[USA UNDER-17 MEN] The U.S. under-17 national team rolled to another tournament title, crushing host Bosnia-Herzegovina, 4-1, to win the Josip Katalinski Memorial Tournament in Sarajevo on Sunday. Christian Pulisic led the USA with a hat trick in 17 minutes in the second half.

Haji Wright, who had four goals in the opening win over Montenegro added the fourth goal. Afterward, Bosnia-Herzegovina coach Sakib Malkocevic praised Richie Williams' U-17s, saying they were far ahead of other teams in the tournament physically, technically and tactically. Montenegro beat Macedonia, 2-0, for third place.

After crushing England and Brazil to win the Nike International Friendlies in December, the U-17s beat host Turkey to win the Mercedes Benz Aegean Cup in January.

Next up for the U-17s: two games against Croatia in Zagreb.

    Good job crushing little old Bosnia Herzegovin, Macedonia and Montenegro... At this level I find it really strange for kids to be scoring 4 goals and hat tricks... just seems like they may be playing a sandbag tourney and a slight celebration of mediocrity. But good job.
