June 18, 2009 - Xtreme Soccer League (XSL) - Chicago Storm News Release


The conditions were ... um ... not the best last Saturday, but being the pros they are, the Chicago Storm and Milwaukee Wave played the Chicago leg of the Beach Soccer Xperience last Saturday at Montrose Beach.

Two goals by Beto and another by Ian Bennett helped the Storm to a 5-4 halftime lead, but Milwaukee pulled away in the second half for an 8-5 win. Chicago got a great effort from Bayard Elfvin in goal, but he's now with the U.S. national team at the CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championships.

The Storm wishes to offer a big thank-you to the Windy City Wanderers FC, who lauch a beach soccer league this summer at Montrose.

The rematch is at 2 p.m. this Saturday at Milwaukee's Bradford Beach. The weather promises to be better, so consider making a day of it and checking out the Beach Soccer Xperience.



The Storm keeper recorded the victory for the USA on Wednesday as the Americans beat the Bahamas 6-2 in the first game of the CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championships.

The U.S. plays Costa Rica on Friday for supremacy in the three-team group. CONCACAF Champion in 2006 and 2007, the U.S. is almost assured of moving into the semifinals, as the top two teams in the group advance.

CONCACAF sends its top two teams from the six-nation tournament to the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, scheduled this year in Dubai Nov. 16-22.


Chicago Storm Summer Soccer Camps are well under way, with sessions next week in Buffalo Grove, Downers Grove, Chicago and South Barrington. You can still walk up to the site on Monday and sign up, or look to online registration for future weeks.

Don't forget the Storm Chasers Dance Camp, next Monday-Wednesday in South Barrington!
