McRae completed a hat trick with goals in the 58th and 65th minutes, with Sereno's Tanner Faggioni finding the back of the net in the 63rd. Izsak Fierro's 70th minute goal tied the game 3-3 for the final score.

In the Under-13 Boys age group, Boise Nationals Celtic (ID) had a 2-0 win over Magic City (MT) today. Peyton Harris (42:00) and Cole Thortnon (49:00) were the two goal scorers for Boise. Tomorrow, Boise plays Neusport Green (NV). Neusport is undefeated through the first two days of preliminary games.

Looking for their first win of the Region IV Championships, Under-17 Boys Real Rush Nike (HI) didn't hesitate to take control of today's game against LV Premier (NV).
