michiko will battle for it coming up hard was Ronald stets RJ couldn't handle it too now the ball across the goal again it looks like or is it gonna be a corner let's see it looks like it may be a corner well the young man that took the first two corner kicks is no longer in the match and so they'll go now and restart on the far side that'll gonna call a foul there good job shielding the ball by Ramirez but a high and soft shot is too high and too SOT another sub ready to come in so the match this will be beetling subbing and each team gets 7 subs in each half and coming into the match for beetling will be number 10 joseph boost over boost over coming into the match here and for the first half at least see who they subbed for and the man going out is anthony de falco so the Falco out and post over in for beetling physical on that 50/50 ball and they'll shield just enough so AJ gets he can't pick that up it was Ronald steps back there helping out his keeper hi-hop needling though still controls it and into that wind the ball just floats up there and plenty of time for the back defense angel man hey in this case able to cover it damage Chico on the far side Miranda in the midfield area he's been active yeah I'm a chica along the far side nice move to get free yeah I'm a chica with a centering pass and cleared away by beetling Shh Thomas able to send a deep and now the race on and a slow roller and saw Rome's gonna use his feet to clear that out across the sideline stirone used his feets in order to not get across the sideline that gives LDS a a chance to get back into shape defensively yeah I'm a chica a nice move just to get that ball downfield back on the defensive end for beetling steps our j-mart delivers it to midfield and beetling looking for the first goal of this match teams played once before and it was LDS a putting three on the board to win it furry nil and the pool play group play a turnover in lbs a tries to push forward and we have a whistle and that should give the ball let's see their gonna give it to beetling so lbs a the foul and beetling quickly trying to get something started and across the end line let's see what the call is here it's going to be a gold kick I believe this will be the first one for stirone they're Cerrone for the gold kick and more subs coming in Alexis Bravo is in for LVS a he wears a number 5 on his red jersey they call the foul on the side or what have they done and are allowing subs to come in or beetling 16 is in and that's Cyrus honey who's comes in number 16 for beetling Connie will play up front on the far side shipped over the top and nothing there beetling going from right to left and another foul on LVS a and now a little sent here and refereeing on the beetling side no score in this first half and beetling Midway and the offensive end will have a chance to restart in to try to go ahead 40 minute halves everybody getting sets for the penalty restart RJ stats and now they're gonna set the defenders and there's going to be a yellow card issued here on the movements by Gabriela Gabrielle Miranda Miranda picks up the yellow here before the restart and steps continues to waits for a chance to serve it into the box perhaps left post nobody there the SA trying to clear it but beetling is able to get it to midfield and a good challenge by Miranda and now another whistle has the LDS a player down and a foul called against beetling and the quick restart by LDS a in fact they may make them come back and restart in case Reston Rin Khan too started mange to Rin Khan yumichika across the stripe long run for Yama chika before giving it up and a chance here the shot deflected though and it's get see who makes another save five saves now unofficially forget see and none yet for Cerrone again unofficially and a tussle up the sideline and let's see which way this one goes it'll go against beetling on a push there along the side it's support defensively LD yesterday we'll try to get something going and out in the air contact and another foul is gonna be called on beetling got him with the leg while the player was in the air and a yellow card is issued to Chad Eldridge for dangerous play on the ground is yeah who collects himself another sub is on deck here for needling Willard Douglas will be the new player that comes into the match for beetling Douglas is in yeah while you're coming out to just chat eldridge lbs a trying to break onto the scoreboard with that restart with the wind at their back here late in the first half and that shot just wide by Ramirez so Ramirez handled the ball well made the move and released on the shop and just sent it wide again gets with the task of going to retrieve the soccer ball it'll be interesting to see when we get to the second half if the wind has made that much of a difference favoring LVS a here they seem to have dominated offensively for the most part beetling will have the same opportunity in the second half of course one pressure at midfield it's been very good for LDS a punch all the way down in the header attempt by Lopez but nobody home sure Ellie Jake's sure Ellie moves back defensively for beetling and again LVS a starting the other way Tapia who was shaking up a moment ago was able to corral it chase deep handled in front of the inline and the shots and just high in white again and apparently no contact defensively and so