GREENVILLE, S.C. (June 16, 2012) – The US Youth Soccer Region III (South) Championships, presented by the National Guard, continued today at the MeSA Soccer Complex in Greenville, S.C. The National Guard's partnership with US Youth Soccer is focused on enriching the soccer experience by positively influencing players and coaches in areas of leadership and character development while adding a strong presence of American pride.

On day two of the championships, passion was on display as teams jockeyed for pool position in preparation for the last day of preliminary games. After more than 200 games in two days, several teams have secured slots in the quarterfinals while many others have everything to play for on day three of the tournament. Sunday games begin at 8:15 a.m. ET and continue throughout the day with the final matches beginning at 6:30 p.m.

In U-17 Boys pool play, West Pines United (FL) bounced back from a day one loss with a convincing win over HFC Blue (AL). Andres Payne started the scoring late in the first half as he slotted home a rebound. A Sergio Quintero double in the last 15 minutes of play and a Nicolas Souberville goal just before time ensured a 4-0 victory for West Pines.

Jacksonville United FC (FL) continued its winning ways this week with a 3-1 win over Eclipse 93 (S-TX). After finding the net seven times on day one, Eclipse was held to just one goal by Jacksonville United. Three different players lifted the Florida team, with Suneel Mudaliar, Adam Demetree and Christopher Azar all finding the net.

Georgia state champ and National League team Concorde Fire Elite notched its second win in as many days with a gritty 2-0 victory over BRSC/CSC Alliance (LA). Cameron Bean struck first in the 36th minute and Max Poore added an insurance goal in the 79th. Concorde Fire Elite has secured a spot in the quarterfinal round.

Looking to be the first Arkansas team to advance beyond the quarterfinals in regionals, Aztecas 95 (AR) earned a hard-fought draw versus 49 CFSC Breakers White (NC). On day one, Aztecas showed grit to come back and win from a 1-0 deficit. That same grit was on display as Aztecas and CFSC battled end-to-end on day two on the way to a 0-0 score line.

In the U-15 Girls bracket, after failing to score on the opening day, Challenge 97 (TX-S) found the net in just the second minute against NASA 15 Elite (GA) off the boot of Keely Abt. NASA would fight back and a goal by Kristian Leone brought the teams level in the 51st. Less than 10 minutes later, Challenge 97’s Jaylen Hinckley scored what proved to be the game winner to secure a 2-1 win.

In the pool’s other game, Palm Beach Soccer Academy - Magic Jacks (FL) and SSA/WGFC United 97 Elite (GA) battled back and forth to a 2-2 draw. SSA struck first with a Donye Monroe goal in the 15th. Jacqueline Byers equalized for Palm Beach in the 32nd, before Dallas Weaver put SSA back in front just five minutes later. Sabrina Chung leveled the game yet again just two minutes in to the second half to keep Palm Beach atop the standings in pool A.

97 FC Alliance (TN) secured a place in the quarterfinal with a win over Canadian Valley FC 97 (OK). Two goals in the first 15 minutes of the second half, one by Bailey Williams and one by Delaney Griffin, set the Tennessee team up for victory. Canadian Valley pulled one back in the 63rd, but it wasn’t enough as FC Alliance claimed a 2-1 win.

Red hot 97 Louisiana Fire (LA) cruised to victory over Auburn Thunder (AL) on day two. Leading scorer in the group Alexandra Thomas scored her second hat trick in two days to lift Louisiana. A Kassandra Gonzalez goal and Cadie Higginson double rounded out the scoring. Louisiana Fire and FC Alliance will play for seeding purposes on the final day of preliminary games as they will both move on to the knockout rounds of the tournament.

Seeking out future roster spots, numerous college coaches have registered for the Region III Championships. Year after year the coaches enjoy the level of performance and urgency that comes when the teams play for advancement in the National Championship Series. 

Regional winners of the Under-14 through Under-19 brackets earn a berth to the 2012 US Youth Soccer National Championships in Rock Hill, S.C., July 25-29 at Manchester Meadows.
