U-17 '90 MNT Fall to Augusta Fireball 4-0

CLEMSON, S.C. (July 18, 2006) - The U.S. Under-17 ’90 Men’s National Team fell to the Augusta Fireball, 4-0, this afternoon in Clemson, South Carolina, to finish up their weeklong training camp which was held in nearby Athens, Ga.

The U.S. traveled to Clemson for two games against the Augusta Fireball after completing their 30-player training camp at the University of Georgia in Athens, Ga. Hackworth divided the 30 players into two teams for the matches against the Fireballs. In the other match, the U.S. defeated the Augusta Fireball, 3-2.

The U.S. roster for the camp was a mix of players currently in U.S. Soccer’s U-17 Residency Program and players that were invited in by head coach John Hackworth, as he continues to scour the player pool before naming the 40-player Residency roster for the fall semester (which begins Aug. 21).

“Our camp here in Athens went really well and it definitely helped us as we move toward the next semester of Residency,” said Hackworth. “We wanted to make our ’90 and ’91 pool of players as large as possible and over the past nine months we’ve looked at 78 players. Not just 78 players with their club teams, but 78 players that we’ve actually had in with us for a national team camp, which give us a better chance to really get an understanding of the player’s ability and their personality. It’s been extremely healthy. The pool of players is not only large, but talented and that makes our job of picking a certain number pretty tough.”

In the 4-0 loss, Augusta scored three goals in the first half to set the tone on the day. The first goal in the 13th minute was an unbelievable 35-yard strike by midfielder Mark Bucholz that found the upper left corner of the goal.

Tomak Charowski tallied 10 minutes later and Bucholz scored his second goal on the day, this one off a free kick, before the end of the half.

The final goal came from the foot of forward Fred Moojan, who finished a corner kick from Phil Raby.