the gold kick coming up and gets me this time gets a little bit of help from spectator to get the ball back AJ get see I've got him for five of saves here in the first half and it's steel the SI trying to break on top they've got support in the middle but couldn't get the ball there and it appeared to be knocked out of bounds by beetling but apparently not another gold kick the ball picked off down that far sideline by Gomes and he's made the drive several times down in that area was looking for help in the middle but lost control couldn't get it into the middle get three into the wind and deep down the sideline they're trying to hit Willard Douglass down that sideline a little bit long for him Preston Rin Cohen was there and LVS a to midfield them knocked down and a foul is on beetling as down to the turf goes abigai gomes Alvey sa and beetling scoreless here late in the first half open in the middle Ramirez receives the pass and into the 18 but cleared out the Ramirez will handle it again very patient is this LVS 18 16 and under championship from Overland Park Kansas good defense my beetling and they take over but there's that pressure again by lbs a and this time right in the middle of it was Alex Bravo contacting with the change of possession that looks like a foul on beetling and we're at the end of the time in the first half but four minutes of stoppage time has been added we will play four minutes of stoppage time here the injured player is David Ramirez who's been so active in the midfield and on the near side and they'll take a moment to look at him here with four minutes of stoppage time being a put up two teams played last year in this championship game and it's the third straight championship appearance for idli yesterday lbs a advance to the championship they won four to three over Syracuse Development Academy of New York they went to a shootout to determine the winner in that game Phillip Phillips scored in the 16 minutes putting Syracuse ahead but then Allen Lopez two minutes later not in the game at one all Ramirez who's currently down on the turf but LDS a in the lead by a goal went into overtime LVS a 1/4 to 1 and kicks from the penalty spot after a scoreless 30 minute overtime needling played a tough match against FC Dallas winning two-to-one in the semi finals Martinez FC Dallas on the board ten minutes into the game nagi though netted equalizer for beetling in the 56 minute of that match and he scored the winning goal six minutes later and beetling is here in the finals for the third straight time after the penalty here is the restarts for LVS a as we're into stoppage time in the first half no score and finally the Yuri started sailing with the wind behind him and a little bit too long and a relatively easy play for AJ gets we didn't have a lot of opposition on the restart by onhe lbs a midfield trying to control it Tapia looking for a target they'll keep it though conservatively in the back too long and that attempt to push forward just getting past the wing on the right eye on the left rather and that'll be another goal kick coming up for get see again get she has been under fire he's made five saves and the ball definitely has been down at the wind end of the field if you will although it's a bit of a diagonal wind blowing from the far side to the near side but certainly in favor of LVS a in the first half and you can see that ball really hang up in the breeze and it's affecting balls like that as well going much shorter for beetling in that case and normal and beetling looking to put together maybe one more scoring drive before the end of stoppage time the LD SI has other plans and the team from Las Vegas moves from left to right 17 is Gomes on the far side and there it is the end of the first half that stop it's time has elapsed no score although each team had a good scoring opportunity of the first half a shot by Vega went in but he was ruled offside in the first minute of play and then a couple of minutes later a header by a beetling went high on a cross from the left and that's as close as we have gotten to a goal so no score in the first half of the 16 and under u.s. youth soccer championships and shield Soccer Complex in Overland Park Kansas we have reached halftime it was 1935 the year that Elvis and Sandy Koufax it was a year of many firsts 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 there as a meaning I think as tradition I think is extremely important for our competitions for all these groups that kind of emulate you make the wire cover when in the mcguire cup is huge just because all that history that comes along with the oldest trophy and youth sports period that's really big for us will write learning and the next chapter of the story this tournament it's great competition I mean you just have to work all these toons are belong here all these things worked [Applause] so the competition was fantastic and start to finish and when you get to play on 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 in 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 they should be exciting boy they were tough 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 kept fight and 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's 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 last we all want it the best feeling I've dreamed about this for a long time