[USA UNDER-17 WOMEN] The U.S. under-17 women’s national team drew, 1-1, twice with their German counterparts during their recent camp at the Home Depot Center. The matches were the first for the U-17s as they start a cycle and also the first under new full-time head coach B.J. Snow.

Kaycie Tillmanhad the late equalizer in the first game, while midfielder Ella Stevensscored the lone goal for the Americans in the 7th minute of the second game.

“The speed of play is something we will have to get used to,” said Snow. “With their clubs or high schools, they are used to being able to take three of four touches on the ball, but today every time they would pick their head up there were two players right on them. We have the ability to play out of pressure, they are just not used to it, so right now there is a disconnect between their head and their legs about how we are going to play.”

The week-long camp was the first for this group of players at the U-17 level as team starts its preparation for qualification for the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup to be held in Costa Rica.

The American roster consisted of players born in 1997 with a few 1998s, while the Germans brought a team consisting of players born in 1996 and 1997.

The U.S. U-17s will come together next for a training camp in early March in San Diego.

“For the most part, defensively we were sound,” said Snow. “We had to make a few adjustments at halftime, but the Germans had a really hard time breaking us down. So for us to get some of those concepts in just a few days, I’m really proud of their effort defensively. There’s some work to do offensively, but the pieces are there to be able to pick and choose the options that are there for them.”

    So that would mean the U.S. team was made up of U16 and U15 players ? And the german team was more U17 and U16s ? If this was the case then our girls did well. These matches were a good developmental tool and maybe a more positive article would be better.
