U.S. girls national teams go undefeated at Nike Friendlies
September 25th, 2007 7AM



The U.S. U-15 and U-14 girls national teams went undefeated at the Women's Nike Friendlies at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

The U-15s competed against the top club teams in the U-17 division, picking up a win and two ties. They opened play with a 3-3 draw with Slammers FC of Newport Beach, Calif., getting goals from Kaitlin Kerr, Kealia Ohai and Samatha Mewis. After a scoreless draw against the Dallas Texans, the U-15s picked up their only win of the weekend against Seattle's Crossfire Premier, 1-0, on a goalie by Natalie Ledezma.

The U-14s, competing for the first time as a team, won two games and earned a draw against the nation's top U-16 club teams. The U-14s tied the Dallas Texans, 2-2, then beat Sereno (Phoenix, Ariz.), 4-3, and the Mustang Soccer Club (Danville, Calif.), 7-1.

Leading the U-14s were midfielders Kristi Abatte (Northport, N.Y.) and Olivia Schultz (Hopkins, Minn.), who scored three goals each in three games. Alexandra Doll (Bethesda, Md.) and Haley Rosen (Palos Verdes, Calif.) tallied twice during the competition.
