Real Salt Lake's under-17s lost the Generation Adidas Cup final today on penalties, tying 1-1 in regulation and losing 3-2 on spot kicks.

RSL was given a rematch of their Tuesday penalty win over Stoke City today in the Generation Adidas Cup final, and just like that one, penalties were the decider. Stoke City's goalkeeper, Tommy Dyche, vitally made two penalty stops, and RSL hit the woodwork twice throughout.

Sebastian Saucedo scored the opener from a long distnace free kick that skipped past everyone and nestled into the far side of the goal. That goal put him in the lead for the tournament's Golden Boot.

Julien Ngoy, a Belgian midfielder Stoke City signed ahead of the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Real Madrid, scored the second-half equalizer. The Stoke attack capitalized on a few moments of indecision from Real Salt Lake to find space snide the box, and the finish was simple but effective.

Sebastian Saucedo was given at least some form of consolation, as he won the MVP and the Golden Boot for his impact across the tournament.
