Four Team Chicago Players Excel at ODP Inter-Regionals!
Over the Thanksgiving week four Team Chicago players and Technical Director Phil Nielsen represented Illinois and Region II at the ODP Inter-Regional Tournament in Boca Raton, FL with distinction.
Alyssa Bombacino and Bailee Witt starred on the 2000 Region II team team that beat the U14 National Team 2-0 in a game where Alyssa scored the game-winning goal and Bailee helped secure the shutout. The 2000 Region II team also tied Region IV 1-1 where Alyssa got the goal, and lost 2-0 to Region I.
Natalie Massa was an integral member of the 2001 Region II team that for the second year running won the event with a perfect record. Natalie Massa started on a back-line that defeated Region III 2-1, Region IV 4-2, and Region I 2-0.
Katelyn Nardulli was an integral member of the 2002 Region II team that also won the event with a perfect record for the second year running. The team was head coached by Phil Nielsen and beat Region III 2-0, Region I 2-0, and Region IV 4-2.
Congrats to all the players who represented Team Chicago with such excellence.
