Three Team Chicago Academy teams traveled to Indianapolis over the Columbus Day Weekend to participate in the FC Pride Cup.

Team Chicago Academy-Bahia had a very successful weekend winning the U12-13 Division. They started off on Saturday morning on a field with less than ideal conditions and came out firing with a shutout over USF Real 5-0. In the afternoon the field and weather conditions were much improved and they took advantage by winning again by a margin of 5-1. These results put them into the semi-finals on Sunday morning and they didn’t disappoint.

Playing against a U13 team from the other division they won 1-0 on a nice goal from Zaira Solis. Solis’ goal came from a great combination play between Paige Miller and Sarah Davies that Zaira collected and showed great poise beating a girl in the box before placing the ball over the keeper.

In the final three different players contributed goals for the 3-0 win and the championship. Shannon Tagler started off the scoring with collecting a ball that came back to her outside the box and she played a well-hit ball over the keeper. Sarah Davies and Zaira Solis contributed the other tallies.

Overall there were many contributions on both sides of the ball leading to the championship, with special recognition to the back four and goal keepers for only allowing one goal the entire tournament.

Team Chicago Academy-Brasilia also had a successful weekend beating SMSC Lightning 2-0, tying Cleveland Impact 0-0, and beating Zionsville 6-1 enroute to the the Championship game. Playing a very strong FC Pride team in the U14 Final Brasilia fell 3-0 to the hosts.

Team Chicago Academy-Cruzeiro played in the U13 Premier Division and beat Tippecanoe 6-0, lost a heart-breaker 3-2 to Norco Pavlacic, and finally tying the hosts FC Pride 0-0.
