Brasília Semi-Finalist in Indianapolis!
Team Chicago Academy-Brasília traveled to Indianapolis this past weekend to compete in the prestigious FC Pride Cup. Playing in the Premiere Division against three challenging opponents tested the team.
Brasília opened the tournament with a 3-0 victory over Javanon, the #2 ranked team from Kentucky. In their second match on Saturday, Brasília squandered a 2-0 lead in the last ten minutes and tied Carmel United, from Indiana, 2-2. On a very cold and wet Sunday morning, Brasília dominated and beat St. Francis Xtreme, from Indiana, 3-0.
With a 2-0-1 pool play record, Brasília moved into the semi-finals where they met the host team FC Pride. In an evenly played game, Brasília gave up a corner kick goal with eight minutes to go in the match after a great save by keeper, Megan Keefer, on a penalty kick and lost 1-0.