it's so exciting 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 stalker and a hole is a creates a family the bake sales car washes the raising of money brings all of us together and we are one and on to Nationals you 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 we played against some amazing girls and I think it was awesome it's really great to see by team like pulled together it's really work all right to be in a regional champions amazing it's once-in-a-lifetime type of opportunity for these guys it's healthy yesterday and beetling dead even now we flip sides and we'll see how the wind will affect this beetling team who played against the wind in the first half as we go to the second half in a scoreless tie beetling in whites and again they'll flip sides and be going from left to right and LVS a going in the opposite direction themes that came out of the first half the injury early on to his Usos Vega who was playing very well very aggressively and since he went out the two teams have been playing on very even levels and now beetling with that wind advantage that will help out you would think their keeper AJ gets me who made five saves in the first staff while the keeper for LVS a adi air Cerrone had no saves unofficially in the first step announcer own and his team will be going against the wind we are ready to get it started here for the second 40 minutes in the championship game in the 16 and under us youth soccer tournament all right director again is Mike Nelson and our camera operators of Brian Galvin and Cameron hunter and I am Rick Cole yesterday has controlled the ball on the ground for the most part and so we'll see if that will be as big a factor with the wind so say I've controlled the ball shaken up at the other end here early ideas Preston Wren cone and a foul be charged against beetling beetling in their third consecutive championship game they face missing LVS a team last year here in Kansas City and they faced them earlier in their now away we've got another man down I believe it's a difference man down on the far side but again for LVS a so the trainer's will come out and attend to the injured player and we just underway here in the second half we'll have a little bit of a pause in the action while they check out to the injury here early in the second half LDS a already has a sub on the sidelines getting ready to go the substitutes again if you came out in the first half you are eligible to play in the second half and if you come out in the second half you are done for regulation however if the match goes to overtime you can come back and play in the overtime in the first matchup between these two teams of three to nothing win in the group of play my LDS a Vega who was knocked out of this match with an injury early scored the first goal Gomes who's been playing on the left side for the most parts scored the second goal and Gabriel Miranda a midfielder scored just at the end of regulation a three to nothing win for LDS a so it has been a bit physical Vega already outs with an injury for el vsj he is one of the leading scorers in this tournament and this is I believe it is David Ramirez who has been so dominant on the backside on the wing and it is indeed Ramirez who they will take out and that would be a blow to LD sa if he cannot return for the overtime if there is one so Ramirez out and Vega out for LV sa two of their key players talking about leading scorers in the tournament actually dealings fun eggy leads all scorers but Gomez Lopez and Miranda close behind and now we've got a a little bit of a controversy on some rough play just outside the 18 and see who they have given it to but it's going to result in a free kick here for beetling and they try to jump out on top approximately 30 yards out in right in the middle of the field beetling will have an opportunity and they will be very careful in setting up the wall defensively Karen claw toe the referee making sure everybody is following all the protocols and procedures necessary but beetling has another golden opportunity here Cerrone and goal is ready driven and Cerrone makes his first save so the first official shot on goal by beetling they had a header that went way high early in the match Cerrone makes a nice move to pick up the low ball on a strong stroke and we remain scoreless LDS say will retain possession Eminem Perez is on the near side he will give away as the throw in will come to Aiden Yama chica and again a referee having a little bit of instructional time with the players as we await the throw in make him throw it in again here apparently not ready here in our microphones the wind is a factor in this game 15 to 20 miles an hour estimate and beetling came in there kind of roughly and it looks like it'll be a foul on Anthony DeFalco he was the one who took the brunt of the collision and they will take a moment his teammates to help him up and in midfield yeah Matt chica backs up to take the restart LVS a beetling scoreless here in the second half is underway and then half beetling moving from left to right with the wind at their back now I'm a chica a pretty good job to take it away couldn't control it and the quick throw in by beetling the turn and drive good battle along the side for possession and beetling will come up with it right there 4 lbs a was M&M Perez but he touched at last when