It was a great back-and-forth game with Midwest United taking a 1-0 lead into halftime. The defending state champion Hawks found the back of the net early in the 2nd Half to equalize the game at 1-1.  

With 19 minutes to go in the game, Midwest United scored on a free kick from about 25 yards to take the lead again.  The defense stood strong, holding off the Hawks' attack for the remainder of the game. 

The championship represents the second in club history.  The first was won in 1987 by the U18 Boys.  This is a great achievement for the team, Club, and the Kalamazoo area.

Congratulations Girls!
