Villareal leads Pateadores to title

[DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY] Jose Villareal scored both goals to give Pateadores a 2-1 win over FC Dallas in Friday's under-17/18 final at the 2011 Development Academy's Finals Week in Milwaukee.

Villareal, who has been called up by the USA for the U-18 Milk Cup tournament, scored on a free kick in the 5th minute and added the winner in the 81st minute to beat short-handed FCD, which had equalized on former Mexican U-17 Bryan Leyva's goal in the 62nd minute.

Pateadores finished its season with 14 wins in the last 16 matches en route to the title. It also didn't qualify for the playoffs after forfeiting 16 points for using two ineligible players.

It was coached by former UCLA head coach Todd Saldana. His assistant was Hall of Famer Thomas Dooley.
