Vasco Undefeated in the SLSG Showcase!
Team Chicago Academy-Vasco U17 had a very successful weekend playing in the St. Louis Scott Gallagher College Showcase. Vasco finished with a 2-0-1 record in group play with 7 points, while shutting out all three opponents, good for first place in the bracket.
In the first game on Saturday, Vasco played NSA Heat (a team that we had lost to earlier in the season). In the 13th minute Taylor Leskovar got Vasco on the board with a great free kick. Abbie Grzetic (Brasilia) goal in the 55th minute secured the game. The second game on Saturday ended with a in a scoreless tie against Kaw Valley National Impact (KS). The game was an even match with both teams having chances.
The Sunday game was a very physical match with Vasco coming away with an 1-0 win over Tony Glavin – Green (MO). Abbie Grzetic’s goal in the 24th minute was the game-winner.
The back-line of Haley Kueltzo, Jaden Bell, Estelle Jung, Rosie Kenny, Emma Schleining, and Maddie Honer played tremendously all weekend. And, Emma Veselsky, was terrific in goal. Vasco next event will be the Germantown (TN) Showcase in December.
