Internacional Runners-up in MRL Premier II!
Team Chicago Academy-Internacional U18 finished its Fall season with two home wins.
In the first of the two games, Internacional needed a win against TCSA to secure 2nd place in the MRL Premier II Division. Internacional gave up an early PK goal, but then never looked back and scored three unanswered goals to secure the 3-1 win and 2nd place. Alena Sidwell tied the game and Quincy Kellett got the eventual game-winner before the break. Kiley Czerwinski got the insurance goal early in the 2nd half, and with a little bit better quality in front of goal Internacional could have run up the score considerably.
The second game – an IWSL contest against Team Elmhurst – marked the final home game ever for Internacional. For a number of the players this marked the end of a more than decade-long commitment to Team Chicago and Internacional. The girls went out in style with a convincing 6-1 win behind Alena Sidwell’s hat-trick, a brace by Quincy Kellett, and the final goal by Mallory Mollenhauer. They were assisted by Kiley Czerwinski (2), Anna Tørsløv, Emily Dickens, Jori Romano, Keely Theobald, Mallory Mollenhauer, Miranda Lambert, and Quincy Kellett.
Congrats to the girls on the Runners-up finish in the MRL Premier II Division, and thank you to all of them for their time, commitment, and dedication to Team Chicago and Internacional over the years. And a special thanks to team manager Lynda Sidwell and treasurer Janet LaRocque.
Up next for Internacional are two major college showcases. CASL in Raleigh, NC 11/21-23 and the Disney College Showcase 12/31-1/3.
