UYSA wins first National Championship

Utah Youth Soccer’s 99 Boys team from the Olympic Developmental Program just won the National Title for the US Youth Soccer Association. They had to play other powerhouse states such as California South, Michigan and Virginia in their pursuit to win the title. ODP is a program that identifies the highest caliber of players which then leads into the U.S. National Teams in the international arena. This is the first team in our Associations history to accomplish such a great feat!

1999 Boys

Utah 99 took home Utah’s first ODP Championship with a 3-1 victory over Virginia 99. Aaron Nixon began the scoring in the 15th minute, only for Virginia’s Giovanni Munoz-Vasquez to respond merely two minutes later. Jonathan Guadarrama scored the eventual game winner off a point blank shot thanks to a lovely feed from Luke Madsen. It was Guadarrama again in the 62nd minute with an insurance goal to give Utah a little breathing room after a strong Virginia push as the match ended 3-1.

 

“We wanted to get a goal early, and we were able to do that, but they responded. In the second half we were able to keep compact and stay disciplined,” Utah captain Easton Embley said. “It was an awesome complex and a great place to play.”
