today's match is brought to you by AE engine americaneagle.com bag tags target Chipotle Mexican Grill the brand Dick's Sporting Goods MLS NCSA Nike+ coaching Alliance premier international tours Soccer Shots sun-maid ta petrol United Soccer Coaches US Soccer Federation Wilson trophy company 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 and actually it was 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 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 I thought yeah I was around Robin Hood 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 competitive spirit and love all that I'm playing at 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 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 could 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 we 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 were definitely a really important part of my memory eras our state Cup was fun my team was 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 our team which which made it so much fun that was always like the big goal at the end is win stake up go to regionals and go to Nationals and we always fell short going to Nationals so it still hurts today they even talked about but I had so much fun and in those tournaments and my team was what made it even ten 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 four 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 you you hello everyone and welcome to shields Overland Park Soccer Complex here in Overland Park Kansas side of the 2019 USU soccer national championships and that's exactly what we're playing for this morning the Don Grier cup the national championship trophy awarded to the 17 and under age group it's going to be a solar out of dalr Texas headed up by Diego Castro and they are

out of Dallas ended up first in their group with a record of 2o & 1 and defeating the Michigan Jaguars 4 to 3 in the semi finals on the flip side Arlington Soccer Academy finished first in their group as well finishing also with an identical 200 in one record and defeating Baltimore Celtic by a score of two nil though the two teams gather around their sidelines as they come together for the final time before a national championship is decided the ball is at center field and we are just about ready to get things kicked off here this morning with them game time scheduled to happen at 7:15 it's gonna be a little bit tight on that one but it should be a good contest between these two teams both of them stout defensively and a decent amount of offensive firepower so it's going to be one of those battles of will to see who can end up victorious by the final whistle 45 minute halves in this age group Arlington beheading right to left your starting goalkeeper for Arlington Soccer Academy is going to be Jonathan Lee and on the flip side it is going to be Jackson Levitt or solar you starting off with possession it's gonna be solar once again dressed in the white referee checks the clock blows the whistle and we're underway in possession quickly on it is furch comes to the near sideline rodriguez he's forced to drop it back after good early pressure and then a steal by Arlington Motor Bell gave it all the way back sent upfield by pine looking towards the corner of the box Goodwin not too much space available has to drop it back pine took it right back into pressure that was actually Joseph's core the leading scorer for Arlington who's got four goals to his name and verbally committed to the College of William and Mary you popping one over the top sends it into the box finds his man laces it out front switch back over to the nearside motor Bell and her was looking for Corbin intercepted by furch into touch welcome you in this morning whether you're watching out east or down south coming to you from the Kansas City area we've had great weather throughout this tournament continuing here today the Sun obviously coming right into your living rooms but other than that beautiful morning for a national championship game Mora bell sends it up towards the left wing but that's got too much pace on it not enough to roll out over the end line though solar popping it through the middle Flores gives it back Rodriguez set up back for Flores but the past wasn't quite on say that so I take enough you drop back by Pope you glass up the sideline Rodriguez boss again chance to look up field for Albert the farside Pope basis went up the sidelines so stay tough with a couple moves drops it back where's the corner of the box Flores give it up hope now Arlington makes a steal going off the other direction given right back whoo Oh laid it off all over the top intending that one for so sata2 many defenders Arlington regaining possession trying to slow things down Goodwyn long ball over the top running onto it Arlington with a chance and they put it over the bar not a bad idea to take a shot from that distance especially here in the early going perhaps test leavening goal but with the ball running away it was difficult to keep downward you you headed back the other way in the midfield crunching tackle takes down herbage he's a little bit shaken up but the foul is given you you you numbers pushing forward in blue a roofie will take the free kick all towards the edge of the box dealt with furch sends it away so say to us stepped in guru feet comes back you lobbed up over the top trying to run on to it and unsuccessful was core coach DeSousa telling his team he wants more shape solar switching it up bring it through the middle slightly to