U-15 BNT Wraps Up 2016 with Victories Against Florida Clubs

BRADENTON, Fla. (Nov. 10, 2016) – The U.S. Under-15 Boys’ National Team collected two friendly victories against U.S. Soccer Development Academy clubs in their last training camp of 2016. The BNT defeated Chargers Soccer Club 2-1 and Weston FC 7-0 in a Nov. 8 doubleheader. Both matches took place at Bradenton’s Premier Sports Complex.

U.S. U-15 head coach Dave van den Bergh divided up his 36-player roster into two separate squads, with half of the players facing the Chargers and the other half facing Weston.

The first match against the Chargers was a stalemate until the 31st minute, when Victor Cano was able to give the BNT a 1-0 lead. Nick Andersen added his own tally just six minutes later, bringing the scoreline to 2-0 in favor of the U.S. at the half. The Chargers then cut the U-15’s lead in half in the 47th minute, but the U.S. defense was able to stop the Chargers’ attack in its tracks for the rest of the match, bringing the final score to 2-1 for the USA.

The second match kicked off just two hours later, and this time the other half of the U-15 squad came swinging out of the gates. The USA found a 2-0 lead against Weston in the first 10 minutes of the match, with Daniel Robles scoring in the very first minute and Alfonso Ocampo-Chavez finding the net in the 9th. Gilbert Fuentes and Joseph Scally added to the score in the 25th and 36th minutes, respectively, to give the U.S. a 4-0 lead at halftime.

George Bello joined the goal fest four minutes into the second half, while Ocampo-Chavez and Robles each recorded a brace, scoring in the 51st and 66th minute, respectively. As the U.S. offense was firing on all cylinders, goalkeepers Damian Las and Aaron Cervantes shared a shutout in the U-15 BNT’s 7-0 victory.

This domestic training camp successfully culminated the 2016 scheduled programming for the U-15 BNT.
