BOCA RATON, Fla. (Nov. 26, 2014) – The 2014 US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (US Youth Soccer ODP) Girls Thanksgiving Interregional concluded its third day of play on Wednesday with the 1997 and 1998 age groups taking the field at Sand Pine Park in Boca Raton, Fla. The remainder of the five-day tournament, which takes place November 24-28, will be held at Spanish River Athletic Park in Boca Raton, Fla. The event features the nation's elite girls teams in the 1997-2000 age groups from each of the four US Youth Soccer Regions.
The nearly 300 players participating in the event have been selected from US Youth Soccer State Association and Regional level evaluations. Throughout the week, players will attend training sessions and compete in matches against other Regions, in front of U.S. Soccer national staff and collegiate coaches to maximize their exposure for selection to the next level of play.
With programs in all 55 US Youth Soccer State Associations, US Youth Soccer ODP, the original Olympic development program, is available to any player. US Youth Soccer ODP is the only elite player development program that can claim members of Major League Soccer, the National Women’s Soccer League, and the majority of current and past national and youth national team members, as alumni.

Region I’s Rebecca Rossett acted quickly, giving Region I the lead within the first 10 minutes of the match.
