2019 US Youth Soccer – 17U Girls Championship Final – 9:30am – Field 4



don't 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 if Emma quiet 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 is a meaning at the S tradition I think it's extremely important for our competitions for all these groups that kind of emulates we make the water cup 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 [Applause] 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 on my life hey everybody here was amazing play against some amazing girls and I think it was awesome it's really great to see by team like hold together to really work are you being a regional champions amazing it's once-in-a-lifetime type of opportunity for these guys with myself I'm really excited for these girls with this confidence to go to Nationals and just test ourselves against great competition we managed to Nationals and that was amazing because we were one of the best I think at the time was of four teams it was a round-robin actually so the best four teams in the whole nation and so we thought we were just the next best thing since sliced bread and I think that playing in that tournament was so surreal because you saw you played against other club teams that were so good and and at the same level of you that you you know don't necessarily always get the chance or opportunity to play against which was so great for us because we're like wow these girls are at like just as good as us if not better and we have to compete at the highest level and play these three games or thought yeah I was around Robin's wood before but still that just reminds me of how competitive I was in my teammates were at that age which also I think helped me get to the next level and being that competitive at the club level I mean has only helped me you know continue to grow a competitive spirit and Louisville that I'm playing at right now the national championships it's 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 achieving that and to have that happen and I think what's so special about youth soccer is that it's really your family the the girls that you grow up with become like your sisters and and you do everything and there's just like such a strong camaraderie there so to play with 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 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 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 with our team which which made it so much fun that was always like the big goal at the end is win steak 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 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 who you were and you know making these lifelong bonds this tournament it's great competition I mean you just have to work all these teams are belong here all these things work so the competition was fantastic and start to finish and when you get to play in a facility like this it makes it even more worthwhile traveling there six and a half hours to get here we sacrifice a lot time and like our summer so I really think that if we keep with that we'll be on pace for a great time of Nationals an overall great performance came out in the second half was able to close it out and get that regional victory that we were that we wanted benefits this level huge the college exposures seconds 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 its 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 there 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 is very strong competitive team it's a sweet victory because they really deserve it the girls were tired they were they were weak and they dug really deep they really did they really really fought for it everyone wants it so bad that we all get better from each other no matter the winner the 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 dug it to the end and we're able to come out with a victory today it's just an amazing feeling knowing you you scored the winning goal for the team you worked so hard for this we all deserve this regionals is is where you'll find the best state champions come in and they give you a run for your money I think soccer and the whole is a creates a family the bake sales car washes the raising of money it brings all of us together and we are one and on to Nationals you 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 is good because they win their stake up and so are other ways to get in and so it's been really difficult but we pushed through 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 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 will be 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 lake 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 if Emma quiet Cup was started 1935 it was the only Cup that the United States Soccer Federation had for youth players and it was a very good competition and I can tell you I mean it was the highlight of my soccer career to be a champion in 1954 this storied Cup now the oldest trophy in youth sport it has a history as a meaning I think as tradition I think it's extremely important for our competitions for all these groups that kind of emulates the mcguire cup 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 hello folks and welcome back to field four here at the shield Soccer Complex here in Overland Park Kansas for the final day of the u.s. youth soccer national championships we've already seen one fantastic national championship played the under 14 girls division this matchup the under-17 girls division for the national championship it'll be Cleveland FC taking on pipeline spirit pre Academy these two teams already met and group play it was a dominating performance by Cleveland FC wait anybody see a score of 6 to 2 however both these teams finished 1-2 in their group and moved on and both were able to get out of the semifinals to reach this point today again months of hard work and preparation by both of these teams numerous tournaments numerous times traveling to different states have led to this moment here at the national championships Cleveland FC will be in the white jerseys and pipeline spirit pre economy will be in the gold jerseys we are underway here and the under-17 girls national championship this ball is launched Ford by Cleveland FC as they will be the ones to hold possession here to start things up be number 25 Kennedy rebel who's throwing his cut out and sent back up the field giving chase his number 10 Bailey De Smet and she is met there by the defense of Cleveland a lot of prolific goalscorers will be featured in today's match for either side one of their that was just on the ball for pipeline De Smet has seven goals so far at these national championships this pipeline once again sending it forward giving chase there's number 12 Alexa Drago 6 but his ball cleared out by Cleveland FC the head coaches by the side number for Cleveland Dave said Loski who's been with Cleveland since 2013 played college ball at Cleveland State as for pipeline Ryan De Smet been part of the club that has been founded in since 2011 and the under 13s earlier this week on Friday for boys has won a national championship so this pipeline girls team looking to make it a second one for pipelines Soccer Academy number seven here for Cleveland Madison Schneider play it back here towards Kathryn Rama Cohn as Cleveland worked things up that far side then Cleveland was first in Group A they won all three of their masters and they beat North Shore United 3-1 in the semi final who had previously beat them in the regional final and those teams met up in regional play that's four pipeline spirit they finished second in Group A behind Cleveland that was six to two loss was their only loss they defeated legends FC three to two in the semi finals this ball is in torch to Schmidt and that is cleared away by the goalkeeper for Cleveland Lilly and Morgan