Under-17 Boys Blue
Dallas Texans Red finished their season in Weston, Fla., last month, but needed to wait until March to clinch the title when Grand Rapids Crew Juniors' Jason Stacy scored a 90th-minute goal to tie Rush Nike Argonauts and end the New Mexico team's chances to overtake the Texans.

Under-16 Boys Blue
Albion White repeated as National League champion when it clinched this year’s title over Far West Regional League champion Eastside FC Red, 1-0. Ariel Lassiter scored his league-best ninth goal in the 13th minute to deliver the win.

Under-15 Boys Blue
FC Dallas finally overtook Olney Rangers on the final day of the season as it defeated Scottsdale Blackhawks, 2-0, on goals by Paulo Sanchez and Nicolas Lozada-Smith.

Under-15 Boys Red
Needing only a draw to clinch first place, Michigan Jaguars beat Classics Eagles FC Red of Ohio, 4-0, to ensure a trip to the National Championships. Jason Carmack and Zachary Boch each scored two goals.

Under-16 Girls Blue
One of the most exciting finishes in National League history ended with the Dallas Texans claiming the Under-16 Girls Blue title when So Cal Blues gave up a goal in stoppage time to Albion's Veronica Perez and had to settle for a 2-2 tie. With five minutes to play, Kelly Fitzgerald slammed a diving header from a driven cross into the back of the net to seemingly give the Blues the title.

Under-16 Girls Red
Hurricane FC of Oklahoma clinched the title when Legends Breakaway could only draw with Penn Fusion in its opening game.

Under-15 Girls
Match Fit Chelsea Beat had a chance to overtake SAC United Premier for the first place if it could defeat Internationals by six goals, but a draw would give Match Fit second place and a berth into the National Championships. Match Fit got a goal in the 33rd minute from Jessica Vigna and held on for a 1-1 tie.
