Syracuse Blitz Blizzard U-18 Boys Region 1 Champion

New York State West's Syracuse Blitz Blizzard defeated Connecticut's Oakwood Soccer Club to win the Snickers US Youth Soccer Region 1 U-18 Boys Championship title 2-1.  Brian Perry scored the first goal for the Blitz during regulation.  Oakwood came back and tied to drive the match into overtime.  During the OT, a foul near the top of the box gave the Blitz a direct kick.  Mac Wilkie drove the ball straight into the net to seal the golden goal win.  In addition the team was awarded the tournament Fair Play award. 

As the Region 1 U-18 Boys Champion, the Blitz Blizzard will advance to the 2003 Snickers US Youth Soccer National Championships to be played July 22-27 at the Maryland SoccerPlex in Germantown, MD.