beetling will work the sidelines with the throwing coming RJ steps to throw it in trapping and driving and a step but the ball just not in front too far in the first half if you're with us the ball definitely down on the right side of the field for good parts of the half with the wind pushing it in that direction and we'll see if it continues to be down at that end and favoring beetling the injuries though right now Story 4 lbs a they're a little beat-up they've had a couple of guys go out deep send Mike Gomez back to Gomez weird cone switching sides in LV yesterday working the ball on the dribble kiss on the far side and take it away and I play defensively Sanders came out in the first staff that is back in there's a slide tackle but LDS a keeps possession and I'll be yesterday looking for an advantage in the box and contacting the ball rolls across the goal line so LDS a controlling the ball with that short passing game of low passing game and they will have the restart coming up here it looks like corner kick coming rather and deep on the far side Miranda will take the quarter kit hanging high and up for grabs and again the goalkeeper get C under fire but is able to fight off the offensive forwards and grab that loose ball guess he sends it to midfield and Beyond and across the sideline Alvie s a moving into the breeze and in a scoreless game each team looking for that great opportunity teams have come close early on but ball possession has been the key to the game so far see how much of a toll the injuries take on LV sa here's beetling with a man in the middle trying to stay on side and the ball knocked away as there's another good play by Cerrone who's now put up a couple of nice plays in the second half driving down that left side with really nowhere to go fauna G looking for someone to pass through I think he thought his man was offside though and so he was forced to keep the ball end up being a gold kick apparently I'll follow G ah dear sir owning no BSA trying to go over the top and near the sidelines needling has been the team that has tried to go long in the air now they have the wind advantage Mattel VSA continues to dominate the possession time Lopes nearside looking for a teammate on the dribble though and he look to pull the trigger but it was knocked off course no BSA trying to fight for possession and there's a foul and that's going to give the ball back to LD SI now let's see they are I don't know if they stopped it or not if they did it was an extremely fast restart in the shot down low but gets T is equal to it's on the near post seven saves now for get see here the match and a tangle and referee Karen Calado will have to sort this one out their assistance today our Jordan Brown and Ariel roboam foul line beetling and so LVS a the team from las vegas descended long challenged and swept out of there and across the sideline synthetic turf fields here make the playing service very nice hasn't been any rain in the area to speak of during the week and today 75 degrees or so with a breeze lots of sunshine makes it very pleasant beetling will be rewarded with the possession here the throw in coming brian Galvan and Cameron hunter are our videographers today I'm Rick : der the direction of Mike Nelson an Overland Park Kansas at the Scheels Soccer Complex 16 and under national championship right back to the feed link and right back through the throw-in of RJ stats fabien with the ball from his defensive center position long ball deep and now they'll work the far side Pickett was the target and he has the ball again and under pressure no call there nice touch pass and the shot way wide as this couldn't Corral it sure Ellie taking the shot Jake goes wide to the right we remain scoreless who are in the second half if we go to overtime it'll be two 15-minute overtime periods played in their entirety so a 30-minute overtime session basically with no golden goal and then a shootouts if we're still tied and that floats well over the goal line and kick will be coming for Adi air Cerrone beetling out of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania their head coach is Rob Fabian Matt fauna gear app Rob Eldridge and Tracy post over are the assistants mana glioma Rhonda is the head coach for LVS a Aaron Yan Machiko the assistant contacted I'm gonna call it's against beetling and it did look as if Brock Pickett had the better of it on his offensive drive but they waited until the turnover and lbs ate the other way their game has been controlled short passing for the most part so Rome taking his time driving the ball beetling is there and again a tussle down on the side of the box and no call here comes el VSA out of the scrum and LVS a long over the top bit wide along the far sideline needling will have a throw-in and they look to jump on top here in a game that's been scoreless to this point Rita nothing was the score in the group play when these two teams met with LDS a taking the win moment to stretch on the far side here and we have another injury 4lbs a alongside player from beetling stretching on the far side they've got a man down on the turf on the far side and so we'll take another injury break here for both teams to perhaps get some water and the trainer's have been called out again no BSA has certainly had the worse part of the injury today they've lost a couple of key players