Our 03 Girls Red, the current 03 Illinois State Cup Champions, returned from the Midwest Regional Championships, held in Westfield, Indianapolis today.
The girls were placed in a group with the following teams:
CDA Premier (OH-S) - the current #1 ranked team in Ohio South, who placed 5th in this year’s USYSA National League (Blue division).
Cleveland FC (OH-N) - the current State Cup Champions from Ohio North and the #1 ranked team in both the OH-N and Region II.
Sporting Blue Valley (KS) - the current State Cup Champions from Kansas, ranked #1 in Kansas and #5 in Region II.
Game results were:
Game 1 vs CDA Premier - 1-0 win (Evo goal scored by Taylor Korosec, assisted by Sullivan Schubel)
Game 2 vs Cleveland FC - 3-1 loss (Evo goal scored by Taylor Korosec, assisted by Melisa Hadzic)
Game 3 vs Sporting Blue Valley - 2-2 tie (Evo goals scored by Sarah McCracken (2), assisted by Cameron Dinkla (2))
While it wasn’t a fairytale ending for the girls at Regionals, the team finished with a very respectable 1-1-1 record, with their only loss coming against the overall Regionals winners, Cleveland FC.
The girls belong at this truly elite level and will return stronger after this amazing experience!! We’re very proud ladies!! Congratulations!!
