[NATIONAL LEAGUE] Team Chicago Academy Botafogo (U-18s) and Match Fit Chelsea Colchester (U-16) both clinched girls divisional titles in the 2013 U.S. Youth Soccer National League. They were among eight teams to clinch berths at this summer's National Championships in Overland Park, Kan.

Team Chicago, which has has three National Team pool members and 17 players have committed to play collegiate soccer, became just the third girls team in the history of the league to finish with a perfect 7-0-0 record. In doing so, it scored 23 goals, the second best mark from a team, and conceded just three.
