In front of a great crowd, Team Chicago Academy-Botafogo defeated local rivals Chicago Fire Jrs Red 11 1-0 to regain first place in the U17 MRL Premier Division standings.

Zoey Goralski found Zoe Swift for the eventual game-winner 30 minutes into the contest. And strong play from Megan Geldernick in goal – including a lsst-minute PK save – preserved the lead in a tense 2nd half.

Next up for Botafogo in MRL is another home contest against a local rival – Eclipse Select – next Friday 9/30 at 6pm. This game will be part of an MRL double-header as the U15 Team Chicago Academy-Internacional will take on Eclipse Select East at 7:45pm.
