US Youth Soccer National League Results
The US Youth Soccer National League U-14, U-15, U-16, U-17 and U-18 Girls completed final matches at Bettye Wilson Soccer Complex in Las Vegas, NV, alongside the 2015 Players Showcase.
The 2014-15 season was an exciting one for the girls, and in many age brackets — which teams were going to reign as champions was unclear until the final day of play. The top two teams per division earned a place at this summer’s US Youth Soccer National Championships, July 20-26 in Tulsa, OK, and those in the U-14, U-15, U-16 and U-17 age groups earned an automatic spot to compete in the league again next season. With so much on the line, games in Las Vegas carried significant meaning toward the outcome of the season.
The Carlsbad United FC girls not only made an impact but also exceeded expectations by setting records for the National tournament.
Carlsbad United FC U15 Elite girls fell short in the last game of the weekend. The girls booked their ticket to Oklahoma but needed a win against National Champions Legends FC to win the group for the second year in a row. Carlsbad United where up 1-0 with 4 mins to play when Legends FC scored to end the game 1-1. Congratulations to Legends who won the group and a massive well done to Carlsbad Elite GU15.
Carlsbad United FC GU17 Elite clinched their 3rd National League title in a row after beating Albion SC 4-0. The girls became the first National League Girls team to finish a season without conceding a single goal. Its defensive effort helped Carlsbad United capture its third National League division title — an outstanding accomplishment in any league history.
Carlsbad United FC GU18 Elite won back to back National titles and set a new mark for National League division titles by a club. Carlsbad United’s two titles in the 2014-15 season gave the club six division titles, placing them in a tie with Legends FC (CA-S) for the most wins by any one club.
“Carlsbad United’s Elite Girls teams are definitely a force to be reckoned with,” said Michael Duggan, Carlsbad United FC, Director of Operations. “These National League results also provide a great opportunity for high-level college exposure within our club. Our Carlsbad United club email and many of our players’ inboxes have been bombarded with emails and the phone lines have been busy with top college coaches calling in with player inquiries. Attaining these three National League records is incredible and is a fitting reward for all the hard work that the players, coaches, and club have put in on and off the field. This accomplishment is a clear statement that our Girls Elite program is working very well.”
