U-17 MNT Picks Up Two More Wins on Exhibition Tour


CHICAGO (October 11, 2008) -- The U.S. Under-17 Men's National Team continued their Development Academy Exhibition Tour, with split squad picking up two wins over the Richmond Strikers. The U.S. topped the U-15/16 Strikers 6-1, and the U-17/18 team 2-1.

Joel Nash and Dominick Sarle each scored twice, while Dustin Corea and Alfred Koroma tallied once in the early game. U.S. goalkeeper Jonathan Kempin was called upon to make two saves in the win.

Against the U-17/18s, the U.S. fell behind in just the first minute, but answered back quickly as Soony Saad leveled the score in the fifth. Saad picked up an assist on Luis Gil's game-winner in the 29th minute to give the U.S. the win.