they defeated legends fc3 to chew in the semi-final in the last minute there was a goal by Olivia Courant uh that was able to seal the victory for them and once again these two teams facing up once again after meeting up in group play so be a free kick headed Cleveland's way while their name Cleveland FC their home town listed is Medina Ohio as for pipeline they originating out of Baltimore Maryland already one of the boys teams for Baltimore Celtic another team from Baltimore playing in the under-19 boys national championship over on the field behind us as a strong tackle they're in the midfield and will go out here for a throne she'll be taken here by pipeline defender Laura Schmidt Schmidt Sloane looking for De Smet but now back in position of Cleveland that ball looking for the run made by number 12 Haley ons ball one of their prolific scorers she's got six goals this tournament so far she's also joined by teammate Shelby Sally as the team leaders with six goals for this tournament that ball launched up the field torch to Schmitt who'll be able to get in on the end of it for motor but that again dealt with by the Cleveland defense but once again back on the ball is pipeline that will go on for a long range effort and it will hit the support on the backside of that goal but a very good effort by number two Lanie Cornelius of pipeline it's also a pretty good goal scorer herself she's second on the team with three goals so far at these national championships you Cleveland scored 16 goals in group play by playing scored 12 so two prolific offenses here clash in this national championship match ball sent forward by the goalkeeper for pipeline number 13 Lucy Griffin ball change hands a few times they're on the far side of the field now pipeline able to get possession here through Olivia : she'll send a long ball forward for the Smith to chase just meant able to chip the goalkeeper but is loose in the box and Cleveland's defense will get there first and it's clear up the field there where number 25 kennedy repo now here comes pipeline this is McLeod working together with Schmidt another long ball for it cleared out by Cleveland and the breeze is picked up here at the complex growing from left to right so that right now favors Cleveland we're in control they're on the far side that field through Schneider the ball up there the far side like slow it went out of balance at some point would be a pipeline throw in here coming up these two teams in order to get here Cleveland were black division champions of the National League they won six matches and drew once and they scored 28 goals in that tournament four pipeline spirit Academy they were the blue division champions of the National League they won five of their seven matches and they scored 23 goals so it's been pretty consistent from both these teams as that ball is headed into the box there by Anne's ball but nobody was attacking it for Cleveland will be collected there by Griffin ball knocked down in the midfield there by Kanta and that ball that was sent up the field by Cleveland will go out it'll be another throwing on that far side in teams although they are familiar opponents will probably feel out each other's tactics here to start this match will be playing the standard 45 minute halves I believe this under-17 girl's matchup this ball in possession now of repo she will send it up the sideline here for number 19 Kylie Fitzgerald Fitzgerald able to help maneuver up the field with her teammates this is Ranma ko now trying to set up their number nine morgan pence but cleared away by pipeline's defense but it comes Cleveland once again through Schneider Snyder they're met on the outside by number 22 in defense for pipeline Adri gunther it'll be a Cleveland throw in there let's ball in towards Shelby Sally number 17 nicely turned it over in possession there and pipeline will recollect in the midfield this is a long ball for two De Smet she will bow there and able to win this off to Schmitt now 1v2 they're still with the Schmitt bounding around in the box trying to get forward she goes down referee says no foul the ball will come out here towards Schneider the Smits already had a few good runs forward for pipeline their most dangerous attacker now here comes Cleveland once again long ball forward they're looking for is ball but once again pipeline in possession for a moment that ball at the far side for number 12 alexa dragon 6 goes out of play and cleveland will reclaim possession through throwing plenty of space here on the outside for repo she's unable to keep that ball in play Laura Schmitt now in possession on this throwing for pipeline I plan I'll get a another throw in here that was curanto knocking off of a Cleveland defender rather thrown by Schmidt seem to be a miscommunication there with the Schmitt on what run was being executed I'll be a throw in here for Cleveland this is repo now getting it back in ball bouncing around here on the sidelines nodded down there by pence and booted back up the field that's going up there in the midfield Leslie brought down here by number 28 Ella Kane her pipeline now this is Cornelius working together with King as pipeline enjoy their first bit of sustained possession long ball Ford there towards the far side cut out by the Cleveland defense the pipeline get it right back long ball by Schmitt into the Cleveland box but no one is attacking it there for a pipeline this will be number three Sophia Gorski now on the ball for Cleveland she gets up the field there towards pence that's Cleveland I'm working their way up slowly here down this near side that ball will fall towards Sulli there that'll go out of balance and pipeline will reclaim possession again both these sides good high-scoring teams although in the national championship game defenses get tighter and space may be hard to come by here in this matchup ball bounces around here up towards Sally it'll be a free kick going the other way here for pipeline a free-kick taken there by number 15 Abby Meadows she got over to her partner Claire Gere in defense and pipeline now will choose to move up that far side and we'll get a throw in there now pipeline working back in towards the middle of the field this is MacLeod now this is core lanta back to her defense as this ball will be played down the silence mitt giving it a look but it will once the ain't go out for Cleveland both these sides have been stuck on the sidelines for the first part of this match ball bouncing around there eventually clear up the field by Cleveland towards number 17 Shelby Sally Sally able to get you on spa hey Leon spawn now making a run into the box she's in on goal now hey that's Bob they're great save by the goalkeeper Lucy Griffin Cleveland neighborhood maintained possession here through Rama Cone her ball on the box they're cut out by the defense great stuff there that Griffin to stop the run there of on Spa who was in on goal and this ball now collected by Sully she'll get it there towards repo pipeline unable to get it out away from their box well have it here at the top of the box no pressure there from Cleveland to start but eventually enough of it of a pressure they're on the pipeline defense that they force it out or I Cleveland throwing in a patient pace set by both teams now over the course of the past few minutes after some good forward runs were made by other side although that chance there by Hans ball certainly had the pipeline defense worried this is Kennedy repo once again now for Cleveland she gets a torch silly there in the corner she's unable to maintain possession this is now number 23 for pipeline Amanda McLeod but once again cleveland back on the ball it's a sarah robertson and midfield good ball up the field torch schneider able to evade one defender but eventually cleared away there by the pipeline defense up the field now Cleveland working