MOST COMMENTED

The Nomads of La Jolla, Calif., downed Southern California rival Arsenal FC, 3-2, Monday to win the first-ever Red Bull National League under-17 boys title.

Jose Torres' half-volley opened the scoring in the 16th minute of the final and added a second in the 63rd minute. Jeo Sandez also scored for the Nomads. Rafa Baca and Norberto Ochoa scored for Arsenal in the second half, but a penalty-kick save by Nomads goalkeeper Chris Blais in the 75th minute sealed the victory.

By winning the final at the Naperville Polo Fields, just outside Chicago, the Nomads earned a trip to New York to play the New York Red Bulls U-17 team at Giants Stadium on July 14, prior to the Red Bulls' game against the New England Revolution.
 
Red Bull National League 17 awarded its first 'Golden Bull' trophy, symbolizing the RBNL's top regular-season goalscorer, to Chicago Magic striker Christian Mesa, who scored a cumulative six goals throughout the tournament.

The Nomads claimed a semifinal berth as the No. 2 sees in the West by defeating Sockers FC of Chicago, 2-0, on Saturday. Arsenal FC entered the semifinals in the No. 1 spot by beating Scott Gallagher of St. Louis, 3-1, in its regular-season finale. Arsenal edged PDA of New Jersey, 7-6, in penalty kicks after a 1-1 draw. Nomads blanked Concorde Fire of Atlanta, 2-0. Concorde Fire defeated PDA, 3-1, in Monday's third-place match.
