Highlights from today's matches:
1999 Boys: Region I v. Region III
This game got off to a quick start, as both teams found the back of the net in the early minutes. Region III’s Landen Haig headed home the opening goal in the 2nd minute, but Diego Guerrero responded for Region I with a powerful strike from 20 yards out in the 4th minute to even the score at 1-1. Edison Giron gave Region I a lead it wouldn’t relinquish when he slotted home a goal in the 21st minute, helping Region I to the 2-1 win.
1999 Boys: Region II v. Region IV
The squad from Region IV grabbed the lead just before halftime and added another goal early in the second half to win, 2-0, over Region II. Manuel Sarabia scored from 25 yards away in the 40th minute. Sarabia netted a second goal with a penalty kick in the 50th minute after Preston Judd was fouled in the box, and the Region IV defense did the rest to earn a shutout victory.

A pair of first-half goals by Kai Koreniuk helped Reigon III to a 2-1 win against Region I. Koreniuk made a long solo run with the ball before scoring his first goal in the 5th minute.