their way down into that far corner fall down into the box cut out there by the defensive pipeline for the game's first corner kick and that's I believe Claire Gere who was working things over there for pipeline's defense but instead Cleveland now will take advantage of this set-piece opportunity tough to tell on that far sideline who may be taking it it's now ball on the near post here by Cleveland and it's into the back of the net right off of the corner again it was tough to tell who took it there in the corner I believe it's number nine Morgan pence who took the corner kick ball towards the near post nobody attacking somehow it trickled in there past the goalkeeper Griffin and that ball had everybody fooled everyone was looking towards the official fence nevertheless it's a one-nil lead here for Cleveland FC early on in this championship match we'll try to get confirmation there on the goal score but soon right off the kick off it's desmet in the box and she sends her shot over the goal yeah it was a weird corner kick sent towards the near post through a couple bodies from our angle it looked as though it hit the side netting but it in turn actually hit the left corner of the net and in for pipeline they'll say it's early in the match and they'll be able to get back into it but a very weird turn of events and Cleveland will be happy to see that ball go in the back of the net this is silly now and attack for Cleveland she's trying to get it up the field there towards Kylie Fitzgerald but it's cut out by pipeline's defense this pipeline now trying to get four broken up there by pence Cleveland will try to work the far side their challenge coming in on number 14 Ranma cone will earn her side a free kick Alexis knows that gold will go down as an own-goal but still a fantastic corner kick taken over there by Cleveland I was able to cause the confusion and get them on the board here in this first half now this free-kick taken into the box heads go up it's still loose in the box pipeline I've gotten three heads to it but still cannot clear now this is repo in the corner now for Cleveland people back towards goal maintaining possession at least in the corner goes for the back heel but sends it out of bounds here for a pipeline goal kick in these two sides I've already met up in group play it was a dominating 6-2 to victory for Cleveland but since then both those teams finished 1-2 in their group and both made out of the semifinals and into today's matchup I'll knock down here by Cleveland once again it'll be Ram McComb pushing forward but that ball now little too far for sully to chase and picked up there by Griffin Griffin's short goal kick they're taken away by Hans ball and now here comes Cleveland once again that ball towards number 19 Fitzgerald was cut off by pipeline's defense otherwise she would have been in on goal now pipeline seemed a little bit thrown off there by that early opening goal though there's pauses substitutions being set up but we'll get things back under way here for Cleveland as they have the ball there in the corner through Fitzgerald she gets it over to here towards repo repose left foot across there claimed by the goalkeeper Griffin that was Rama Cohn giving chase for it for Cleveland now Lucy Griffin's setting things up for her team that's headed down there by Cornelius out here towards MIT but here comes Cleveland once again this is on small now over towards repo repo looking for the run here Fitzgerald but it'll be here now getting there first in shielding that out for a goal kick for pipeline now a substitution will be coming on and every a goal keeper substitution here not sure if this is injury related or related to that ball trickling in at the near post but they'll be a goalkeeper change for pipeline is number 11 Emily Reinhart will be coming into the match for Lucy Griffin it's a bold move here by head coach Ryan de Schmitt to switch goalkeepers here in the first half of a national championship game but he has pushed all the right buttons to get his team to this point so far Ryan Hart now in get her first crack out of gold kick sending up the field cut out by the defense though of Cleveland pipeline he'll switch it to the far side of the field there they'll play it back to the defense and meadows metals now looking for De Smet it's able to chest it down there she goes down herself no call there by the official Cleveland continues to play up the field now this is pence trying to place a lien on gold but Meadows was their first four ounce ball now right back on the ball for Cleveland Cleveland now in on goal here is number 19 goes for goal and it's a goal number two for Cleveland number 19 karlie Fitzgerald played in our goal and sends her effort there into the corner for Cleveland's second goal of the match well it was a turn over there in possession by pipeline on spall able to see the round of Fitzgerald and she was in on going all by herself and she coolly placed her effort there in the corner against the new goalkeeper Reinhardt and now pipeline will attempt to keep things from unraveling here as you guess conceding two goals here earlier on the first half would not make coach De Smet happy here for pipeline and there was a player down Bailey just met there on that play but again the opposing team does not have to play the ball out if the referee does not elect to stop the game pipeline here find themselves on the wrong end of a to nil score line and when these teams met in group play it was Cleveland winning and dominating fashion six to two pipeline were still able to battle back when their other two matches in group play and then win their semifinal matchup to get to this point but now find themselves in quite the hole to dig themselves out of they will try to start things up here through Ella Kane who's able to win a throw-in there on the far side for her team fall back in towards Cain met by the Cleveland defense but pipeline are able to bring this one down this is Cuarenta now finding the run of Schmidt it's a little bit aided on there by McLeod this is Laura MIT now driving towards the corner tackled there by repo it'll go out for a pipeline throw in Schmitt now assessing your options plays it short here to Desmet this medal send it towards Kane at the top of the box the wind affecting that one a little bit and now pence brings it down for Cleveland pipeline back in possession now for number 22 Adria gunther that ball cut out by the Cleveland defense and now they will collect here through Pence that's Rama Cohn now met in the midfield it's Cleveland now cautiously making their way up towards Sully I'll be able to bring that down take it on a couple of pipeline defenders and gets back to Hans Paul this is Haley aunts ball now back going forward for her team she works together with pence there in the midfield that's cut out by pipeline who looked to go the other way quickly good ball here to the midfield towards Cornelius she'll send it up towards the Schmitt Bailey De Smet unable to get past the Cleveland defense there that was number three Gorski on the tackle and now it's Sully now up top for Cleveland working against gear all still in play here Schmidt trying to keep Hill in it'll be a throne here for Cleveland who'll be making three substitutions here we'll try to get them all here for you number 21 Marion Blakemore number ten Emma Chester and number 24 Mary Santelli will be coming into the match the likes of Madison Schneider Morgan Pence and number 25 kennedy repo will be coming off the field here for cleveland FC this is silly now the outside towards Fitzgerald the goal score on the second goal but it'll go out of bounds here for a pipeline throw it again things started off here in the first half for the opening goal off a corner kick that went off of a pipeline corner player pardon me and into the left corner of the net fooled a lot