The Kentucky Fire Junior 98 girls concluded group plat at the Region II Championships, winning in today's match 2-0, following a pair of 1-0 victories in their first two games of Regionals. The girls advanced to the tournament by finishing second in the Midwest Regional League (MRL), behind first place finishers in the MRL, Ambassadors SC (Ohio North). Because Ambassadors SC won their State Championship, KFJ advanced to the 2013 Region II Championship as the MRL wildcard. The girls 2-0 victory on Monday, June 24th secured them a spot in the Girls u15 Region II Semi-Final, which will be hosted Tuesday, June 25th in Des Moines, Iowa. Congratulations to Coach Jonathan Velotta, who has reached at least the Semi-Final round of this event in now three of the past four years, and congratulations to the entire KFJ '98 Girls Team, players and parents! Please join us in wishing the KFJ '98 Girls the best of luck in tomorrow's Semi-Final match!
