[U.S. YOUTH SOCCER] FC Pennsylvania Strikers and Toro Bravo of Nebraska won the U-18 divisions in the U.S. Youth Soccer National League, which wrapped up at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Fla., and will return to the 2012 U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships. Several other teams are in the driver's seat heading into the final weekend of play in the U-16 to U-18 age groups March 23-25 in Las Vegas.

Michigan FC wrapped up the National League season with a 4-1-2 record and sit in first place in the U-17 Red division standings. Two teams still have a chance to displace Michigan FC: Legends Breakaway (CA-S) needs seven points and CUP Crew Juniors Gold (OH-S) needs all nine from their three games in Las Vegas to take over the top spot.

VSA Heat Blue capped an undefeated season, going 4-0-3, to lead the U-17 Blue division with a five-point lead over Blast FC (OH-S) and seven points over Legends FC (CA-S), which both have three games in hand.
KCFC Futura Academy finished a strong season with a 2-0 win over PWSI Courage Gold to sit in the top spot in its U-16 division, eight points ahead of Internationals Red, which will need to sweep all three games in Las Vegas.
