Falcons Win Superclubs Champions Cup!
Team Chicago Academy-Falcons won the Superclubs Champions Cup in Rockford this weekend.
They started out falling to 2-1 to a tough Chicago Blast side, but they then bounced back in impressive style with a 5-0 win against Tigres de Cicero. In the 3rd and final round-robin game the Falcons tied 2-2 against Midwest Red Devils, which was all they needed to advance to the final.
In the championship game Falcons avenged the earlier loss to the Chicago Blast in a rematch of the first game. In a drama & excitement-filled championship match, the Falcons battled hard to emerge victorious.
As the final seconds of regulation closed in, Emerson Beinhauer was awarded a penalty kick, which he converted to force extra time. Strong defensive play from Matt Montrose, Connor Ahler, and Trey Eichamer led the team and kept the high pressured Blast offense off the score board. Again, as the finals seconds closed in of extra time, Alfonso Pizzo received a pass from Adam Bose and beat the Chicago Blast goalkeeper to win the tournament in exciting fashion.
