[ODP CHAMPIONSHIPS] Georgia won its first national championship and Colorado won its first girls title at the 2010 US Youth Soccer ODP Championships in Phoenix.

Georgia defeated the defending champion California South 1-0, on Iain Smith's goal in the 5th minute of the 1993 boys final.

Colorado matched its five goals in the semifinals, overwhelming Missouri, 5-1, in the 1993 girls final. Francesca Garzelloni of the Storm had first first two goals for Colorado.

California South left no doubt as to who the best 1994 boys team as it defeated Eastern New York, 4-0, in the championship match, giving it seven goals scored and none conceded at the tournament.

Gabriella Galanti of the Montclair United Thunderbolts added to her game-winning goal in overtime in the semifinals with two goals (30-yard free kick and penalty kick) in the second half, leading New Jersey back from a 1-0 deficit against California South in the 1994 girls final.
