Under-17s Finish Atop Group At Disney Soccer Showcase


Orlando, Fla. (December 30, 2002) - A young U.S. Under-17 MNT took part in the Disney Soccer Showcase this weekend in Orlando, Fla., posting two wins, two losses and a draw. 

The U.S. team played without 19 of the players in residency - including co-captains Corey Ashe and Brandon Owens – as the players were allowed to play in the showcase with their regional teams. U.S. head coach John Ellinger looked at several new players in the showcase, bringing in six players who had not previously played with the U.S. Under-17s, including Rodrigo Hidalgo, who scored twice in a 3-0 win over Region II on December 28. 

Freddy Adu led the way for the U.S., scoring three goals and recording one assist in four matches. 

The U.S. lost this morning’s match to Region III when two players who have been in the full-time residency program – Cameron Lewis and Michael Harrington – combined to score the gamewinner just five minutes from time.  The Under-17s will now travel to Seminole, Fla., where they will face AC Milan on January 1 at the Lake Sylvan Sports Complex.
