The Midwest Regional League (MRL) season is winding down over the next few weekends with some marquee match-ups for Team Chicago Academy teams.
This Sunday, Team Chicago Academy-Santos will host North Shore United at 3:30pm at PlayUSA in a match that will determine the Girls U17 First Division title and promotion to the U18 Premier Division for 2013-14. Both teams are undefeated and with a win Santos will earn the Division title, while with a tie Santos will need two wins in the final two MRL games November 10th and 11th at PlayUSA to secure the title.

Team Chicago Academy-Botafogo will travel to Wisconsin on Saturday and Sunday to take on its two only remaining rivals for the Girls U18 Premier Division title. Coming off an impressive 8-2 win v. Chicago-Inter last Wednesday after a sublime first half performance, Botafogo will need either two ties or at least a win against Lou Fusz Wipke in the Sunday game to retain its Premier Division title and earn a berth into the USYS Regional Championships in Des Moines, IA in June 2013.
On Monday night, Team Chicago Academy-Eagles will travel to Orland Park to take on Chicago Fire in its final MRL game. With a win Eagles will finish 3rd in the Boys U14 First Division and be in contention for a Premier Division spot for the 2013 Spring season.

Meegan Keefer and Madison Lockard shared the shutout in goal. With the win Brasilia finished tied for 2nd in the Girls U14 First Division, and is awaiting final confirmation that it has earned a wild-card into the Premier Division for the Spring.
