Palmeiras Off to a Great Start in State Cup!
Team Chicago Academy-Palmeiras got off to a great start in the IYSA State Cup with a stunning 8-0 victory over Tinley Park Bobcats in their first game of round robin play.
The opening goal came off a cross connecting with Victor Cuevas in the 15th minute of the first half. Max Graf tallied the second goal beating the Tinley Park goalie from 20 yards out. The third goal came off of a perfectly executed counter attack play led by Victor Cuevas, who found Aayush who calmly finished the play to give Palmeiras a 3-0 lead going into halftime.
There was no slowing down as the second half featured even more scoring. Dominic Duffy collected a brace inside 15 minutes after finding himself on the end of two great crosses by Bryan Lobkovich. Bryan would then add to the scoring himself when he beat the Tinley Park goalie with a great shot in the far upper corner from the corner of the 18-yard box. Emerson Beinhauer converted a penalty kick and Aayush slotted home his second of the game to round out the scoring. Brady Moody picked up the shutout in goal.
This weekend Palmeiras turns its focus to MRL play in Rockford.
