Team Chicago Academy-Internacional also won both its game in the U16 Girls First Division White. On Saturday Internacional dominanted their MRL opener against Vardar from Michigan in a 2-0 victory.

On Sunday Internacional continued its dominance in this weekend’s MRL games with another win. This time it was a 3-0 win over Waza FC from Michigan.
