The tournament winning goal. The ball came over the wall off a direct kick and Sarah laid out to put it far post!
The Santa Clara Sporting ’95 Girls Team won the 2009 Battle by-the-Bay Soccer Tournament August 15th-16th in Redwood City. The team went undefeated through their bracket with 14 goals for and 1 against to advance to the finals! The girls fell behind early in the first half of the finals, 1 - 0 due to an offside call from the AR that the Center waived off. The girls were fired-up at the break, and came out determined and dominated the second half. In the second half, the Sporting girls had several chances in front of the goal, but could not finish. Even though it was hot and they were down to only two subs, the girls dug deep with 10 minutes left in the match to come from 1 goal down and beat Juventus 2-1. They are hoping to get their injured girls healthy by the Magic Cup. GO SPORTING!!
