CHICAGO (May 9, 2009) – The U.S. U-14 Boy’s National Development Program wrapped up a domestic training camp at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. as 36 players trained from May 2-9.
The team used a pair of friendlies against local Under-15/16 Development Academy clubs on Monday, May 4 to train, falling to Real So Cal (0-2) but defeating Arsenal (3-0). On Wednesday, May 6, one of the U-14 split squads took on the Los Angeles Aztecs U-16s, suffering a close defeat while the other topped the LA Rampage 6-1 behind a hat trick from forward Paul Arriola.
