The Santa Clara Sporting ’98 Green team celebrated victory last weekend to become champions of the U12 Gold Division in the 2nd annual Stanford Winter Turf Tournament. The girls kicked-off the tournament last Saturday with a big 4-1 win over the Orchard Valley Rampage Gold team, then followed-up that game with a 2-0 victory over the Mustang Strikers. On Sunday, the team beat the Mill Valley Rockers 3-0 to place Sporting into the championship game. Santa Clara had a tough Belmont Legends team, but came-out on top with a 2-1 victory to bring home the championship cup. The Sporting ’98 Green Girls (U12) Team is now ranked #3 in Northern California and #4 in the Western Region by GotSoccer.com. Congratulations to the players, coaches and parents!
