Congratulations to the Santa Clara Sporting 99Girls White Team for winning the 2011-12 U12 Girls CYSA President’s Cup Tournament on February 12th with a 2-1 victory over the Redwood Alpine Strikers 99 Red Team. The Sporting girls competed in 5 games over the past month when they played their first game in Morgan Hill and beat the CV Crossfire 99 Red Team 2-0. The girls won their second game 1-0 against the Mad River Johnson team, then lost to Redwood Alpine Strikers 99 Red. Santa Clara won their bracket play and traveled to Elk Grove to face the PYSL Roseville Zoom team, and won that semi-final match 1-0. That victory created a rematch against the Redwood Alpine Strikers in the U12 Girls Finals where Santa Clara defeated Alpine to bring home the President’s Cup. Congratulations to the players, coaches and parents!
