Prep star continues scoring streak

[REGION III BOYS] Enzo Martinez, considered by many to be the best prep player to ever come out of South Carolina, followed up on his national high school spring title with Northwestern High School by leading Discoveries SC to the under-18 boys championship at the U.S. Youth Soccer Region III Championships.

The Uruguayan-born Martinez, who is headed to North Carolina, scored twice for DSC in its 5-1 win over Norcross Fury Gold in Thursday's final. He also scored twice in the semifinals.

His 182 goals in four years at Northwestern rank sixth all-time in U.S. prep history.

North Carolina's South Carolina SA (U-15) and Triangle United (U-17) repeated as regional champions.

CASL Elite won its third U-14 Region III boys championship in the last seven years.

Teams from North Texas were surprisingly shut out in the regional championships.

The Dallas Texans, who produced winners at each of the last four regionals, had three affiliated teams fall in Thursday's finals at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, Texas.

Their U-16s are headed to next month's National Championships in Lancaster, Mass., as National League champions.
