[U.S. YOUTH SOCCER] For the second year in a row, Cal South teams swept all four competitions at the U.S. Youth Soccer ODP Championships, held at the Reach 11 Sports Complex in Phoenix, Ariz.

ODP Champions:
1997 Girls -- California South
1998 Girls -- California South
1997 Boys -- California South
1998 Boys -- California South

In 2013, Cal South swept the 1996 and 1997 age groups. This year, it was the 1997 and 1998 age groups.

“I’m proud of all the teams,” said Cal South Director of Coaching Steve Hoffman. “They did fantastic. To come in and sweep two times at a national championship is just a wonderful thing and the credit goes to the club coaches and the parents. We’re blessed to coach them.”

1997 Girls
Cal South defeated Illinois 3-0. Kathleen Pingel and Peyton Perea scored first-half goals, while Hayley Mayne had the third in the 79th minute for the '97 squad that earned its second consecutive ODP championship.

1997 Boys
Cal South needed penalty kicks to prevail after Iowa's Kenan Smajlovic scored with a minute left to earn a 3-3 tie.  All the goals came in the second half. Iowa’s Eduvie Ikoba broke the stalemate in the 53rd minute and Adam Nicholson scored for Iowa in the 71st minute. Cal South got three goals, including a pair by Marco Bueno, the age group’s leading goal scorer.

1998 Girls
Cal South took the lead when Kennedy Smith scored in the very first minute of play and the goal held up for a 1-0 win.

1998 Boys
Cal South defeated Maryland, 4-0, getting goals the first five minute of play from Sebastien Des Pres and Samuel Hefter. Milo Barton scored once more for Cal South before halftime, and Andrew Forth completed the scoring.
