Palmeiras Goes 3-0-0 @ College Search Kickoff!
Last month Team Chicago Academy-Palmeiras traveled to Muscatine, IA for one of the largest showcases in the Midwest. Palmeiras started off against the nationally respected Des Moines Menace and began the scoring with a full-volley bomb from Josh Kolzow in the upper-90 a few minutes in. It was a special goal to start the showcase for Palmeiras. TC went on to beat the Menace 3-1.
In game two against against Midstate United, Palmeiras earned a 3-0 win. Palmeiras enjoyed most of the possession and commanded the game. It was a great win as the game got chippy but our boys remained in control to show their skill.
Game three presented a large task on Sunday that put Palmeiras deadlocked 0-0 at the half against FC Fusion (IA). Depleted by injuries Palmeiras entered the second half with eleven to finish the game in a heat warning. The start of the second half began a barrage of goals starting right away with a 35 yard bomb from Emerson Beinhauer. Palmeiras scored another four goals in the second half for a convincing 5-0 victory and a perfect 3-0-0 record for the weekend.
Other goals were scored on the weekend by Calum Nettleton, Manuel Magana, Dominic Duffy, and Antonio Magno. In addition, the Palmeiras defense only allowed one goal in 270 minutes of play. The defense was anchored by Spencer Wiese, Jack Olmstead, Connor Lang, and Brady Moody in goal.
We wish the Palmeiras boys all the best as they enter their respective high school seasons.
