SB Soccer Club’s Boys U12 white wins second straight tourney

Congratulations to the Santa Barbara Soccer Club Boys U12 white team for making it two wins out of their last two tournaments.

The boys who play in Coast Soccer leagues prestigious Gold division claimed back-to-back tournament wins over the last two weekends.

In the Real Sol Cal tournament the boys started slowly losing and drawing their first two games in the qualifying group, fortunately other results went their way and through a penalty shoot-out they ventured to the semifinals where they were up against Real Sol Cal White. In a close game, the only goal of the game was a well taken strike by Adrian Rodriguez, which was enough to put them through to the final where they would be up against the formidable San Diego Surf.

Once again one goal was enough to separate the teams, a fantastic build up ended with a sublime strike by Aiden Williams.

In their final tournament before National Cup, the boys participated down south in the DBWV United tournament. This time the team sailed through pool play with 4-1 & 3-1 victories. The boys went on to put in another two excellent performances in the semifinals beating real Sol Cal Black 3-0 and in their closest game of the weekend come out 3-2 winners against Santa Monica United.

Coach Paul Hart said of the boys, “They have really gelled and come together as a team in these tournaments, I am extremely pleased with the way each and every player is performing”.