of people and then the second goal off of a turnover on small plane and Fitzgerald in our goal and she was able to find the right corner of the net for Cleveland's second goal of the match as where we currently stand here in this under-17 girl's national championship game Cleveland now clearing it back up this near sideline pipeline will look to come back here through Schmidt both these teams trading possession along this near side good move there by Gorski to free up some space she gets it up the field towards Fitzgerald and Cleveland working hard to get the ball back silly now looking for the run of her teammate this is R amico now into the box for Cleveland met there by a pipeline defense that was gear or meadows I believe also helping out now i McLeod playing a long ball forward to submit to chase cement going up against Gorski and number 88 Julia Pentagon girl gonna sneak leave unable to win that ball this is Blake Moore who just checked into the game at right-back for Cleveland it's good work here by gear she will get back to her partner medals medals trying to clear up the field but it will go out for another Cleveland throw in here again most of the play over the last few minutes here on this near side and Fitzgerald now for Cleveland she's very McLeod there with the challenge I thrown there cleared up the field by meadows it'll be recollected there by number eight sarah robertson and cleveland will start things back up once again through pen gona's here comes blake born now afforded some space by pipeline she'll send up towards Sally silly now gets it over here towards Santelli pipeline defense able to close in for the moment but this is Sully once again trying to find some space at the top of that box now this is Chester working there in the corner she fouls that you've defended over there for pipeline who will earn her team a corner kick or free-kick pardon me slow here methodical pace to set this back up and these two teams will be playing full halfs at this level of girls soccer but already two girls down a pipeline will want to make up that deficit as early as possible this is Olivia Courant ah now on the ball here for pipeline she can move it up towards Cornelius was able to avoid losing in possession and even win her side a free kick there this is Clare gear now sending it over towards this near side for Laura Schmidt Schmidt her passing is intercepted as Fitzgerald works to get a throne but it'll be looks like a free kick here for Cleveland in the referee discussing things with the head coach of pipeline right into Schmitt understandably it's frustrated with how things have been going for her side here in the first half we will get things back under way here through Gorski wear ski Cindy along Baldridge at the top of the box they're going on goal Griffin bobbles it for a second heard he excuse me the new keeper Reinhart able to corral it eventually and for those who have just joined us Lucy Griffin started the game for pipeline but she was substituted here in the first half for Emily Reinhart he's after the first goal that Cleveland was able to score now pipeline will work things back up the field towards number two Laney Cornelius Cornelius now sending the ball in the corner for Bailey to submit to chase but she can only watch helplessly as Gorsky lets that go out for a Cleveland throw in two substitutions now for Cleveland FC number 16 Cassidy Fisher and number 26 Emma Adams will be checking into the match number 12 Haley on spa and number 14 Katherine Rama Kohn both attacking players for Cleveland will be coming off the field this is no pipeline will join in here with one substitution but that will be coming up here in a minute or so is Cleveland to get it back underway here out towards penguins turn over here in possession to Ella Kane she'll use Cuarenta here in the midfield that ball is loose collected here by pipeline and cornelisz she gets it over to McLeod now the ball back here in defense towards Clare gear she gets up towards Kane pipeline lose out in possession here in the midfield able to get it back for the moment but pangoro's now will send it up towards Sully for Cleveland Slee able to play it in for her teammates intelli she is brought down there in the midfield it'll be a free kick going the way of Cleveland we will have a substitution now here for pipeline number 9 Polina Jordan will be coming into the match looks as though Jordan will be taking off number 12 Alexa Drago six that's pipeline get ready to defend this set piece looks like it'll be a Pagonis taking it for Cleveland or ball in the box they're headed backwards by pipeline who will get to it first though and clear up the field and out of the box pipeline get it under control through Kanis she sends it up the field there towards Cuarenta who brings down number 21 Blake Moore and Cuarenta will get a yellow card the first of the match there for that tackle from behind it'll be another central free kick here for Cleveland FC you this is number 88 Julia pan gonna snow setting this up for Cleveland she'll go short out here towards number 21 Miriam Blakemore gonna Swan Seguin now we'll go for the long ball it rolls through into the boxes no one attacking and instead it'll be Reinhart collecting for pipeline score line to nil favorite Cleveland FC here in this first half of the under-17 girls national championship game pipeline trying to work things up that far side as it looks as though number 9 Jordans brought down there and earned some free kick for her team now they were able to get up into the Cleveland defensive half and this will be a good offensive opportunity here for pipeline to put a ball into the box free kick now finally setup curanto comes over to take this one now and she will go short over here on the far sideline now quanto gets it back gets a Torx Gunther but cleveland now start to lunch in but Cuarenta has it once again for pipelines she pulls the ball in the box cleared there by Robertson pine able to keep it in ball towards to submit there caught out by the defense for Cleveland this is Gunther now once again played up the field this is clean of Jordan now on the ball good possession here by pipeline this is Kane now she likes to go back towards the defense here in gear but that ball intercept in the midfield by Cleveland and now evolved through Fort Sully but its Reinhardt off her line very quickly and he's able to play it out of bounds therefore a Cleveland throwing so Lee was in on goal there Ryan Hart hadn't intervened Cleveland will play this throwing short here now this is in the midfield collected by Blake more coming up from her defense position Blake more trying to round her defender get some space in this corner it's good defensive work there by Schmidt she gets it up the field but Cornelius turns it over here ball in the box by Robertson

the halftime whistle car until now playing to the outside as it comes back here towards Kane this is Ella Kane now playing afford ball bouncing around Robertson sends it back up the field and Solly