the left Flores ended it off looking for a return pass over the top you you you you faced through the middle Arlington trying to find something over on the wing so say Duff couldn't bring it down under control again looking for the far wing eating there first though as Albert somewhat stiff wind going mostly right-to-left you Leavitt puts it back towards the middle third losing the 50/50 bar though who all coming back sees it passed around him motor Bell or about driving up towards the 18 looking for core drops it for verbage you you intercepted Abell pops one in that's easy for Leavitt both teams trying the long ball here not too much in the way of solid passing through the midfield that one too heavy off the touch from Jackson Castro through the middle core takes a bit of a shoulder there from blasts through the middle so seda under the nearside Rodriguez looking for the through ball again a little too direct played in the touch here on the near sideline this goes to show the day you can't always tell who's going to make it to these national finals both of these teams champions in their own right but National League champions neither one won their regional solar where the national league white champions coming in with a record of 5 1 and Oh National League red champions for Arlington sa picking up a little bit of pace through the midfield Goodwin steps on it cuts over to the right from the midfield circle little touch paths they were trying to get it to joke or had nothing doing so far you you you you very vocal bench right now for Arlington si staff continually yelling out instructions for their team Rodrigues for solar Luo sasada and then Flores laura's again from the edge of the box earns as to pull it back hope you Luo Barnes again laura's they switch it up sending it here to the nearside furch brings it down the touchline Rodriguez cuts in towards the middle the pass from Luo goes out wide up top now for so SATA that was actually Flores cutting instead so SATA up towards the top of the box Burbage will let it run into touch Barnes from the far wing is solar starting to build up the possession numbers off to the left now chance to push forward for munos you touch so it'll be a throw in solar pushing forward a little bit more each thrust up the field but still nothing really troubling the goalkeeper yet is that one deflect it out it'll be a corner kick staggered starts for everybody here this morning so we are the second game to get off around this sub Soccer Complex is there's a several fields going on throughout the day we'll be bringing you coverage on six different fields field number one in the United we're starting up field number one 17 and under here well do the corner cake all over again be sure to stay tuned after our contest it will be on a different stream but it'll be on this same youtube network turbo Sports Group will be bringing you live coverage of the trophy presentations this one just flashed over the goal driving in was so setup but he couldn't quite get the head on to it the way that he would have liked he goes short with the goal kick Hine switches it up you hiding again in control from the centre back Dickens was calling for it but he was unaware that he had a defender right on his back pine has it again pressure coming again they lob it over the top trying to get those runs through the middle Burbage was able to get a little touch onto it getting it towards the box and then that went slipping out of the fingers of Levitt and the wind caught it just a little bit a bell seize it run out throwing remains with the Arlington core level to muscle his way down towards the end line it deflected back off of him though so it'll be a goal kick for solar you sixteenth minute to play in a scoreless first half you Albert switching it up near side for Blas search trying to set it up the Lila Rodriguez stepping in front was more a bell quick OneTouch passes looking for core defender was too close that the corner kick is surrendered so a chance to do something off the set piece now for Arlington sa burbage trying to go for the back post a little closer to the penalty spot furch stepped up to for Barnes you you right now my core a little heavy on the touch allows solar to gain control but they give it right back 50/50 ball official says the elbow came up though you Lag went up offside was the call so sada came back from an offside position a little bit about it in the open and both these teams pretty good offensively it score able to save it so it comes in [Applause] five goals during the group stage seven to those teams going to drop shot over there group solar finished with a 3-2 win over Baltimore day one and a nil nil draw with it Washington here on the second NSA drew 1-1 on day one and then had two straight victories Reno okay energy law res was spread around our coach got emailed for asking for players and then he emailed every class and we were here because we're pointing us lt40 Flores we just finished this link so you can have some underneath it everybody inside the ball was game and side his Burbidge driving into and then that was sent away water Bell we did wells around the defender it's away from the grab as well Laura Bell sends it in towards the six-yard box looking for core that have been too much curl on it took it right in the fan Flores was twisted around is Barnes say it out Flores drop it back Burch I'm in here witness they tried to stretch the defense out a little bit more Rodriguez muñoz was driving forward that dinner overall it's