Region III boys shine in Argentina

U.S. Youth Soccer regional ODP boys '93 teams finished 5-7-2 at the 2009 International Festival in Argentina.

Region III was the only team to have a winning record (2-1-1). Perhaps its best result was a 1-1 tie with Argentinos Juniors, the club at which Diego Maradona got his start. Region III's only loss was a 1-0 decision to Estudiantes, which scored 16 goals in its other three games against U.S. competition.

Region I's Cole De Normandie (FC Stars of Massachusetts) and Region III's Neil Ignacio (Legends FC) led all U.S. players with three goals apiece.
