Latest Happenings

Congratulations goes out to Andrew Ricks and the Lane Tech boys soccer team for once again winning their sectional and making it farther than any other city school in this year's state tournament.

The Chicago Fire advanced to the conference final by beating DC United in a two game series 3-2. The second game was exciting with the Fire roaring out to a two goal lead only to watch it disappaer in a classic United surge that saw United score two in the second half. But the Fire were able to hold on and now face the New England Revolution this Thursday. The game will be televised on ESPN 2 at 6:30 Central. I think with their new look, the Fire can beat the Revolution (like they did a month ago) and get to the MLS Cup this year. Get your plane tix to DC ready! You can keep track of all the Chicago Fire and MLS activities by visiting their web site.

Chicago Soccer is having a huge sale on 06-07 gear. Get over there to get some great gear at a great price.

Joe Trost has started a soccer blog that I think you check out.

Let me know if things are happening with your team or organization.
