[U.S. YOUTH SOCCER] The Baltimore Bays Chelsea won their record ninth U.S. Youth Soccer boys title when they beat the Chicago Fire Juniors, 2-0, to claim the 76th McGuire Cup championship at the 2011 National Championships in Phoenix.

The Bays U-19s are now a three-time national champion, having also won titles as U-14s and U-15s.

YMS Thunder (E-PA) upended the defending champs Alpharetta (Ga.) Ambush Red, 1-0, on an 89th-minute penalty kick from Penn State signee Kyle MacDonald to take in the under-18 title.

For the third time this season, Grand Rapids (Mich.) Crew Juniors and Penn Fusion Celtic played to a 1-1 score in regulation, and Crew prevailed this time, 5-4, on penalties to win the U-17 title after coming up short at the National Championships each of the last three years.
