[U.S. UNDER-18 MEN] The USA beat and tied Canada in a pair of under-18 international friendlies at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center in Carson, Calif.

Piakai Henkel, who plays for the youth academy at French club Amiens, Ben Spencer, which plays for Chivas USA's academy team, and U-18 newcomer Amando Moreno scored in the 3-1 over Canada.

Moreno, a high school senior in the New York Red Bulls academy program, converted a deflected ball in the box in the 87th minute to help the USA collect a 2-2 draw in the second of two matches against Canada.

Zach Pfeffer, who plays for the Philadelphia Union in Major League Soccer, opened the scoring in the second minute with a nice finish in the box following a low cross from Paul Arriola.