a bag who definitely has two older boys over it say that Flores defense right on his back and another ground ball we've had a really young substitutions coming in now several floors we have a since going to only make one coming into the game for the solar is going to be Jackson Castro I usually just follow the loss of us but with a butcher unless you want to Harvey Castro one substitution for Arlington is going to be able to say Alvarado sets up up top so he's gonna give our lead in another attacking option he comes into this contest with one gold dredge named Jackson Castro going to step up the losers take the free kick curls towards the far side of the six yard area but said away down by butcher lawrence butcher again yeah Burbage pick it up speed through the midfield sends it over to the right of the circle and then gets a return pass towards the signing space up front diving defensive butcher in touch so you wouldn't do it again for a kick-out coming for Arlington si trying to utilize the set-piece here spread out though a lot of times you'll see that you start off in a big group and then run out flash towards goal with the header but it's feared wide so a chance to put it back in good with it two defenders around him keeps it tight to his foot though stumbling a little bit spun around the red Rodriguez was able to make the claim with the giveaway in the Box sends it right topped over the top and the flag goes up offside is call but the official haven't an extra word as there was a lot of contact and that link challenge that came after the whistle doesn't look like any card will be brandished so good officiating just a situation that tell the player that that was basically unnecessary but it's also on the flip side like you can go home for three months or two months but sort of expensive to go home for me so another reason why I just do off jobs like this from their bench this butcher gets piece of that one diving out was let it didn't matter my flag was up once more coaches yell out from the bench have we made it to a national final find themselves on the attack here for many more Mel and just a bit to hear their large Soccer Complex you several fields going on right now the others will try to do our best to let you know what's going on butcher again Rodriguez Flores to make the run out of the way that's what's been about Kansas City running on to it got too much in the way of health for slices in back out towards the penalty spot settle down my daddy was there run out from the video back to it's good as therapeutic we get further up overlapping run but the return pass is not really available whereas all the way back to the circle butcher saw the place called Westport it's like a funky little too out of control on some of these runs downtown there's like Forbes both of these teams really it said they're tough sledding in terms of creating quality opportunities both teams have had a good amount of possession then push forward with the eagerness that it's just been that final connecting ball that hasn't necessarily been on just yet cool maybe I submitted to play Arlington with the free kick just north of the half that's cool those getting this one into the box header came in skying up to get a visa that one was more about yes she's able to keep it in along the touch line Laura Bell saw that reentry coming Monday with the head strolling through the midfield oh so say this sets it up Rodriguez sliding shower where was he from a disability but the ball was gay is he still here caught a little bit upset saying that he left that run for a reason so he went fishing with you with the touch on the way out so bad continue to try to stretch out this darlings a team but they're very good at staying compact while still putting on a little bit of pressure comes up nationalities but not really Portuguese in the box for knives away by a diving defensive entry Jackson planet intuitive appeal those already scored and two of the girls finals boys finals right now they get connecting on the header but Fender was there to throw it off just enough power and generated and put it on goal again looking over the top balls game planning today so far the track again butchered outside the circle so to say that we collect our wing now come on kicker the ball went all the way out of the facilities so we'll get a new one in there go short with it Harvey Castro sets it up opt in so SATA take it down to the box referee says no not enough contact from pine do the corner kick again I swear we've watched better make the corner kick attempt this time because it went 19 right footers swing it in towards goal for that near post too many defenders there so to stay in the sold off but throwing this time butcher Castro saw run out he ran out of space along the touchline one by Luo I'm just trying to no skins we had an overtime yesterday forcing rounds of Pecos twelve and one thing was to zero usually could win it twice on penalties and they it – we have a behind steps into that one Ceyda goes outside Castro in towards the box the shot comes in and the save made by Lee surrenders the corner but I think he was caught a little unawares not thinking that was going to end up towards his near post he was quick that way substitution coming in for Arlington ese entering the game now is Tobi Wells Zimmerman Zimmerman replaces Kennedy so it's a back post Lee spills it defenders sends it up to the edge of the 18 duo touched it out so Arlington will get the throw not the free cake case out Burbidge felt he was