Only four defending champions left in Region II youth championships

Only four defending champions advanced to Wednesday's finals at the US Youth Soccer Region II Championships, and they are all on the boys' side: U-15 Michigan Wolves, U-16 and U-18 Chicago Magic and U-17 FC Milwaukee. Eclipse Select of Illinois sent four teams to last year's US Youth Soccer National Championships and looked to do the same this year, all four teams advancing to the semifinals lost. Michigan's Bloomfield Force picked up the biggest win with a 4-0 victory over FC Milwaukee on a pair of goals each by Laura Heyboer and Amanda Bowery.
