Congratulations to the Santa Clara Sporting 00B White Team for winning the Juventus Tournament of Champions U13 Gold Divison on August 4th. The boys went undefeated in five tough games.
Santa Clara drew a 0-0 tie in their first game on Friday night against the West Coast Warriors in a very hard fought match. The second game was against San Ramon Azuri 01B White, and Sporting won 3-0. The team picked-up momentum and crusied to a 5-0 victory over the Juventus Fury; the team was second in bracket and earned a spot in the Semi-finals on Sunday. The team won their semi-final game 3-0 over the PSV Union team, and would battle the West Coast Warriors once again for the championship title.
The Warriors put up another good fight and both teams dueled back and forth but could not score in regulation play. The first score of the game came from Santa Clara with less than a minute into overtime and stood the final 9 minutes for Sporting White 00B to take home the trophy! The team scored 12 goals and gave up none the whole tournament. A job well done!
