[SUPER-20 LEAGUE] A week after winning the McGuire Cup, the Crew Juniors, the Columbus Crew under-19 team, won their second title, capturing the 2010 Super-20 men’s title with a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The Crew got goals from midfielder Travis Wall on a shot that took a deflection off of a Galaxy defender and beat keeper Earl Edwards, the former U.S. U-17 goalie, and the University of Akron's Ben Speas from the penalty spot.

Forward Gyasi Zardes scored for the Galaxy.

The Crew roster contained 13 of the 19 players from the McGuire Cup team.

“It was a hard-fought game,” said Crew head coach Brian Bliss. “The Galaxy had the better of it in the first half and were coming in waves. We bent, but did not break. I think we played much better in the second half. Most of these guys played in a very tough tournament last week in the McGuire Cup. To come here with two-thirds of that roster and grind it out over four days to win the championship, that sort of thing will not be repeated again. I am extremely proud of my team.

WOMEN: The Princeton (N.J.) Soccer Association won the women's round-robin championship, clinching the title with a 1-1 tie with the Washington Freedom.

Princeton defender Jourdan Thompson was named the tournament MVP.