play was a dominating 6-2 to victory for Cleveland FC that was the only loss for pipeline and group play as they finished second behind them they were able to win in the semifinals they beat legends FC three to two there was a goal in the last minute scored by number 17 quanta that got them here they find themselves two goals down it could be a third here's number 24 for Cleveland in our goal and she will force this save there from Reinhardt on the edge of the six yard box great run and shot number 24 Mary Santelli of Cleveland Reinhardt steps up and forces the corner kick here for Cleveland FC you this is Blakemore now who come over from her right back position to take this corner kick if pipeline will look to do better than the last time they were in this position when that ball somehow found its way into the left corner of the net like Moore's ball headed for the same position Reinhardt gets a punch to it but still loose in the box we've been trying to get a shot on goal there but eventually cleared away by Jordan of pipeline this is skorsky now coming up from her central defensive spot she'll go with the left foot a ball in bobbled a little bit but still Reinhardt able to collect for pipeline or throw out towards Gunther she will look to play it back through her partner gear my plan I've done a better job of these last few minutes and in possession we're still trying to find a way to create a chance to get back into this match ball is loose in the midfield as a couple of pipeline players come together they're some friendly fire results in a Cleveland FC throwing while taking in towards Sully now we'll come all the way back here to Pagonis in defense for Cleveland Cleveland working in that far side and it's number 16 caste Fischer being tripped up there around that logo and it'll be another free-kick opportunity here for Cleveland he'll be Pagonis one of the central defenders over this once again for her team no nurses ball there once again towards the near post bounces in front of Reinhardt but she collects once again under a little bit of pressure there by the likes of Santelli and Sully so here comes pipeline once again ball up towards Jordan cut out there by number 10 Emma Chester and it'll be another free kick I believe awarded towards Cleveland and who have a to nil lead now at the moment here in this first half there's a known go off a corner kick that went near post and deflected off of somebody and trickled into the left corner of the net and then it was number 19 Kylie Fitzgerald score in the second for Cleveland ball towards the box here heads go off that was Robertson with the header and it looks like as there was a coming together of bodies there and the referee will give a free kick towards pipeline slowly are approaching the end of the first half here well wasn't set properly and Reinhardt now will get things back under way for pipeline spirit Cleveland once it again able to win it in the midfield this is Celine now looking for Syntel ease run but intercepted there by pipeline only for Robertson to win it back for Cleveland Robertson shipping it forward now Cleveland player was able to box out her defender it looked like there was number 16 Fischer the referee Awards a free kick instead going the other way for pipeline and pipeline have been stuck in there and for most of this first half trying to come up with some chances they have a lot of good attacking options out there on the field now that's one of them quanta planted to another two Schmitt Bayley to spent now trying to get in torts on goal working her defender will chip the goalkeeper here but it will go just high and be a goal kick here for Cleveland De Smet had times been the lone target for the pipeline attacking easy to figure out why she leads the team with seven goals so far at these national championships Sophia Gorski now working things from the back for Cleveland up towards Blakemore now Cleveland still have it here on this near side looking for the run of Sallee once again she finds herself in the offsides position but it looks as though this will be brought back for a free kick here on a previous foul this will be Blakemore over the right back but she'll be joined here by Gorski who will say I'll take this one here got the signal here from the side that'll be two minutes of stoppage time here at the end of the first half now this ball trickling over towards the corner towards Emma Adams but she is unable to keep it in and be a goal kick here for pipeline who only have a couple minutes here to try to at least get on the board before the halftime intermission this under-17 girl's national championship game the final day here at the US youth soccer national championships plenty of other championship matches going on across the complex that ball won by Robertson with the header up toward Santelli this is Santelli now on the right side of the box I'm gonna get a ball in she is able to do so but only towards the side netting good defensive pressure there by gear and meadows to force a goal kick for pipeline this is Ryan Hart now coming towards this near sideline Blakemore gets a touch on it but can't keep that in it'll be a throne here for a pipeline this is Laura Schmidt now gets it in towards Cornelius pipeline we'll play it out from the back once again through Claire gear here sending up the field towards McLeod but Robertson is there to challenge once again for Cleveland Pagonis now able to shift it over there towards the far side of the field this is a good run out of the back here by number 10 Emma Chester she gets up toward Sally Sally now trying to cut in on a right but it's taken out there by pipeline's defense now clean of jordan sends it up the field bailey despit now going one on four versus the defense but she's still able to kenny possession McLeod shortly joining her up the field this is still desmet now looking for the run of McLeod who got a touch on it but couldn't control it and the goalkeeper Lillian Morgan who hasn't had much to do in this first half collects and there's the halftime whistle a very controlling first half here by Cleveland FC who find themselves up to – nothing here at the break versus pipeline spirit pre Academy folks don't go anywhere we'll be back after a short break with the second half of this under-17 Girls national championship match you 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 and the United States the cup was later named the James P McGuire Cup after the lake 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 Tajima quiet table was started 1935 it was the only cup that the United States Soccer Federation had for youth players and it was a very good competition and I can tell you I mean it was the highlight of my soccer career to be a champion in 1954 this storied Cup now the oldest trophy in youth sport it has a history as a meaning I think it has tradition so I think it's extremely important for our competitions for all these groups that kind of emulate the Maguire cup 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 [Applause] u.s. youth soccer has impacted my life by taking over I mean it's been a very good experience a lot of like life skills and lessons and how to take on certain things and it's really made a big impact on my life hey everybody here was amazing play against some amazing girls and I think it was awesome it's really great to see whitey like pulled together to really work hard to be on a regional champions amazing it's once-in-a-lifetime type of opportunity for these guys I'm really excited for these girls with this confidence to go to Nationals and just test ourselves against great competition we managed to Nationals and that was amazing because we were one of the best I think at the time was the four teams it was a round-robin 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 of you that you you know don't necessarily always get the chance or opportunity to play against which was so great for us because we right 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 Robins wood before but still that just reminds me of how competitive I was in my teammates were at that age which also I think helped me get to the next level and being that competitive at the club level I mean has only helped me you know continue to grow a competitive spirit and Louisville that I'm playing on 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 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 played 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 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 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 with our team which which made it so much fun that was always like the big goal at the end is