Team Chicago Academy-Botafogo won all 3 Midwest Regional League games in Oconomowoc, WI this weekend to take the lead in the Division.

Saturday Mid-Rivers United was defeated 2-1 on goals by Molly Piech and Dani Pitaro assisted by Zoey Goralski (2), Jorie Clawson, and Gianna Dal Pozzo followed by a 3-1 win over WC Academy on goals by Zoey Goralski, Kendall Wilde, and Dana Miller assisted by Hope D’Addario and Kaitlin Johnson.

Sunday Botafogo easily defeated St. Louis Scott Gallagher (SLSG) 5-0 on goals by Jenna Romano (2), Zoey Goralski, Zoe Ekonomou, and Darby Moran while Kiley Dunning picked up the shutout in goal.

Next weekend Botafogo travels to Grand Rapids, MI for the final 3 MRL games, and 2 wins and a tie will be enough to win the Division and secure promotion to the Premier Division for the 2011 season.
