A BIG Congratulations to the Santa Clara Sporting 97G White Team for winning the 2012 Sporting Girls Invitational in the U14 age group today! The girls won the championship match with a 1-0 score over their sister team, the Santa Clara Sporting 97G Green team. The Sporting 97G White team tied their first bracket game on Saturday morning with a 1-1 draw against the Burlingame SC Lightning 97G, then beat the ACC Mavericks United 3-0 and MVLA SC Pride Black 97G 3-0 on Sunday to set themselves up for a showdown against the Sportring 97G Green Team. The U14 Final was well played by two very talented Santa Clara teams, and the White team was able to break the defensive deadlock and score the solo goal to win the championship trophy. Congrats to all the players, and coaches Veronica Zepeda Cashman, Dave Ballard and Henry Silveira for all the hard work and dedication to reach this new milestone.
