Three was the magic number for Southern Indiana girls Jordan Reger and Maggie O’Farrell at the weekend after they reached the championship game at the Crew 3v3 Live tournament in Columbus, Ohio.
The girls, from Sellersburg and Georgetown respectively, were joined by Louisville’s Audrey Vand Der Elst and Fatima Maxwell as part of the Futbol Junkies team. Coached by Jordan’s dad, Greg, they made the U12 final after playing a grueling five games on Saturday.
The Junkies narrowly missed out on the title after losing on penalty kicks in the decider, which took place in Columbus Crew’s stadium on Sunday.
Their performance earned them a place in the national tournament, which takes place at King’s Island on August 7 & 8.
The tournament was held in conjunction with Crew and all players got free tickets to watch the team’s 2-0 victory against New York Red Bulls on Saturday night.
