U.S. Beach Soccer Off to Winning Ways in 2015 CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship Opener

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (March 28, 2015) – The U.S. Beach National Soccer Team kicked off the 2015 CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship with a 4-1 victory against Group C opponent Antigua & Barbuda on March 28 at Estadio de Fútbol de Playa Costa del Sol in San Salvador, El Salvador.

Keeping things close in the first period, Antigua & Barbuda aimed to pack the defensive area with players and prevented the U.S. from building many significant chances.

But, the second period was a different story, and the USA quickly converted with its first goal coming in the 13th minute after Andrew Feld sent a right-footed strike inside the near post.

Antigua found the equalizer minutes later, but a perfect goal kick from U.S. goalkeeper Chris Toth went straight from his own goal area into the opposing net in the game’s 20th minute.

Toth’s goal, the eventual game-winner, spurred the USA on to find its rhythm and continue the pressure. Lewie Valentine sent a header to the near side netting in the 25th minute and U.S. captain Nicholas Perera added a bicycle kick-goal in the 35th minute to close out the third period and the match.

The USA faces Barbados on Monday, March 30 at 9 p.m. ET and the Bahamas on March 31 at 9 p.m. ET to wrap up Group C play. Beach Soccer Worldwide is streaming all the tournament games live. For game results and updates you can also visit ussoccer.com or follow on Twitter @ussoccer.
