Five US Youth Soccer National League teams traveled to Weston, Fla., with a chance to clinch division titles before they left. However after the first day of play Saturday only the under-15 Chicago Magic (Ill.) and under-16 GSA 96 Phoenix Red (Ga.) still control their own destiny as every other division will be waiting until March to know who will take home a National League championship.
The Magic surged to the top of the U15 Blue Division with a 4-1 win over GSA Phoenix Red (Ga.), still two points ahead of CESA 96 Premier (S.C.). In the under-16 age group, GSA 96 Phoenix Red stays in control of the Red Division despite a tie.