Wednesday Cup go to regionals and go to Nationals and we always 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 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 4 and I remember that national championship and I think that it stays with me so because it was about camaraderie it was about growing and learning who we were and making these lifelong bonds this tournament it's great competition I mean you just have to work all these teams are belong here all these teams work together so the competition was fantastic from start to finish and when you get to plan a facility like this it makes it even more worthwhile traveling there six and a half hours to get here Oh folks welcome back to field for here at the Scheels Soccer Complex in Overland Park Kansas here on the final day of the u.s. youth soccer national championships over here on field 4 is the under-17 girls national championship match between Cleveland FC and pipeline spirit pre Academy scored the break to nil in favor of the team Cleveland FC first goal it was number nine Morgan pence taking the corner and may have gone off of an opposing player from pipeline and into the back of the net flowing a lot of different people but that is what opened the scoring and then the second goal a beautiful ball played by Hayley ons ball towards number 19 Kylie Fitzgerald who was able to slot her goal in the right corner of the net and that is how things stand here at the moment we are underway here in the second half is pipeline the gold jerseys will start things up in possession versus Cleveland and the white jerseys going to snow setting it back to her defensive partner and Gorsky that's a turnover there in the midfield I'm pretty sure it'll be a free kick going the way of pipeline yes that was a foul there on number 12 Alexa Drago 6 stayed down here at the moment in the teams switching sides now the wind which has been steadily blowing from left to right for most of the match will now favor pipeline who are gonna get a free-kick opportunity here and on the ball number 10 bailey De Smet who's been the most dangerous attacking player not just in this match before this tournament for pipeline she has option at the top of the box here but here's to Schmitt going for goals straight at the goalkeeper there lillian Morgan she's able to smother it there and collect to send her teammates out of the box now started back up quickly towards Pagonis she will get over here towards the near sideline number 7 Madison Schneider Schneider will now go on a run and try to find ons ball Schneider and hands ball working together there's number 12 for Cleveland able to get in on that she's nuts off the ball bare by gear but now this is Santelli trying to get a cross or a shot on goal but it's blocked there by Meadows who comes away worse for wear but this is still Cleveland with the ball that's Ranma Cohn now back into the match ball into the box looking for a Fitzgerald but it will lead her to the point of exiting the 18 yard box this is still Fitzgerald Oh for Cleveland able to evade one defender with a sidestep there left put her effort to the girl in the goal and just wide there otherwise it would've been Fitzgerald's second goal of the match instead though it'll be a goal kick here for pipeline that's difficult to tell right now but it looks as though number 13 Lucy Griffin is back in goal for pipeline she was substituted early on in the first half for Emily Reinhart as of right now this is Blake more for Cleveland sending it up towards Santelli Santelli now in the box looking across towards Fitzgerald it's cut off by McLeod it's still up near the top of the box gear trying to battle there with Blake more she's able to win pipeline two throwing pipeline finally get the ball back in looking for a De Smet now this is gonna be McLeod now if it'll hold off one defender and get up towards Cuarenta she's tackled there on the ball and would be a throwing still for a pipeline ball up for De Smet cleared away by Gorski but pipeline now making some headway down that far side of the field that touched there for number 12 drags six a little heavy though and pipelines run stops at that point Cleve an FC now with a long throw in here REE collected by pipeline all changing hands there on the far side of the field Cleveland now in possession looking to play on the ball in Don's ball now trying to get past Meadows ons ball on her back this ball was eventually clear at the field thereby Meadows and it looks as though it'll be a free kick here for a pipeline on that far side free kicks in up the far sideline forward to Schmitt but it's cut out there by the Cleveland defense and Blakemore again both these teams already previously playing in group play clean the NFC managed to win that match that was the only loss for pipeline and group play Cleveland won all three games pipeline won two of the three both advanced into the semi finals and both teams were able to advance from that round into today's championship match Cleveland beat Northshore United three-to-one who was a previous opponent in regionals and then pipeline beat legends FC three to two with a last minute goal my number 17 Olivia Cora lenta sealing the deal for them mrs. pipeline Academy now moving up that far side of the field Cleveland's defense has been difficult to break down here today it'll be a free kick now going the other way for Cleveland FC Sophia Gorski over there to take it now one of the center backs for their side in while they call themselves Cleveland FC list their home town is Medina Ohio which is around thirty miles or so outside of Cleveland now this is on spawn now ball early into the box looking for a couple of runners there it was number 14 Rama Cohn who got a foot on to it but she couldn't direct it on goal and it will go out for a goal kick here for pipeline of excellent opportunity a great ball once again by Hans ball but Rama Cohn could not keep her effort there on net it looks as though it is still though number 11 Emily Reinhart in goal so there's no recessed a–to ssin there's Griffin remains on the bench you had a difficult choice today by head coach de Smita sub the goalie out in the first half now ball clean by meadows of pipeline's defense as skiers under some pressure there has to put it up the field and Blakemore will reflect for Cleveland it's Marian Blakemore now on the far side looking for the run of ons ball I was balling that right side of the box they're working against McLeod and gear tries to go through one couple of pushes there from ons ball result in a free kick going the other way for pipeline now referee will have a discussion in their arms ball free-kick their fur pipeline up towards medals were back on the way here good tackle there bounce ball who's now in on goal and she goes right for the back of the net for the third goal for Cleveland right off the hop from that free kick it's hailey odds ball with the tackle and she slides it right towards the center of the goal for the third goal for Cleveland of this match they celebrate here in the corner with the rest of her teammates ons ball now takes the lead on her squad seven goals at these national championships a tremendous accomplishment and now the deficit increases to three goals for a pipeline to try to overcome an even more disheartening for pipeline that was right after ansbach conceded that free kick in the box she was on Meadows there in a heart beatin she turned it into a goal for her team Cleveland FC pipeline now trying to get something going get it out here towards number 12 drive six and she will switch to play towards the other side of the field this is Schmidt now looking for McLeod once the one Cleveland able to win that ball back and they are hungry for this ball up toward Santelli still in play she works against Gere still Santelli now she'll move forward please spell back towards your teammate