taken down a little firmly little bit of an admonishment there for the assistant coach for Arlington Laura Bell put it back in all the throw leave players surrounding him in white Albert off the back heel if it's sorted or anything this new box not a fact that the goalkeeper and then contact info behind and again that's fun somewhat late sit in a mostly unnecessary and we're going to get our first yellow card of the mat good sometimes you don't find your strength is picking up a yellow card it's a situation where they they're not usually in an opportunity to make a hard foul where they would pick up the second one and unless this early in the match does put you behind the eight ball in terms of the physicality put in Sam goes to the bathroom about every 20 minutes butcher Jackson Castro sends it back butcher not it now Flores pressure in front Flores pushes it off sends it up to sauce a Down little flick over the time Motor Bell deals with it horrible take it out there's a foul now we've had our second yellow card handed out in as many minutes as Flores will go in the book but barely a full minute elapsed before the yellow card had to come out again shifting once again passed too far behind so say that Lee comes out your score very tight the fair both teams probing forward several opportunities to get into the attacking third but 10 chances of you been few and far between Castro pulls it back Jackson was making the curling run sada came back outside the Castro Castro the Castro is Jackson hazard challenge well-placed well-timed Flores straight driven ball but it's got too much on it looking for South SATA just have the angle on it Soler tried to reset for the back now butcher will get to it but not before a defender stepped in Laura Bell Labs an open shop trying to get it up top once again to core he's been the focal point for a lot of their offensive passes this has been true for both teams so far ball in the final third is not being quite there nature was tied up a little bit Dickens through the middle says Saito I'll blow it up here to the near side let's try the check up with Rodriguez Castro outside now – Jackson Castro Jackson thought about taking a shot goes to ground looks at the official you didn't even budge gonna move up field coming outside now looks to get on the front foot Alvarado sends it out wide to go over the top we interested to see what kind of adjustments are made by both squads at half time because right now the rock falls over the top trying to get in behind the defense just it's not working Hoddy up to Castro Jackson in control down Castro again with the back heel served up into the box cleanly dealt with I'm either clearance attempt he was it alive for solar to put it in Castro trying to set it back up as they drive it towards the end line I wanna go see the touch he'll remain was solar but on the throne what's official preparing is bored with the stoppage time on it final minute of regulation we can imagine there'd be too much time tacked on this one grabs control sent it here to the near waiting for Wells Zimmerman over laughing run from Dickens was it met with the bass just under the studs Dickens that was spotted one minute of stoppage time gonna be added on jumping a film the board cheeky little flick with Castro de Castro sliding challenge comes up empty outside now the chance the lake Oh perhaps no cleared away by the defenses Lee comes back to give his defender a hug he came out came up empty-handed the ball popped back loose towards the penalty spot but dealt with in the end another opportunity as they lobbed it in toward South SATA defenders were there but there is the half-time whistle 45 minutes in the books and nothing decided yet they'll nil your score going into the halftime break speaking of that we will take a break when we come back we'll have your second half of action between solar and Arlington and Soccer Academy don't

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

the highest level and play these three games or I 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 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 you 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 I need 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

win we got a state championship on our hands that we could 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 were definitely a really important part of my memory our state Cup was fun my team was 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 win state cup go to regionals and go to Nationals and we always fell 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 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 you were and you know making these lifelong bonds 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 outs 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 it's good because they win their state cup and so are other ways to get in and so it's been really difficult but we pushed her in 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 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 in addition to these milestones the National Junior Challenge Cup was founded in 1935 offering the youth competition for young men in the United States the cup was later named the James P McGuire Cup after the late u.s. 