Jamieson and Arriola lead comeback win in Buenos Aires

[USA UNDER-20 MEN] The U.S. under-20 national team won its second game in three days against an Argentine pro reserve team, but it had to rally from two goals down to defeat Defensa y Justicia reserves, 3-2, on Saturday. The U-20s had opened their Buenos Aires camp by beating Racing Club reserves, 2-0.

LA Galaxy rookie Bradford Jamieson IV scored two goals and Tijuana's Paul Arriola added the third to overcome Defensa y Justicia, which opened up a 2-0 lead after just 15 minutes in the 70-minute game.

The Philadelphia Union's Zach Pfeffer and recent Columbus Crew signing Romain Gall each scored a goal in the first half of the first game. New York Red Bulls goalkeeper Santiago Castano needed to make only one save for the shutout.
