    RE: U15 Boys, your 1st sentence does not make sense at all. You say "The Bays beat Albion for the third time in three meetings," then you describe how Albion beat Baltimore two times before losing to them in the championship game. That's not quite "three wins in three meetings." More like 1 win in 3 meetings.

    Great work by Eastside United. They are the second team to win a championship from Oregon. FC Portland won in 1994.
