Sting's total up to record 11 championships

[U.S. YOUTH SOCCER] Three times in Sting fell behind Hurricane FC and three times it came back and eventually won, 4-3, in overtime to claim the under-16 girls title at the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships in Phoenix. Sting's U-14s also won to give the Dallas club its 10th and 11th national championships, the most for any girls club in the country.

Maddy Crabtree was the hero with the winning goal in overtime to lift Sting's under-16s to back-to-back national championships.

"What can you say about being down on every goal?" Sting head coach Kenny Medina said. "This team had the will to come back. There's no time left on the clock and they scored the tying goal. They just never quit. I mean, what do you say but they're a special team."

After winning the title as an under-16 team, the Dallas Texans Red Dallas outlasted Real Colorado National, 2-1, on a Shelby Redman penalty kick in overtime to win in the under-19 final.

FC Milwaukee beat Colorado Rush Nike, 4-2, in the U-18 final for the first national championship by a team from Wisconsin.
"You start at 10,000 teams and everybody's got to play through each stage of state, regionals and nationals. At any one of those stages you meet really good teams. So nobody gets here by fluke," FC Milwaukee coach Christian Lavers said. "Two years ago, this team didn't get out of state cup. Two years later, they're the No. 1 team in the country."
