Congratulations to coaches Andy Thomas and Gordy McBean on coaching our BU10 Blue to the last 8 of State Cup. Along the way they beat strong teams including Santa Barbara, West Coast, Cardiff, Sherman Oaks and San Diego Football Academy. The boys were unfortunate to lose under very challenging conditions in Lancaster, but they did us all proud!
Laguna United FC GU13, coached by Scott Miller, took home top honors at the Tustin Winter Cup. The girls won the Top Flight through an exceptional offensive performance leading all teams with 11 goals scored. The midfielders and defenders battled an array of talented squads and dug deep, never giving up. The team goalie fought to secure every inch of our goal providing the team with some phenomenal saves. The girls had to battle through the rain, poor field conditions and multiple injuries but finished the tournament off in style. The team is now hitting their stride as they begin their preparations for National Cup.
Coach Scott got a great picture of the girls as the sun was rising before an early game.
Congratulations to Davor Fabulich and his BU17 Blue team for winning Flight One of the prestigious Nomads Tournament held in San Diego. The tournament attracts the best teams from across the country and includes teams from other nations also. The Flight contained 32 top teams in 8 brackets and the boys played the first five games without giving up a goal and winning every game. They met Beach (one of the best SCDSL Flight One teams) in the final where they battled back from 2-0 down to eventually win 4-3. To make the achievement that much more special the boys pulled the victory off with only one sub on the bench due to injuries. Way to make the club proud lads!!!!!