so far in the game they got an appearance two guys that handled the ball a good deal when they were in the match they guy has been out since the first half Ramirez got injured early in the second half in the group play LD SI went through their three matches with two wins at a tie they scored eight goals gave up four and beetling finished second in the pool and the reason was that they played three matches and had a loss that was too LDS a they scored six gave up five months both teams have been perfect on defense so far no scores in this game the group also included Seattle United and Milwaukee Bavarians in the pool play and coming off will be gabriel Miranda Miranda gets a ride on the carts and the injury problems continue 4 lbs a they will go to the bench and coming in as Victor Moran so Miranda is in and will play on the offensive side here now switching and defensive back excuse me he's playing on top lbs a going the other way good trap Mike Gomez will take that deep ball and just try to maintain possession and they clear it to the sideline and saved by a charging Victor Moran man he defensively able to switch sides down a chica to Moran the cross in the middle they've got a man there and the cut of the fire just wide nice little cuts trying to set up the shot but it goes wide on the shot by out of gate Gomes who scored two goals in the tournament gomez did a nice job in setting himself up only to miss it so Gomez has an opportunity but nothing on the board yet get see he is ready to restart for team from Pittsburgh immediately 2003 we and I'm sure you can hear whipping around here there's a chance lbs a into that win but it's broken up on I step up tackle by Zachary Panza session back to lbs a again the wind favoring the team in white beetling they have not had a real significant if any kind of advantage with the wind on the yesterday keeping the ball short on the ground like that fast Moran taking a shot and saved at the last moment and then knocked in lbs a takes the lead trying to figure who these score was it came on the rebound after getsy had apparently had the ball in his hands and just looking at the celebration I'm wondering if it wasn't al unless we got the ball to go in in any case LVS a with a one to nothing lead we'll try to check on the scoring but for now we'll say it's Alan Lopez who picked up the leftovers and put it in the back of the net and again we do not have the time in front of us you can mark it on your viewing screen but it comes midway through this second half LVS a controlled things in the first half and here in the second half they haven't had as much possession time but they have been able to possess the ball a great deal back the other way neatly caught effort there down the sideline irj stats and he battles to the very end line and looks like it will be a corner coming up man let's see needling has not taken a corner yet in this match this will be their first opportunity and again the wind will blow the ball back toward the net if they wish to curl it that way Tony DeFalco will take the corner if you can see it they've got a stack on the far post and that's where they go at the header but right at Cerrone so sir oh now has made three saves after not having to make a save in the first half his team is up by one PSA scores and now the whistle will stop play and the directions again by Karen collado who has handled things well you think about referees and what their various jobs are at this level of course she's controlling play on the fields he's also doing in my opinion a pretty good job instructing which again not so much at the professional level is it an issue but and the amateur levels here and the 16 and under such a important part of the job to explain and to teach by the referee and she has done a good job of that the Falco to restart after a penalty beetling looking to tie its contact and then a long shot from the wing and that one will be off marked by eldritch and now a yellow card is drawn against beetling and it may well be against let's see it's like they gave the yellow card – Owen Mayer don't kick coming up one of the defensive backs take the kick maan he was the one that took the gold kick in the possession belongs to beetling temperature starting to rise a little bit close for the 80s I would guess here high temperatures will be in the 90s low 90s today in Kansas City they say we've been switched around just a little bit it was kind of catty corner a little bit blowing toward the near sideline definitely favoring the goal and the team moving left to right now it seems like it's either straight on or maybe even switch to diagonal in the opposite direction so it's changing a little bit but still favoring in this case beading and needling down one to nothing with possession shift but too far stents giving it off and Eldridge takes over after giving it up Eldridge on the drive with this team down by a goal and knocked off his line yesterday the other way it is so tough to penetrate against the LDS a you saw that a moment ago LTS a looking Lopez driving giving it off and out of the shots but again get C is equal to the task as he takes a soft shot on the ground and handles it shot taken by number 18 Victor Moran on that save by guess who he's got nine now unofficially saves and as a loud one goal tracked down deep sure le along the goal line and