[YOUTH] The United States won the the Future Stars Tournament for under-17 girls in New Zealand Saturday when it beat Germany, 3-2. Captain Kristen Mewis scored her second goal of the game to break a 2-2 tie in the 81st minute for the Americans, who had earlier in the week had beaten Australia, 6-0, and host New Zealand, 5-0, in Auckland.

Mewis, who plays for Massachusetts club Scorpion SC, finished the tournament with a team-high four goals. Younger sister Samantha scored three goals. Tani Costa (Honolulu Bulls), Courtney Verloo (FC Portland) and Kealia Ohai (Utah Avalanche) had two apiece. Ohai's two goals against the host Young Ferns came on her 16th birthday.

The Americans will hope to return to New Zealand next fall when FIFA holds its first Under-17 Women's World Cup, to be played Oct. 30-Nov. 16. CONCACAF qualifying will take place this summer.