that's Fitzgerald over there just possessed and now here comes Cornelius with some space Cornelius now send it forward forward to submit to chase suspect going up against Gorski and Gorski gets help there from her goalkeeper Morgan as this ball will go how to play for a pipeline throw-in this is number 22 Adri gunther now throwing the ball in for pipeline this is now Ella Kane working against Rama Cohen here on the near side as pipeline will take as much space as they possibly can to move up the field you compiled by both sides here on the sidelines taking there by number-10 de smet she is able to win her side here a free-kick a good opportunity here from a wide area to put a ball in the box Lanie Cornelius as at the moment the only player on this ball for pipeline this takes this quickly head towards the back post there strong head over there my number 8 Sarah Robertson for Cleveland otherwise I might have fallen towards the head of a pipeline player and now the result will be a throwing for Cleveland FC who have had all the answers so far here in this match while back in here by Cleveland through Blakemore those two teams battle Ford there on the far side and I'll cleared up the field intercepted there by Kane pipeline will look at play through the back intercepted there in midfield though now the ball will come out here towards Gunther she Sprint's to try to keep that in great effort there by the pipeline defender but it'll be a Cleveland throwing here once again quickly taking there by Schneider and this is Pagonis now blake born now other side of the field with some space able to find the run there of Santelli some telling now I'm able to get past gear still say and tell you they're at the top of the box feeding the ball into the box there Cleveland making it attack ball still spilling around and it'll be a penalty kick here for Cleveland FC the ball was loose in the box Rhine where Reinhardt made a grab for it and must have tripped up one of the Cleveland attackers there I believe that was Rama Cohn in on that scramble and she will be the one over this penalty kick a crazy turn of events there off that play off that scramble and now Reinhardt in the position of trying to maintain a score line that pipeline can be able to come back from I'm a coach steps up goes down the middle they're not a very good effort by Rama Cone and easy save there by Reinhart and at least a sigh of relief from pipeline that the deficit did not grow and now they will come back the other way here Cornelius playing a throw ball here for Core lenta and it's picked up there by Morgan OK and that was excellent work by Santelli at the top of the box play in a through ball in Randwick own got to it first and she battled with Reinhart who getting stuck out a paw and tripped her up but again was able to make up for it with the save now another football here this is same telling she's in on goal top of the box just said telly making it forward and nothing for Cleveland FC number 24 Mary's Santelli helping out with that pony a few moments ago now gets on the scoresheet here I said it's been all Cleveland FC in this matchup once again much like the matchup and group played it's now four to nothing in favor their side Mary's Santelli it's been working very hard out there on the outside for Cleveland now she finds herself back on the scoresheet that's her second goal here at the national championships she joins the likes of on spa and Fitzgerald on the score sheet today for Cleveland you four goals is extremely difficult to come back from especially in the way that they've been conceded here by pipeline but they have enough you lose from here as they go forward to submit brought down the box it'll be a penalty for pipeline Academy just like that right off the kick off pipeline able to keep him up with a opportunity they get their best attacker just Schmitt on the ball and she's able to draw the foul and the penalty and she will be responsible now to take it what could this do for pipeline De Smet stepping up to take it she sends it there to the right corner and gets pipeline here on the board fantastically taken County a pony which Bailey De Smet was able to win and that is now her eighth goal of the national championships her team though still down three goals on the scoreboard it's still four to one in favor of Cleveland but all comebacks I have to start from somewhere at least pipeline will not be shut out of this match today it's a Santelli once again back on the ball for Cleveland slipping in arms ball it's those two work together it'll be another free kick going the way of pipeline quickly taken hereby gear up the field she gets it towards meadows Meadows now looking for the run of Cornelius Gorski miss kicks it Cornelius ain't on goal Morgan off her line able to get to that ball it was a crunching tackle there but Morgan that's the referee signaled able to get to that ball and play oh he stopped to check on Cornelius as Morgan came in there extremely fast pipeline had been able to get in on the end of that ball and put it towards the net how the dynamic could this match would have changed instead the score remains four to one is coach de spent out there to check on his player in pipeline Academy I've seen there under 13 boys group win the national championship Friday night they were hoping to have another national champion here today in this girl's team looks as though Cornelius is going to come off for now pipeline will play down a player not sure if they will look to put on the sub or if corniness will be back in but instead play resumes through Morgan's kick which is brought down there by Santelli this is Blakemore now on the far side for Cleveland FC she will send it up the field they're looking for the run of RAM a cone that's down here comes pipeline once again this is driving six bring it down here ball off the field towards to Schmitt who flicks it on from McLeod to give chase to good recovery there by Blake more but still pipelining able to maintain possession this is Kane now working together here with Gunther now this is Kane again under pressure here by Rama Cohn now it's Cuarenta assessing her options Rama Konya in there with the challenge and here comes C until her you clean things up here for Cleveland long ball Ford here looking for ons ball Schmitt able to control it bounced ball gives chase but Reinhardt and were cleared up the field back in there now by Robertson over toward Santelli she was able to get up the field to the moment to morgan pence who loses in possession here towards gear will play it safely back to her to keep her Reinhardt Geir now up the field here towards jaga six its pipeline working it through the midfield that ball will roll out of play here it'll be a pipeline throwing coming up looks as though the official has come too far silent he has had enough from head coach Ryan De Smet who has been dismissed from the sidelines yeah it's been a all-around frustrating day for pipeline Academy we've been a lot of hard work to get to this point it's a really tough situation for pipeline now who must continue on without their head coach discussion over here on the sidelines if the officials about continuing on forward still got some time here in the second half of this match this is though we are able to get playback underway now we are finally ever resume soccer which is what everybody came for here today now Gunther it will get back for pipeline this is Ranma ko now brings down Gunther there in the midfield and pipeline will get a free kick this will be puck onus now actually as Cleveland are able to win the free kick here one of the center backs setting up the field therefore ran Macomb but the wind knocked that one down for sure and it'll be sent back up the field forward to spent to chase Gorsky intercepts their first and now this is snyder for cleveland FC snyder able to