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 at the US tradition I think it's extremely important for our competitions for all these groups that kind of emulates the metabolic of one in the Maguire 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 you ah nearside and Joshua Belk on the far wing and your fourth official today is Jason the Ulrich looks like everybody's set out there so we'll see if we can get some goals here in the second half between Arlington Soccer Academy and solar Arlington starts things off with possession here in the second half as they set things up from their backline on the foot of Ross again looks over towards the far side this there's been a decent amount of possession for both teams along the sidelines hard to come by through the middle it Ross a little bit more deliberate right now for Arlington as that was kind of the message for Coach de Souza's squad was they want more possession and I think that would probably be true for both teams as it wasn't so much that they didn't possess the ball but their push in the attacking third was almost consistently via the long ball and that's really kind of a 50/50 proposition at best unless you know for sure that you've got a solid run coming up through a gap Ross back to send it to his keeper lead no goalkeeping changes so everything remains just about the same as we ended the first half with solar gains possession Albert potty Albert again again good shape as that was just about the word said every two minutes by coach DeSousa and his staff they want good shape of their squad Castro sends it over towards the far wing both teams trying to find any kind of space is the defensive setup has been really solid for both squads through the first half in the opening few minutes of the second still seeking our first goal of the match free-kick to Arlington back in their defensive end header was won by blasts second attempt pushes it a little further upfield slid through the middle body hood gets it back from Castro Jackson gives it to potty Castro again hotty looking to serve it in defender met him there butcher knew all could move through the middle by Jackson Castro this fellow Castro sends it out to potty a little bit too much delayed there that allowed the defender to get in position butcher brings it down puts it on the right foot shooting Lane evaporated [Applause] butcher Castro knock in the passes around here all the way back over the midfield line Albert Oh reset the top of Blas for a furch free-kick given as Rodriguez went to turf won by Ross along the backline trying to come over here to the near side unsuccessfully connecting with Alvarado Castro sends it to Jackson Jackson loops one back over here to the near side Hoddy brings it down with a chest one time across solar started to string a few things together there in the last couple minutes all went too far out of place so they'll get a new one in add too much movement on this gold cake trying to get open into space takes abouts Castro wins it solder back in possession potty so over-the-top Castro again Luol purchase on the outside sticks out a leg and slows that ball up on the touchline perch butchered your side now for potty take a stroll along the wing taking on that right back then place it off corner kick Jaxson Castro will go out to take this corner kick try to put it into a dangerous spot it's been interesting to see neither one of these teams have really taken advantage of their set pieces whether it be free kicks or corners as they go short with it setting up a different angle now for Jackson Jackson Castro puts it in to the mixer too many blue shirts right in that area loss back the other way looking for Rodriguez Luo came to help as well but splitting the defenders and the pass not quite where it needed to be Jackson wanted to drive it in back heel to Castro same comes Patti sends it into the middle defenders slipped and went down top now for patty butcher leaves it for butcher perch this is back and forth on the outside who all has to come all the way back to the defense nothing in the way of space available right now shows you the quality of the defense there really hasn't been much of an attempt by many of these players to go 1v1 either chance to counter now for Arlington as they push numbers forward trying to stay outside but the flag goes up core was just in a step too early Hey again solar able to string together surpasses but most of it seems to be confined over towards the sidelines and then when they can't push forward it ends up coming back they try to swing it around the umbrella here's Castro up through the middle intended for so SATA stepping in front the defender a little bit of contact too much there Johnson having a few extra words with joke or Castro tried to connect you all just outside the circle left for Castro again just not too much in the way of options available you can kind of see what Solar is attempting to do but if you've got a keen eye you'll also know that Arlington really isn't biting on any of this they're keeping their positions almost playing if this was a basketball you'd almost compare it to a zone defense Arlington trying to counter here as they push up come in here towards the near side back the other way goes dickens Kennedy in towards the edge of the area trying to find a little bit of space now here comes a attempt towards goal and then Bordeaux fell and it got too caught up in between his feet never got the shot away coach Castro little bit upset at the defensive breakdown there she's talked about how that's led to goals in some of the other contests Jackson Castro a little bit shaken up Cal Johnson having an extra word now with the matthew Goodwin he's already in the book so he's got to be careful if Arlington goes