Under Armour All-American Game Recap
UA All-American Game Recap
The Annual Under Armour All-American game has always been one of the best games to watch as it showcases top talent about to go into the collegiate level. It's everything you would want in an All-star game with electrifying plays and massive amounts of scoring. With a roster full of top Divison 1 talent, what more could you ask for? Heres our quick recap of the game and how it went down!
The South came out firing as they gained a large lead in the first quarter 7-1. There was a total of 129 total shots during the game by both teams so the opportunities were there. The South seemed dominant during the first half, but the North came back to bring it back within 5 goal game, but that was not enough to bring them into a potential comeback. The South was able to handle the North by winning 22-15 with no real close competition in goal scoring. The game was full of highlights as players wanted to get recognized for a great play, like Jose Boyer (Notre Dame Commit) landing a rusty gate! Attackman Nicky Solomon (UNC) stole the show with 4 goals to help him secure the MVP trophy of the game.
The one thing that lacked in this years All-American game was the lack of celebrations. This game is known for hysterical and clever goal celly's, but this year there wasn't much of that at all. The overused rowing celebration was used but that was really the only one. The past few years there were goal celebrations that made it onto ESPN's SportsCenter.
But one thing that didn't disappoint was the gear that they specifically made just for this game. With the help of Cascade, they created sick custom helmets to distinguish both sides as the North rocked a matte blue Cascade S while the South went with a chrome red finish. Under Armour also hooked up the players with cleats with the chrome finish on the bottom just to top off the amount of awesome gear they receive.
