Final game information from the US Youth Soccer website:

In a tight 16U Girls final between BAC Blitz (VA) and Westside Breakers 01 Blue (CA-S), a lone penalty kick goal separated the two sides at the final whistle. Neither team could score a goal in the first half, but both teams worked hard at creating viable opportunities to take the lead. Blitz took the lead midway through the second half when it drew a penalty kick. Virginia Delacruz stepped up and finished her opportunity, giving the Virginia side the lead. Westside tried to tie the game late, but saw its long shot attempt sail over the top of the bar. The Blitz offense kept on the pressure late, thwarting any dangerous chances from Breakers. The final whistle blew and the 1-0 advantage earned BAC Blitz the 16U Girls National Presidents Cup title.

Tournament MVP:

Ginny Delacruz was named MVP player of the tournament!
