[NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS] Crew Juniors became the first MLS team -- and first team from Ohio -- to win the McGuire Cup when they beat the FC Delco Hammerheads, 1-0, in Saturday's final before a crowd of more than 3,500 fans at the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships in Overland Park, Kan.

The Crew’s Tyler Pollock, a rising sophomore at Butler, scored the lone goal in the 36th minute. 

Its title was also the first USYS championship for an MLS team.

The Crew's roster was loaded with college stars such as goalie Justin Luthy (Boston College), Chad Barson, Zarek Valentin and Ben Speas (Akron), Anthony Arena, Andrew Lubahn and Nicholas Millington (Wake Forest) and Brian Rogers (Harvard).

Pollock attended Beaver Creek High School in Ohio, but several of the Crew starters hailed from outside the Buckeye State.

Arena hails from Kenmore, Wash., Lubahn and Valentin grew up in Pennsylvania, Rogers is from New York, while Millington is from North Carolina.

Most have played together on national youth teams.
