Alpharetta Ambush wins USYSA national title
The Alpharetta Ambush cruised to the U.S. Youth Soccer Association’s Under-17 boys national championship last week, dominating both group play and the finals, defeating a St. Louis team 4-1.
The Ambush was the only Georgia team to win a national title this year. GSA’s Phoenix Red team, which also made the boys U-17 field, tied the Ambush 1-1 in group play.
Forward Karl Chester, who is committed to play college soccer at Alabama-Birmingham, scored seven goals during the tournament, which was played in Overland Park, Kan.
Also reaching the nationals were the Concorde Fire Elite (U-13 boys), NASA Elite II (U-16 girls) and AFC Lightning (U-18 girls).