it will be a goal kick coming up sure le chasing it all the way down I in the tower today shooting the video Brian Galvin and Cameron Hunter both proud Kansas Wesleyan coyotes guys coyotes should never be up this I did you know that ground animals they're calling a foul evidently it still will be the possession of lbs a saved in for the moment by Moran but then he knocks it out saying beetling again will have possession does it bug you guys when they call Kansas Wesley of the Coyotes because it's coyote right does it bother you to be called a coyote sometimes bothers me I came from western Nebraska where there was always a big debate about that yesterday by a goal and they control ran on the far side but the past never does reach him now Michiko who has done that so well today able to escape the onrushing tackler here giving it up on the far side and tough to penetrate against feeling this time comes the other way Gudrun beetling is down by a goal and I slide tackle to knock it away numbers on the back not on the front so it's hard to see at the moment I ran feeding into the middle man that made the tackle what the far side was Gomez who's primary scorer and that one has swept away and belongs to two LDS 8lbs a leads and one to nothing left over goal little reflection Gomez were crediting for excuse me Lopez were crediting for it at the moment until we're corrected shot stopped by get see and then as play continued on the right side a score it's 40 beating trying to get back into it looking for the equalizer here but LDS a has been tough on defense man he able to handle it back defensively and they have leaned on those defensive backs 50 ball contested and now it's Gomez it's down and shaken up plain t continues beetling looking for an opening Moran is there and he leaves it dangerously in the top of the box but able to be cleared away and lbs a will get back on defense beetling looking for the equalizer team has had so much success in reaching three state championship games but they're down by a goal here in this championship game in the 16 and under u.s. youth soccer championships at Scheels Soccer Complex in Kansas chance for beetling but take it away on a drive there by fauna ghee – eggy rather pardon me good ball down the sideline picket double-teamed he's got defenders all around him and it looks like it's going to be a throw-in so pick it surrounded but manages to earn a throw-in deep down the sideline or they're calling a foul now so it'll be a restart kick not the corner but essentially the same thing here and we'll see what beetling can do with the set-piece wind will blow it toward the goal a hand on it by Cerrone trying to keep it alive and they're able to do so that hangs in the air and Cerrone knocking it down playing it safe for saves for Cerrone actually I think you could give him another one on top of that make it five he made the one-handed save and then that floater that was on frame throw-in for bead like time grows short for the team from Pittsburgh they're down by a goal on putback by Alan Lopez well they're putting eight minutes of stoppage time on or there's eight minutes left okay eight minutes left thank you time is not on our scoreboard but is on your scoreboard as you're viewing and a whistle but not apparently on this field they play on always amazed me and these multi events venues the players just are able to tune in on the whistle that controls them and not stuff going on around them that's been the case today with beetling and LVS a commentators though are distracted by loud noises and bright objects not on this turn it'll look Lopez trying to make something happen for LVS a and across the sidelines the throw-in will come from Gomez abigai Gomez will now give it up and coming to make the throw in on the sideline bring up a defense nicholas de Lyonne centered but deflected still loose a drive got a chance for the shot and it's in and it's 2 to nothing Aaron Aloha yeah with the goal to PS scores the second goal in lbs a with under eight minutes to play here in solid position to win a see that under national championship no doubt about that one tupaea turn it loose and from that right-wing he makes it to nil well BSA against the wind and scored both of their goals and beetling early in a hole here they're gonna go to the bench and try to spark some things up here late in this match Joseph boost over is in coming out of the lineup Jake Cirelli and beetling has some ground to make up here down to nil the first goal again not official Alan Lopes scored it we think for LVS a and the second goal pretty clearly was Aaron – p.m. – nothing LTS a so interesting to watch in the last Women's Cup when the US team had a lead and they kicked it a lot use those five defensive backs in a line to shut down the opponent that's kind of a situation that lbs a is in here they can play very deliberately they can play very much to eat the clock if they choose to another sub for beetling entering the matches cyrus Connie and coming out is number eight rock picket nicely done there take it away but I believe we're going to have a foul is coming away with the ball with LDS a I'm an emperors it's called for the foul however and here comes the restart Ronald steps RJ will take to restart stets waiting they're setting it carefully and that a lot of advantage taken there on the opportunity by