7 Team Chicago Players Excel at ODP Interregional Event!
7 Team Chicago Academy players played pivotal roles as their Region II ODP teams emerged victorious at the ODP Interregional Event in Boca Raton, FL over the Thanksgiving week.
Team Chicago Academy-Santos outside back Talise Romain helped her 1996 Region II team to the Interregional title with a 1-0 defeat of Region I, a 1-1 tie against Region III, and a 2-0 win over Region IV.
The 1995 Region II team had an even stronger Team Chicago flavor as 6 of the starters are from Team Chicago Academy-Botafogo. Bryce Banuelos, Gianna Dal Pozzo, Meegan Johnston, Jenna Romano, Rachele Armand, and Zoey Goralski all excelled as Region II defeated Region I 4-0, Region III 2-1, and Region IV 2-1. Bryce Banuelos and Meegan Johnston each scored a goal for Region II and Gianna Dal Pozzo, Zoey Goralski, Jenna Romano, and Rachele Armand anchored a stingy defense while playing great possession soccer out of the back.
Waubonsie Valley H.S. Head Coach Julie Bergstrom was part of the Region II coaching staff at the event, and she put together a 10-minute highlight reel from the game against Region I. Please, sit back and enjoy a very impressive performance by the Team Chicago and Region II girls.
