U.S. U-15 BNT Picks Up Pair of Wins over L.A. Rampage and Real So Cal


CARSON, Calif. (Dec. 12, 2008) -- The U.S. Under-15 Boy's National Team, made up of players born in 1994, picked up two wins against the U-16 teams of  LA Rampage and Real So Cal.

Against the Rampage, the U.S. took a 20th minute lead on a Bryan Celis goal after he stripped a defender and put the ball in with a low shot. The Rampage got a goal back just minutes before halftime, but Joel Salmeron scored the game-winner in the 75th minute to give the U.S. the 2-1 victory. Salmeron carried the ball to the top of the penalty area and hit a long-range shot past the Rampage 'keeper.

Five goals were scored in the first half of the USA's game against Real So Cal. Jim Barlow's squad scored three goals in the first 32 minutes to take a 3-0 lead before Real So Cal battled back. Snoh's first goal came on a long-range blast that sailed into the upper corner of the goal. Matthew Dunn doubled the USA lead in the 30th minute on a well-placed shot from long range and Alejandro Guido made it 3-0 in the 32nd when he finished a slotted ball from Snoh.
