With one game to spare, the Dallas Texans won the 2009 U.S. Youth Soccer National League U-16 boys championship. The Texans have also clinched the
U-17 girls title.

(Click here for video highlights.)

The two Dallas Texans as well as GSA Phoenix Red, second in the U-16 boys division have clinched berths at the 2009 U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships.

The Baltimore Casa Mia Bays' U-15 boys have secured a trip to the National Championships, though the U-15 National League won't be decided until the final weekend of play March 20-22 in Detroit.

Under-17 Group:

Snow wiped out the final day of play in the under-17 boys division in Georgia. It left Eastern Pennsylvania teams YMS Xplosion and Lower Merion Velez tied for the lead with 14 points, one ahead of the Dallas Texans-Houston Red. They were not scheduled in compete on the final weekend of U-17 play March 13-15 in Las Vegas, where only Slammers FC has a chance of catching the top three teams.

The YMS Xplosion and Lower Merion Velez and Dallas Texans-Houston Red-Cobb FC games will be rescheduled at a later date.
