Highlights from Day 3:
In their U-13 Girls match against Eclipse Select (IL), Michigan Hawks (MI) player Natalie Viggiano got started speedily with her 2nd minute goal. Her teammate Alexa Spaanstra followed just ten minutes later. Eclipse Select wasn’t going down without a fight, and in the second half Amanda DiNardo and Lily Sykes tied up the game. With just six minutes remaining in the game, Michigan’s Madison Donley found the back of the net, giving her team the win, moving them to semifinals, and allowing them to go undefeated in pool play.

The second half Michigan’s Samuel DeLoy and Daniel Wright added to the count in the 43rd and 45th minute. McMahon Stauder got on the scoreboard in the 64th minute with Jonathan Ackfeld’s goal, but Michigan’s dominance ultimately gave them three more points and a spot in the semifinals.
 
On the U-15 Girls field, KFJ Premier Red (KY) saw a 2-0 win against Rush Wisconsin Nike (WI). A pair of goals by Keyli Borman in the first and second halves helped KFJ defeat Rush Wisconsin to move on to the semis and fight to become regional champions.
