PHOENIX, Arizona - The fourth ECNL National Event of the 2016/2017 season kicked off on Friday, April 7 at the Reach 11 Sports Complex. The National Event is a showcase for the players and teams against new opponents outside of the normal regular season foes. The opening day had some good team performances, but it also had some sluggish outings with teams struggling to find a rhythm to the game in the dry, hot conditions.
TopDrawerSoccer was on hand for the National Event. Below are the players who stood out from the games that TDS saw on Friday.