beetling however they retain possession defended well in the air needling looking to get back into this match but down by two turning and looking on the near side let's again though lbs a equal to the challenge yumichika sending it to moran and just knocking it along and apparently on the sidelines at some point and to throw incoming again a sub on the LVS a side and this time Carlos Castro is coming in they called a foul is the restart they're waiting for a step down so it was a foul on the side and not over the touchline yeah Machiko will be made to pause here as they get the sub Ian and Castro now into the game they're wearing number 12 for LD SI also e in white coming in is Connie who tried to enter I believe a moment ago and he is now into the match for belittling down to nil here no BSA restarts into their offensive end ran nice job letting it go and then the cross link is there eldritch midfield volley but not effective lbs a comes the other way certainly to their advantage here Alex just Bravo controlling it's lost possession that ball through and serrano is gonna get there first our own rather on the air Cerrone has made five saves unofficially AJ gets e has not been challenged a lot in the second half has given up two goals made eight make it nine saves unofficially yet so he has been challenged through the day by lbs a and they finally slipped a couple of goals past him here in the second half scoreless at halftime pressure still put on Castro or lbs a was down there but turned the other way Fabian coming down the far sideline now I had the Maggie taking it to the 18 extended five minutes of stoppage time has been put up as we've reached the end of 40 minutes and five minutes of stoppage time is out it lbs a leading it to nothing these two teams played last year in the finals familiar with each other ran weights little pass inside and a chance to make it 3 nothing the deflection and no support or at least a little bit late arriving just coming in hard on the deflected ball was number 5 Bravo the shop taken by Tapia who scored the second goal in the match deflected by get see and then Bravo couldn't quite reach the deflection into the match for LVS a is Lorenzo Mejia Lorenzo McKee and number H is in for LV now stay here late in this match and out comes navigate Gomes one of the leading scorers of the tournament discussing it's a corner or penalty or what's going on here in lbs a is going to take full advantage of the time given them with now stoppage time in effect they are taking plenty of time and they're going to give it yellow card I guess for a delay of game we're stretching the rule maybe we'll call it and that's exactly what happens as Moran is ready to take the corner serves it pretty nicely and on the header gets e is there again for his tenth safe but to turn I think he's allowed two goals at LV si is on their way to a national championship in 16 and under boys soccer road feeding it out on hey to the middle in just eating more time off the clock is lvsd lbs a excuse me and a whistle will give the ball right back to be dling dling has not been able to take advantage of the wind that's at their back LV SC has controlled the ball scored on a rebound and on a shot from the right wing and now again some instruction from Karen Calado this match and beetling again is take the restart as soon as their latitude fabien waiting now ready needling with the possession final moments sticking by here and again the defense is therefore LVS a and company that ball back to their keeper who's gonna eat some more time up her own is able to keep the ball out of harm's way the slide tackle out of bounds on a slide there by number four is a creep and them the SA again will take their time and then bring up with the defensive back down but she can to make the throw in eldritch knocking along with the faintest of chances for a goal and Cerrone will make sure there is no goal here late in the second half – nothing LV si as we near the end of our match we want to thank director Mike Nelson and our camera operators Cameron Hunter and Brian Galvin and it looks like it's going to be LVS a claiming the 16 and under boys championship and the team in red can do pretty much as they please here in terms of control yes a it's gonna go through this tournament undefeated they did have one tie and so this would be their really fourth win in the tournament overall semifinal win two wins and group play and the time and again the time just the elapsing year as the longest four minutes of stoppage that I've seen for a while continues and there is the whistle your champions LVS a out of Las Vegas Nevada they'll celebrate where they succeeded under u.s. youth soccer national championship congratulations new head coach Manlio Miranda and assistant coach Aaron Niamh chica and the lbs a team from Las Vegas Nevada they win a two nil on goals unofficially by Ellen Lopez and then later in the match by Aaron Tapia they shutouts beetling out of Pittsburg Pennsylvania to nil I'm Rick Cole thank you for joining us for the 16 and under us youth soccer national championship at shield Soccer Complex in Overland Park Kansas it was 1935 the year that Elvis and Sandy Koufax it was a year of many firsts 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 youthful competition for young men in the United States the cup was later named the
