Preseason begins with loss to high schoolers
February 4, 2009 (Official Game Summary)

USA U-17s New York
02.04.09 · Preseason

Since no official release was provided, here are the key moments from the matchtracker.

14' Daneligh Borman speeds down the left wing before hitting a low pass to Leonel St. Preux, whose one-time shot slams off the crossbar.

19' Against the run of play, the U.S. right back hits a cross that is actually perfectly placed for a shot. It sails over Danny Cepero's head and tucks into the back of the net. 1-0 U.S.

HALFTIME: U.S. 1, Red Bulls 0. The Red Bulls had several chances to get on the scoreboard but they couldn't finish. Meanwhile, the U17s are ahead on a fluky goal but they kept pace for most of the half.

70' Macoumba Kandji is able to get some space in the penalty box and is knocked down by a U.S. defender. However, the referee waves play on.

77' David Roth corner finds Kevin Goldthwaite, whose goal-bound header is cleared off the line by a U.S. defender!

FINAL: RED BULLS 0, U.S. U17s 1. The Red Bulls had a lot of chances to score and dominated possession but as expected with the first preseason game, their sharpness in front of goal could be improved.
