U.S. Under-17 '91 Men's National Team Tops Chivas USA in Fall Showcase
CARSON, Calif. (Oct. 6, 2007) – The U.S. Under-17 ‘91 Men’s National Team opened their Development Academy League season with a 3-0 win over Chivas USA Under-16. All three USA goals came in the second half, with Jared Watts and Jack McInerney leading the way with a goal and an assist on the afternoon.
After a scoreless first half, the U.S. took the lead in the 53rd minute when Carlos Martinez drove in a corner kick that found Perry Kitchen’s head, and Kitchen put the ball past Chivas USA goalkeeper Antonio Flores. Watts doubled the lead in the 72nd minute when he received a slotted ball from McInerney and was able to find the back of the net.
McInerney and Watts combined again for the final tally, as Watts played a through ball that McInerney ran onto. The forward ran onto the ball, dribbled around the goalkeeper and put it away to make it 3-0.
The Under-17 ’91 Men’s National Team continues their weekend at the Development Academy Fall Showcase on Monday morning, when they take on the Richmond Kickers.
