Sporting '93 Boys Win Cal-Odyssey Academy Cup


The Santa Clara Sporting ’93 Boys won the 2nd Annual Cal-Odyssey Academy Cup last weekend on September 25th-26th in Fresno. The team competed in scorching 105 degree heat and went undefeated in bracket play, then beat Redwood City rivals Juventus to win the championship.  Sporting opened the tournament on Saturday morning with a 2-0 win over Ave Soccer Academy, then defeated the Heritage Hammers 2-1 in the afternoon. On Sunday morning, they ended-up playing Ace Academy a second time, and had to defeat them in a penalty kick shoot-out 6-5. The final match with the Juventus Black ’93 Team was anti-climatic with a 3-0 win by Sporting. Congratulations for winning the tournament and surviving the weekend with three injuries. Action photos