down by a man that will really change the dynamic of this match set it up trying to get it over to the top to Castro here on the left nothing doing there Albert to butcher put your calls for it back and gets it good threat work here through the middle together just not able to break down the Defense Jackson looking for Castro Jackson gonna take a shot didn't end up wide by too much but he had it covered all the way [Applause] are they've been looking for an escape route last touched by guru feet butcher back through the middle for Luo Albert Castro brings it towards the left sideline Castro able to create a little bit of space with the dribble lifters fun around his initial mark Castro lays it back I'd give it was Jackson again a defender able to work with that attempt are they – not quick enough in their counter-attack though is they were too close to the sidelines wind continues to blow coming from your backs as you watch this slightly right to left but mostly blowing across the field neither these teams wanting to give an inch defensively it's just been all about good marking solid set up overall and not allowing any kind of fakes or trickery to take them out of position I liked it has been well placed moving as an 11-man unit it's given solar a little bit better of the possession numbers is somebody shoo flies off their RV Castro losing the right boot Jackson takes it off the free kick Rodriguez looking for any kind of space up the wing ice to peel it back butcher Castro inside now Potti Castro how do you get to heavy out of touch the boss lays it back lead miss kick so we're unable to take advantage back up towards the circle just outside claimed by Bluffs a little bit of space now on the outside close down quickly say to able to win than throw Jackson up to Castro when backheel gets it back Jackson puts it on the left foot the shot Jetson Castro with his second goal of the tournament and seemingly out of nowhere he's able to create a little bit of magic and finally put his team up by a goal so now the defensive focus will become laser sharp for solar as Jackson Castro has given them the advantage here Harlington trying to get a substitution in before the restart it was a confusion as to who is going to be coming out looks like Muhammad will come out in favor of Kyle Burbage so now the game plan for Arlington Soccer Academy changes up a little bit they've been so good defensively but finally a bit of individual effort was able to kind of break them down the Castros connecting on that gold a little back heel from Harvey Castro's set up Jackson he was able to switch it back onto the left foot create enough space between him and the defender to get a shot off and put it into that far netting so Sato the sideline into touch back to Arlington only the second goal allowed all tournament long for Arlington defensive breakdowns have been few and far between in fact the last goal that was scored was way back on day number one which was a 1-1 draw with the Michigan Jaguars referee says the ball was gained much to the displeasure some of the solar fans they felt there was too much contact their loss to Castro it's now the game starting to open up just a little bit put your solar stringing together passes if you're Arlington it's obviously easier said than done but you need to get more possession now because sitting back and defending it's not going to do you any good trailing by a goal coach de su said telling his troops that they have to come and press switch it to the far side for first loss so seda was spun around and he will draw the free kick yeah Kyle Johnson calling for cooler heads free kick just to the right of Center in terms of the left and right directions to solar in no hurry to push it forward they could just possess the rest of the contest the way it's gone so far I don't think they would be too unhappy they've got the goal that they needed coming in the fairly early portions of the second half free kick given to Arlington's there was a little too much contact from a butcher I linked it looking for options as florabelle send it all the way back Ross sets it up trying to go over the top but if he was open here on the near sideline and looked have been unhappy that that never got all the way he's rude contact from so Santa as he was able to knock Ross off that ball but just too much pacing behind it for him to collect Castro just to the left of the circle had it knocked away coming back to get a piece was Burbidge he's now in possession Castro trying to repay the favor Burbage able to get around curled that one towards the box but just the angle not quite on Jackson can move too much of the jersey of Jose Alvarado sub preparing to come in for Arlington Arlington taking their time with this free kick towards the penalty spot dealt with by furch all goes out to the outside couldn't be corralled by pine I will allow solar to at least avert the danger for a moment back up towards the circle taken by burbage spins it back to his defenders mine lets it run through I don't think that was quite expected as Ross was kind of scrambling to make the clearance chance to push forward now for solar Jackson comes outside to Castro puts it on the right foot back to the left a quick shot he buries it down and makes the grab my bourbon just got spun around level two dispossessed castro too much on that one from core but it is held in by Goodwin Goodwin draws the contact and now we're going to get a yellow card handed that going into the book is Dallas Albert so yellow carts