Internacional Finishes 4th at Disney College Showcase!
Team Chicago Academy-Internacional U18 finished its final season with a trip to the 3rd place game in the Premier Division of the prestigious Disney College Showcase. Unfortunately, the final game ended in a 1-1 tie against Brams (Canada) who emerged victorious in the ensuing penalty-kick shootout.
Internacional went 2-1-0 in group play, by beating West Pines (FL) and Tophat SC (GA) by identical 3-0 scorelines and losing 3-2 to Ponte Vedra Storm (FL), to qualify for the 3rd place game.
The Disney event marked the end to the Internacional girls’ Team Chicago careers. In its final season Internacional finished as runners-up in the MRL Premier II Division and with a combined Fall record of 17-7-2 and 84 goals for and 45 goals against.
We thank all the girls for their hard work, dedication, successes, and positive energy over the years. They have represented Team Chicago with such class, integrity, and quality. We will miss them, but we are certain that they will continue to do great things on the soccer field in both their final H.S. soccer seasons and their college careers.
Finally, a very special thank you goes out to team manager Lynda Sidwell and team treasurer Janet LaRocque who have dedicated countless hours over the past 6 years to help assure that they Internacional players had the best possible experience.
