[U.S. YOUTH SOCCER] The teams from California South took the title in all four divisions at 2013 U.S. Youth Soccer ODP Championships Sunday at the FC Dallas Stadium Complex in Frisco, Texas. For the 1996 girls, it was their second straight ODP title.

1996 Girls
Cal South used an early goal from Hailey Harbison and solid defense to earn its second straight title with a 3-0 win over Indiana. Goals in the final 10 minutes of play from Chloe Hemingway and Christina Settles put the game out of reach. Georgia battled back from being behind two goals to beat New Jersey, 3-2, thanks to Amanda Vocelka's hat trick in the third-place match.

1996 Boys
Miguel Acevedo's second-half penalty kick proved to be the winner in a 2-1 victory over Eastern Pennsylvania. Wyatt Fabian gave Eastern PA an early lead with a 2nd-minute goal, but Cal South responded just before half when Michael Licon scored in the 41st minute. North Carolina and Wisconsin played to a 0-0 tie in the third-place game.

1997 Girls
Cal South followed up a convincing 5-0 win in the semifinals with a 1-0 win over Eastern New York in the championship game. Kathleen Pingel, who scored twice in the semifinals, had the lone goal in the final. Michigan opened up a three-goal lead and then hung on to defeat North Texas, 3-2, for third place.

1997 Boys
Cal South overcame a one-goal deficit on goals while being a man down to defeat Florida, 2-1, in overtime. Goals by Eddie Cabrera and Alexis Diaz were the difference after Tobin Howell’s penalty kick gave Florida the 1-0 lead. Michigan claimed third place with a 1-0 victory over Virginia on a goal in the 17th minute by Blake Barribeau.
