The 2015 Sporting Girls Invitation Soccer Tournament came to close yesterday, and three Santa Clara Sporting Teams won their Championship games after a long 3-Day weekend of competition. The Santa Clara Sporting Club hosted 140 elite girls soccer teams from Texas, Nevada and California during the annual Memorial Day Tournament at the Santa Clara Youth Soccer Park and Morgan Hill Soccer Complex.

U12 - West Valley Magic dominated their championship game from the very start of the match and defeated the West Coast Soccer Fury Team 3-0 to win the U12 title. The Magic Team scored 16 goals and shut-out their opponents all weekend never allowing any goals into their net.
U13 - The ACC Mavericks Dynamite Team defeated the Davis Legacy 02 Red Team in a very close championship match and won 1-0 to claim the U13 SGI Crown.
U14 - The SMC Stars 00G Academy Team fought a tough battle against the Bay Oaks Botagofo 2000G Team in the championship match. Neither team could find the winning goal all the way through regulation and 10 minutes of extra time. SMC won the penalty kick shoot-out with a 4-3 score to win the U14 tite.
U15 - The Santa Clara Sporting 99G Green Team won their 3rd Consecutive Sporting Girls Invitational with a 2-0 win over cross-town rivals CV Crossfire 99G Red. The Sporting team scored 11 goals and shut-out their competition in the five games over the 3-day weekend. Santa Clara was matched-up against the CV Crossfire in the U15 Finals, and both teams traded punches attacking and counter-attacking each other in what seemed like a deadlock game. Until Sporting errupted with two goals right before the first half eneded. The first goal came from a wicked shot from 30 yards out that bent into the back of the Crossfire goal. The CV Team held Sporting scoreless in the 2nd half but never really threaten the Sporting goal.
U16 - The Galaxy Blues Team scored an early first half goal against the Santa Clara Sporting 98G Green Team, then hunkered down in the 2nd half when Santa Clara mounted a flurry of attacks trying to even the score. The Sporting 98s found an equalizer goal off a corner kick with just two minutes left in the game. The U16 Championship game went into extra time and neither team could find a winning goal. So penalty kicks decided the outcome of the game, and the Blues were more profecieint shooting from the penalty spot to win the game 4-1 in penalty kicks. It was a thrilling game played by both teams.
U17 - The Santa Clara Sporting 97G White Team were never threated all weekend and won their 3rd SGI title by defeating the San Luis Obispo Storm Team with a 3-0 score. The Sporting 97s scored 18 goals and only allowed one into their net all weekend.
