Omar Salgado contributed a goal and an assist during the Blue team's 3-3 tie against the Reds.
As part of its first training camp of the new year, the Under-20 Men’s National Team played an intrasquad scrimmage yesterday. The game ended in a 3-3 tie between the Red and Blue teams, three goals coming on each side of the half.
Omar Salgado racked up the most points of the U-20s, adding an assist in the first half and a goal in the second for the Blue team. Walker Zimmerman opened scoring for the Blues in the sixth minute, only to see Villyan Bijev equalize for the Reds five minutes later. Salgado’s assist came in the 25th minute as Daniel Garcia pulled ahead for the Blues.
The Red team came out strong for the second half, with Daniel Cuevas leveling the score three minutes in. Salgado returned the lead to the Blues for the third time in the game with a 78th-minute shot off a Duke Lacroix assist. The Reds refused to lose, however, and once again pulled level with the Blues as Jose Villarreal scored in the 90th minute.
The U-20 Men faced off against each other at the Ft. Lauderdale Stadium. Head coach Tab Ramos was very happy with the speed and level of play on both sides of the ball and was impressed by many of the players. Each team consisted of 16 players, and every player saw at least 45 minutes of game time.