coming with some frequency here today three hand that one to Mathew good one for Arlington Flores and Albert in the book this one comes loose and Levitt confidently out off this line as he had to Arlington players closing in the difficulty for solar with their yellow cards obviously with this be in the last match you don't necessarily have to worry about the next day but the two that have yellow cards for them are more defensive players obviously Flores an attacking player kind of on the wing but still comes back and aids in defense not a pure striker so therefore they're going to be in more situations that might give them a little bit of trouble Pope was clattered into a little bit slow to get up that was actually Gabriel Rodriguez not sure if he's seizing up on that left leg but he's limping around quite a bit Arlington once again given a free kick a little bit further up the field this time now to give them an opportunity to send it into the box [Applause] one Lilya scored Jackson Castro scoring in the 60th minute Levitt misjudged it comes down with a foul called it's one of those whistles that the attacking coaches never liked because the contact wasn't necessarily egregious but officials usually electing to protect the goalkeepers as Albert will come out of the game coming back in as Flores so that doesn't necessarily take away the danger of picking up a red card but double yellow I should say but it does give a slightly different defensive look now for solar get a little more contact in the midfield is the free-kick one by Dickens or head Dickens a little bit slow to get up shaking it off knowing his team needs any kind of push up into the attacking a third that they could get trying to find a little bit of available area over on the far side and that didn't quite work out miscommunication between Arlington players they get away with it and the counter-attack could be on butch your Apple to leap up and take that one down Dickens brings it back filter down here to the near wing for Burbidge looping one over the top flicked on oops it over the top Burbage making the run flores clears it but not cleanly he comes all the way out but we're going to have a whistle and the stoppages there's a player down for a soldier over at the far side I think that's Rodriguez who's down it said he was a little shaken up a few minutes ago a little bit of contact in from behind and I think that caused the muscle to seize up as it's his left calf that they're trying to stretch out but it looks like Coach Castro is going to make a substitution here as Gabriel barns has stepped up to the touchline and is ready to check in so well the trainer's see the hip the players take the opportunity to come over and get some water as they make the final push towards the end of this contest just about 1/4 hour left in this match in regulation both these teams know they don't need to save any energy for the next day this is all she wrote and leave it all out there all those cliches right now time on the side of solar the team out of Dallas Texas those teams finished first in their group so this age bracket is kind of gone chalk if you will Michigan Jaguars did put up a fight against Soler in the semi-finals scoring three goals but Soler coming out on top they managed to put four in the back of the net only one here today but as solid as Arlington has been defensively that first goal was pretty hard to accomplish Arlington keeping a little bit more possession now Goodwin Burbage pores open on the outside defenders coming for able to cycle back around it Ross Goodwin was calling for it they go a little further up the field instead up and over the top Burbage the intended target howdy got their first pressure being put on coming up a little bit empty though another free-kick gained by Arlington is their starting to get a few more set pieces here and the wind picks up switching directions slightly though Holly Ford in the middle instead they come out to the right Alvarado Center the pitch Dickens had his pocket picked same goes for butcher another free kick to Arlington they go quick Lorna Bell the wing get space hard to come by here solar not necessarily is compact and structured its core with the shot coming to make the block last moment Sebastian Blas it's able to get in front of that one does it looked like core headed some nicely and it was falling in a perfect position to get a solid volley in behind it it's Arlington starting to threaten now solar not slacking off but it's a few cracks in their armor starting to show up still lead by a goal so say it a little high beyond the touch butcher sends it to Jackson Castro on the deer side he's got the lone goal here today Bobby one oh and Lee has to dive out to avoid the tackle from so Sato sure put on by Barnes Goodwin here on the near sideline I'm gonna get around Castro herbage gave it up in the midfield as he was a little shaken up similar collision to the one that injured Rodriguez Hadi makes a steal Castro how do you get to the top of the box so SATA contact Johnson says to get up mishandle by Flores so he has to go all the way back love it one time out just over the head of the leaping Jackson Castro served back by Alvarado Goodwin here on the near wing Ross Alvarado Gomes asking for it up top Burbage takes it right into the defender throw in for Arlington Goodwyn looking for options butcher makes the steel he was asking so say to make more of a run he had to come back word with it castro able to absorb all that pressure butcher just popped it