ODP Rewind

By Erik Lyslo

Nike Friendship Cup

"Wow!" would be the first word that comes to mind for this year's Nike Friendship Cup. On top of Brazil's U20 National coach Luiz Verdini being at the event all weekend, it was great to see a lot of the bigger states back into the Friendship Cup this year, which made the competition that much better.

With the addition of Cal-North and Colorado, and the return of British Columbia, Washington, Cal-South and Utah, every bracket was competitive. Scores and standings for the tournament are available online at www.oregonyouthsoccer.org under the ODP section. As for the Oregon teams, our '92 Boys, '95 Boys and '95 Girls won their brackets in the tournament.

Utah Mountain Friendlies

This was a successful weekend for the '96 groups. Scores are included below, but we clearly were the top state at this event and walked away with a better record than we ever have. The groups were treated to an MLS game between Real Salt Lake and Colorado, and were required to take notes on players who played their position for a test at the end of the weekend. Overall, it was a great weekend for our coaching staff to work on some things with each group and see a high-level game in the process.
