[AWARDS] The 2009 US Youth Soccer Goal of the Year was awarded to Annalyn Kumar of Dallas, and the Save of the Year was awarded to Paul Hegedus of Ashburn, Va.

Goals & Saves of the Year VIDEO

Kumar was a guest player for Sting Royal 94, a team two to three years older than she is, when she netted the 2009 Goal of the Year, speeding past defenders to meet a pass that she chipped in over the keeper’s head.

Hegedus, who started focusing on goalkeeping when he was 12, made the 2009 Save of the Year in the Bethesda Thanksgiving Tournament. He sprinted out and took the ball off the striker’s foot just in time to preserve the Great Falls Soccer Club Blue 92's advantage.
