CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (Nov. 26, 2008) - The U.S. Under-15 Girls’ National Team got a 90th minute goal from forward Cat Parchinski, but fell by a 2-1 score on Nov. 26 to the Region II 1992 Olympic Development Team in its second match of the 2008 Thanksgiving Internationals.
Region II scored 17 minutes into the match as a cross was bobbled by U-15 GNT goalkeeper Anna Cassell and then finished by Arin Gilliland from close range. The score remained the same until six minutes remained and Region II scored on a counter-attack off a U.S. corner kick. Kelsey Smigel broke away at midfield, rounded substitute ‘keeper Molly Poletto and slotted home.
The U-15s pulled a goal back with seconds left in the match as Parchinski finished a header off a cross by Kaysie Clark from the left wing. The U.S. U-15s, who are playing three matches against girls a year older, finish the tournament against the Region III ODP Team on Nov. 28.
