U.S. U-20 Women Head to Maryland for Pan-Am Prep

CHICAGO (June 4, 2007) - In its final training camp before heading to Brazil for the 2007 Pan-American Games, the U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team will hold a training camp in Maryland as head coach Jillian Ellis brings in 24 players for eight days from June 9-16, a period that will include scrimmages against two W-League teams.

As the Pan-American Games is an “open” tournament for women, Ellis will bring four “overage” players into this camp, none of whom who are age-eligible for the 2008 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup, the ultimate goal of this team, to be held at the end of next year in Chile.

Those “overage” players are forwards Michele Weissenhofer and Lauren Cheney (who spent most of the last three months in Residency Training Camp with the full Women’s National Team), midfielder Amanda Poach (a member of the FIFA All-Star Team at the 2006 U-20 WWC in Russia) and defender Brittany Taylor.

Ellis also named four players just graduating from high school in Gatorade Girl’s National High School Player of the Year Melissa Henderson, a forward from Garland, Texas, headed to Notre Dame, and defender Meghan Klingenberg from Pennsylvania and forward Rachel Givan from Mississippi, both headed to UNC, and midfielder Kylie Wright, who will attend UCLA. Ellis also named the Parade Girl’s High School Player of the Year, junior Teresa Noyola, who at 17 is the young player on the roster.

For the first time, Ellis will have on her roster the three players from U.S. team that competed in the 2006 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Championship who are age-eligible for the next U-20 WC, in midfielder Tobin Heath and forwards Casey Nogueira and Kelley O’Hara, all of whom spent some time training with the full Women’s National Team in 2007. Ellis also gives a first call-up to midfielder Nikki Washington, who performed so well for UNC during the NCAA Final Four last fall. Ellis has some serious height in her goalkeeper corps, calling in 5-foot-11 Chantel Jones, 5-foot-9 Alyssa Naeher and 6-foot Kristin Olsen. The camp may have an emphasis on attacking as Ellis has called in 10 forwards among the 24 players.

While in Maryland, the U-20s will take on the Virginia Majestics on June 12 and face the Washington Freedom on June 14. The Pan-Am games will be held in Rio de Janeiro from July 12-26 and will feature two groups of five teams each with Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay, Canada, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama and the USA participating on the women’s side. Matches will be held on July 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 23 and 26.

U.S. U-20 Women Win Both Matches in England

CHICAGO (May 14, 2007) - The U.S. Under-20 Women's National Team won both of its matches in England, downing the Leeds Ladies, 3-1, on May 10 as forward Melissa Henderson tallied twice and Gina DiMartino added a single score, and defeated the Blackburn Ladies, 2-0, on May 12 as forward Whitney Hooper got a goal and an assist and midfielder Teresa Noyola add the other goal.

The U-20s were supposed to play the first match on May 8 against the Everton Ladies, but the game was cancelled due to an unplayable field.

Against Leeds, the 18-year-old Henderson scored in the 13th minute off an assist from Noyola, before making it 2-0 in the 39th minute, this time off a feed from midfielder Michelle Enyeart, who also assisted on the USA's third goal. Leeds pulled a goal back just before halftime but DiMartino, the younger sister of former U.S. U-20 and current U.S. U-21 Tina DiMartino, put the game away with a goal in the 74th minute.

The USA dominated Blackburn, out-shooting them 25-3, but could not find the net until the 72nd minute when Hooper scored off an assist from Hendreson. Noyola, one of the youngest players on the roster, put the game away in the 80th minute, this time off an assist from Hooper.

U.S. head coach Jillian Ellis is preparing the team for the Pan-American Games to be held in July in Brazil, as well as qualifying for the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, to be held at the end of next year in Chile. CONCACAF qualifying will be sometime in the second quarter of 2008.

U.S. Under-20 Women Head To England For Three Matches

CARSON, Calif. (May 7, 2007) - The U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team and head coach Jillian Ellis headed to Manchester, England for three matches against top English women’s clubs.

The U-20s will play Everton Ladies on May 8, the Leeds Ladies on May 10 and the Blackburn Ladies on May 12. Leeds and Blackburn may be without some National Team players as England plays Northern Ireland in a European Championship qualifier on May 12 and has a friendly on May 17. Everton, however, could have as many as nine National Team players in its side for the first match of the tour.

Ellis, who was born and grew up in England before coming to the USA at the age of 15, continues to form a pool of players that will look to qualify the USA for the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup that will be held at the end of next year in Chile. Qualifying is tentatively set for the second quarter of 2008. 

Players born on or after January 1, 1988, are age-eligible for the next U-20 Women’s World Cup. Most of the players on the roster were born in 1988, with several in 1989 and one in 1990 in midfielder Teresa Noyola.
