BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (June 21, 2014) – The 2014 US Youth Soccer Region II (Midwest) Championships kicked off Saturday at John Ankeney Soccer Complex in Beavercreek, Ohio. Teams comprised of State champions, US Youth Soccer Midwest Regional League champions, and select wildcards, commenced day one with hopes of advancing to knockout rounds, and ultimately, to the 2014 US Youth Soccer National Championships in Germantown, Md.

The 216 US Youth Soccer Boys and Girls teams participating represent 14 State Associations - host Ohio South Youth Soccer Association, and Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio North, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Six teams this year are back to defend their 2013 US Youth Soccer Region II Championship. Four Girls teams include: Under-15 Girls NSA Rockets (IL), Under-16 Girls Ambassadors FC (OH-N), Under-17 Girls NSA Jaguars (IL), and Under-19 Girls Team Chicago Academy Botafogo (IL). The Boys’ side includes: Under-15 Boys Michigan Wolves (MI), and Under-18 Boys Cup Gold (OH-S).

Standout U-19 Girls team, Team Chicago Academy Botafogo (IL), is back not only defending two back-to-back Regional Championships, but also their 2013 US Youth Soccer National Championship. They start off the tournament on a good foot with a 7-0 win against Appleton SC Blue - Goal Getters (WI).

“We came out really strongly and scored two goals in the first minute. I thought it was a good first game for us,” said Phil Nielsen, head coach of U-19 Girls Team Chicago Academy Botafogo (IL). “Overall I thought it was a pretty decent performance but we have another level we still have to reach. We’ve got to move on. It’s not like last year where we were already qualified through National League. These three games are important because it gives us a chance to hopefully be firing on all cylinders at the knockout stage.”

Although Under-15 Girls team NSA Rockets (IL) dominated throughout a lot of the match, putting in all their efforts in game one to advance to the next level, they were defeated 1-0 by KS Rush Wolves Academy (KS). Both teams went into halftime scoreless. A second half corner kick given to NSA resulted in the turning point of the match. After the kick, a rumble in the box led the KS Rush defense to kick it up top to Sydney Wilson. Her fast breakaway was halted by a foul in the box, resulting in a penalty kick for Kansas in the 64th minute. Ellie Johnson went up to kick and rolled it right inside the right post for the victory.

The Under-16 Girls returning champion, Ambassadors FC (OH-N), obtained a 3-1 win over CRSA 97/98 Premier (IA) in their first round robin game. Their first half performance gave them the win. Sarah Krause scored a pair of goals in the 17th and 28th minutes, and Alexandra Wright scored in the 19th minute.

Although Under-17 Girls NSA Jaguars (IL) is already guaranteed a spot at Nationals after qualifying through the US Youth Soccer National League, they gave it their all in their first match defeating Omaha FC Elite (NE) 4-0. NSA’s Alexis Pelafas got a goal in each half, and Alyssa Kovatchis and Erin Fitzgerald each scored second half goals for the win.

Under-15 Boys Michigan Wolves (MI) also started strong with a shutout against MTA 99 (MN). Brayden McNitt scored the lone goal of the first half in the 27th minute, and the second half continued with a pair of back-to-back goals by Nicholas Matton in the 60th and 63rd minutes. The two additional goals were scored by Samuel DeLoy in the 64th minute, and David Camarena in the 77th minute for the 5-0 win.

Henry Myers got a pair of goals as well in the Under-18 Boys Cup Gold (OH-S) win against Millennium Vardar 96B Black (IN). Myers scored for Cup early on in the 5th minute, and in the second half in the 56th minute. Trevor Thompson also contributed to Cup’s 3-0 victory with a goal in the 18th minute.

All defending champs hope to continue with good performances in Sunday’s second day of preliminary play, as they aim to get a golden ticket to Nationals.

“A big, big piece of the excitement of winning Regionals is to go to Nationals,” said Nielsen. “It would mean a lot. This is a team that’s been together for a long time, and is very successful. I think other than the National Championships, the two Regional Championships have been the highlight of our career, so getting a 3-peat would be pretty sweet for them in their last go around.”

Regional winners will earn a berth to the 2014 US Youth Soccer National Championships, presented by the National Guard, July 22-27, at the Maryland SoccerPlex in Germantown, Md. The US Youth Soccer National Championships will consist of US Youth Soccer Regional Champions in the Under-13 through Under-19 Boys and Girls age groups, as well as the US Youth Soccer National League qualifiers in the Under-14 through Under-18 Boys and Girls age groups to complete the field of 96 teams.
