Illinois girls excel at National Cup

Illinois was the only state to claim multiple winners at U.S. Club Soccer's 2009 National Cup VIII Finals at the Hampton Roads Soccer Complex in Virginia Beach, Va.

The Chicago Magic and FCX Black won the U-15 Super Group and U-14 Premier, respectively. A third Illinois, team, the Chicago Fire Juniors Red, lost in a shootout to Crossfire Premier of Washington in the U-15 Super Group.