up in the air off the head of goodwin so throw in two solar how do you was taken about every second that was going to be a lot of to him to throw that in goes into touch again this time back for arlington little bit of space now jackson castro on the right foot this time lee was cheating just a little bit to his left and had to kind of bend back to the right to make that save necessarily the conventional way to bring that down but still effective there from you all furnish clattered into advantage played Barnes has it out on the right so seda was making the overlapping run Barnes has to come back with it butcher all the way back to the defense do all gets her own Dickens Arlington trying to push forward Ross sends went up high substitution check it in for Arlington now Zimmerman comes back into the game as he replaces Kennedy it's about five minutes left in regulation see how much time it's added on mr. ground in the Box Dickens back heel now putting towards goal defenders just kind of aimlessly trying to clear that's dangerous is you never know when that might pop up into an arm that it's down for core defender there rolls out and a goal kick another substitution coming in this time it'll be for solar Jordan muñoz comes into game these four and replace Barnes diego castro trying to find the right combination to see this game out one-nil the lead on a 60th minute goal by jackson castro intercepted through the middle Burbage core looking for space outside it's taking up residence Dickens kind of stood up think he was expecting the whistle the girl that never came raus his lead has come way out of his goal box try to provide an extra bit of support in these kind of instances right here so that that ball doesn't continue to run back towards the forward line Dickens thought he might have been offside so didn't make an effort at that one foul against Darlington as they came over the top time to take it away here for Arlington Soccer Academy solar he had no great hurry to get this one back into play whistle free kick once again back to solar Arlington doesn't really have time to be making these kind of mistakes cleanly struck they're on the restart Florida has place it right back into Burbidge everybody trying to stay in behind the ball service in and dealt with as Blas came back Jackson to Castro Castro out wide now finds Flores South State up we get another whistle Arlington get it back player down here on the near side it's Burbidge I think he took contact from a ball a little bit low so it's gonna be shaken up Arlington trying to get a quick substitution in the can't allow too much time to take office we are just about out of regulation time and the game is David Marshall Alvarado will swing back over here towards the near wing the Marshall will take a more central role this coach DeSousa looking for the right combination to find an equalizing goal they need possession first right now Soler has it intercepted by Laura Bell let's they try to get on to the attack a little bit of space on the left wing and a foul giving too much contact from munos so we're trying to get a substitution in here he's gonna go all the way up and join this coaching staff tells lino so he'll retreat back to at least midfield Munoz will come back out of the game Pope will reenter hope you're fine trying to provide a little bit of height here flick came in to settle style limit score love it devout way to flag his own it's gonna be a discussion and offside is to call an unbelievable turn of events as it looked like the equalizing goal had been scored lemon spilled it but a goalkeeping save cannot put you back into an onside position so it has to be a situation where whoever put that ball in the back of the net in an offside position after the ball in so crushing turn of events for Arlington si as they thought they had the tying goal still trail by one now send it in leaven again comes out this time a little bit stronger with the ground and it just boots it all the way as far as the can takes a couple fortuitous bounces as exit to feel but good 15 yards or so from midfield another free kick I think butcher was either that upset with the official or thought that it was over because his shirt came off fortunate that the ref did not see that in some instances that can lead to a yellow garden Arlington pushing numbers forward they've utilized these set pieces much better here in the second half were needing a few opportunities they thought they had the tying goal [Applause] i intercepted lee in a footrace has to just play it out is he the slightly off-balance the kind of exasperated they're wondering what was going on in that situation solar trying to play it up the sideline full-time national champions are solar [Applause] the Don Grier cup belongs to the team out of Dallas Texas the 60th minute gold from Jackson Castro holds up Arlington comes over to their sideline looking dejected they thought they had the equalizing goal just moments before regulation time would have ended but the flag went up slightly late as the goalkeeper spilled wouldn't put the player back on the side so disappointing way for their tournament to end but a solid win for solar as they are national champions we hope you enjoyed today's contest but that will just about wrap it up for our broadcasts here this morning for everybody here at turbo Sports crew and thank you for watching until the next time this is top cannula signing off from Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex have a great day everyone you you