get past Drago 6 now still send the ball in fir'aun's ball there's one defender left to be sending it on it'll be another goal for the for free Cleveland FC v of the match and the second fir'aun's ball on the day what is particular strike there with the left foot an exclamation point on what has been a dominating performance by Cleveland FC on spawn now with 8 goals for the national championships there was a great run by number 7 Madison Schneider in the middle of all that to eventually get the ball over to on Spa who smashed it into the roof of the net with the left foot and this has almost been a carbon copy of the group-stage match between these two teams score line now five to one in favor of Cleveland FC pipeline now still representing Baltimore Maryland and their club will have to really put the pressure on here if they want to get back into this matches time continues to tick down here in the second half ball retaken possession once again by Cleveland but through Robertson I'll be a turnover here as Gunther will send it up the field for it to spit to chase in the box Gorsky is their first for Cleveland FC and dr6 will watch this rollout for a throw-in for pipeline substitution now here for Cleveland it'll be number 17 Shelby Sally will be coming back into the match and she will be taking off number 24 Mary Santelli one of the goal scorers

and McCone they're able to win the free kick here for Cleveland this is Gorsky now Sania four for Cleveland FC knock down there by pence and set up the field toward Sally she'll be silly now down this near side going up against Schmidt Schmidt putting a slight challenge there actually effort by the defender and then she's able to subsequently win her side a free kick going the other way ball out towards the far side and meadows she'll be met there by Fitzgerald of Cleveland was able to win the ball back here on that far side medals there excellent work sliding in and turning that into a throwing here substitution now once again for Cleveland who may be looking to empty out the bench a bit number 25 Kennedy ripple will be coming back into the match and coming off number 21 Marion Blakemore who's done some excellent work over there on the far side she gets a couple of hugs and congrats from teammates as it seems as though we're time winding down that this result is almost all but certain for Cleveland FC this is Ahn's ball now on the throwing Cleveland continue to work down that far silent they'll get a throw in a little bit closer now towards the corner and we are about re underway here Cleveland getting the ball back in down in that far corner it's pence working things you try to get a cross in met by the challenge of McLeod and it'll be another corner kick here for Cleveland FC take you quickly here by Cleveland it's aunts ball now on the ball plays across in tipped over the goal there by Reinhardt excellent save that was headed for the top corner and she prevents odds ball from getting her hat-trick on the day another substitution coming up here for Cleveland it'll be Emma Adams checking back into the match she'll be taking off number 14 Catherine Rama Cohen who will no doubt be kicking herself that she wasn't able to join her teammates on the scoreboard by missing that penalty kick but the overall team goals she realizes is in reach I'm still an excellent effort from her today in the midfield for Cleveland this is Reinhart now and plane up the field for pipeline but pence able to cut that down for Cleveland how's this pipeline Ford for De Smet but cut out there by Pagonis now this is Adams now playing it back in the midfield towards Robertson will switch things up and set it to the far side for repo read below sending Fitzgerald on a chase down that far corner and she'll work against meadows of pipeline this is pence now that's now going for gold just the feet are too wide of that left post but it will go out for a pipelined gold

the goal scorers on the day Kylie Fitzgerald will no doubt remember her goal which is the second goal of the match which was scored in the first half and nicely taken effort inside the box towards the right corner this is Pagonis down at the back getting over torched Gorski who will send it up the field this will be a free kick now for pipeline after that challenge it'll be a yellow card I believe issued for descent there to number 5 Claire gear now looks as though another substitution will be made a good-faith gesture here by head coach Dave said Loski be the backup goalkeeper double zeros Kaitlyn Grady will be coming on in the field for Lillian Morgan who again wasn't able to keep a clean sheet but was able to make some key saves early on especially in that first half that kept her team much from a head she's in a great tournament overall as well for Cleveland FC who have completely dominated not just in today's match but through most of their matches here at the national championships this is Gunther now for pipeline who would like to at least shorten this deficit before the whistle goes i ball towards the Schmitt cleared out by Gorski anywhere will do at the moment now for Cleveland I say are you comfortably able to sit back here on this five to one lead I'm out there working together here with corentin in the midfield now we'll miss the help of Drago six who will play it back here towards her defense and number 18 Laura Schmidt good possession here by pipeline this is Kane now Kane now able to slip in to Schmitt Bailey to submit backing on goal trying to work through Gorski unable to get some space for that shot this is Cornelius now left footed effort towards the corner there just goes high and it will be a goal kick now for Grady and for Cleveland FC it's over the good movement there by pipeline was able to get to Smith there in goal but couldn't work the space necessary to come up with a shot and both these teams qualified for these national championships by being divisional winners in the National League both scoring over 20 goals during that tournament both had excellent goal scoring records here at the national championships as well this is pipeline now nudged off the ball thereby pence and it'll be a free kick going the other way here for pipeline Academy you're now sending it forward that ball cut out by Robertson only as far as I was Drago six now this is cane over towards Cornelius she'll work it to the far side for meadows I also early ball in the box might have been looking for a run from Drago six but that will go out of bounds and be a goal kick here for Cleveland couple substitutions now here for pipeline number nine Polina Jordan will be coming back into the match I'm coming in number 26 Emma a vials leave for her first action the game looks though it's McLeod and Drago six who will be coming off for pipeline this is Grady now sending a long ball up the field towards pence dough now be taken into possession

run there number 26 Adams eventually pipeline able to clear up the field this is Bailey de Schmitt going up against Gorski once again those two have had quite the battles here today Gorski able to get

Pagonis now exchanging passes his chest will now go for running here in the midfield still Chester now she'll be challenged but she'll be able to find a ball up toward Sally Lee was almost able to get around that ball instead repo will give chase she'll send it into the corner believe Sally was in a offsides position that's why she didn't go after it now pipeline are aware of that as Jordan will send it back up the field it'll be a throw-in here for Cleveland gonna difficult scoreline to swallow for pipeline we're able to keep things close at halftime and the early stages in the second half but then the floodgates had opened now they have to deal with Cleveland FC dominating possession here in the closing moments this is Anne's bond now to the outside eventually Falls to chester here I'm
