1. US Youth Soccer Announces the Addition of Mid South Conference (US Youth Soccer)

US Youth Soccer has now introduced a new Conference. The Mid South Conference.

“The Mid South Conference consists of teams primarily from Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee.”

The top teams in the Conference will earn the right to play in the US Youth Soccer Regional Championships. They will also have a chance to earn a spot in the National Tier of the Leagues Program. We hope the introduction of this conference can introduce new opportunities for the league as a whole.

What do you expect from the addition of the Mid South Conference?

3. US U-20 Women’s National Team shuts out China 1-0 in Nike Friendlies (SoccerWire)

In the final match of the 2018 Women’s Nike International Friendlies, the US U-20 Women’s National Team defeated China 1-0. China kept the US off the board in the early going, despite the offensive attacks by the US.

“The USA broke through in the 51st minute when Alexa Spaanstra pounced on a ball in the box and teed-up Isabella Cook for the game-winning goal from close range.”

China tried hard to score the equalizer, but to no avail. The US could not add upon their lead and found it harder to push the ball down field after their initial goal.

“China pushed hard for an equalizer in the game’s last 10 minutes. The U.S. defense held strong as China teed off on a set of dangerous corner kicks, but ultimately secured the 1-0 clean sheet win.”

Truly an exciting game and a great way to end the Nike International Friendlies.

The U-20 Women’s National Team played admirably, what do you see in the future prospects for the US Women’s National Team?
