Powerstrikers came from behind in last three games to take the title!

The Powerstrikers U14 Girl-Red team took home the Spring 2019 Illinois Cup in Rockford, with thrilling come-from-behind victories in each of their last three games! 

After splitting their first two group stage games, the U14 Red team came back to defeat Hawthorn Woods Elite 2-1 to win their group. They followed that up with a 3-1 win over Libertyville FC 1974 Select, finding the back of the net three times in the second half in spite of falling behind early in the game.

The Cup final saw a rematch of the final group game with Hawthorn Woods Elite. After giving up another early goal, the Powerstrikers responded with two goals before the end of the first half, and weathered a series of strong attacks from their opponent to add a third goal late in the game to seal the victory, and take home the silverware!

Congratulations to the players and coaches on an exciting, hard-fought and well deserved title!
