Pro Soccer in the OC

CONGRATULATIONS G2004 White-Martinez!!

Congratulations to Paco Martinez’ G04 White team for making the National Cup Round of 16! In their first year as a flight one team, the team finished their Cup bracket without a defeat, tying SGV Surf (the winners of the Europa North flight) and defeating Legends D2 DA team. The final game against Real So Cal D2 DA was hard fought, with Keeper Marbely Puga denying a PK with a diving save that still proved “not enough” Surf was unable answer a goal scored against them despite more than 10 shots on frame, losing 1-0 in regular time. The battle was well fought for both team and coach in their first year with Surf and in National Cup. We look forward to many good years to come! 

 

State Cup Presidents Finalists – G04 Vasquez!!

Congratulations OC Surf G04 Vasquez

for battling their way to the 2018 Cal South President’s Cup finals! The girls 04 division started with 98 teams, but after three weekends, eight well-deserved wins and a lot of fantastic soccer, OC Surf was prepared for their final match against Slammers FC.

Seventy minutes passed with neither team scoring. Twenty more minutes of overtime didn’t change the 0-0 stalemate.  Notably, OC Surf was the first team in the tournament to deny Slammers a goal. Nerves ran high as penalty kicks would soon decide the winner.  Unfortunately, the opponent prevailed 4-3, ending OC Surf’s bid for the championship.

“Our team didn’t win a single league game a year ago and look at them now,” Said Coach Jose Vasquez. “I couldn’t be more proud of these girls.” Coach Vasquez has deservedly earned the respect of his team, the parents and the OC Surf organization for his proven leadership.

With momentum gaining, OC Surf looks forward to seeing many more significant accomplishments from this hard-working and talented team!

Surf G04 Martinez & Vasquez – Battle for the WIN!!!

“Congratulations to BOTH Surf Flight 1 G04 Championship Game Teams.

Both Coach Vasquez’ and Coach Martinez’ were undefeated heading into the final game of the 2017 Anaheim Surf Winter Classic. The game was a stalemate until midway through the second half, when Martinez’ Captain Grace Ingalls scored off a corner kick launched by Scarlett Ortiz. (Ingalls scored 6 goals in the tournament.) Within minutes Vasquez’ player Emma Munoz answered, scoring a banger from the corner of the 18. The game went to overtime; 1:1. Martinez’ team won in OT, 3:1. Munoz’ shot would be the solo goal of the tournament against Keeper Marbely Puga and her defense; Captain Ayleen Jimenez, Leah Ferris, Abbi Ingalls, Kendall Bettis, Morgan Delgadillo, & Carmen Lopez. What an outstanding battle between two well-coached teams who well represented their club: Go Anaheim Surf!”

G09 Warman – FINALISTS AGAIN!!

They did it again!  Surf G’09 Warman were finalists again.  In playing in their 4th tournament of the summer, our girls qualified for their 3rd finals appearance.  In the Players Cup  Aug. 26/27, the team played 5 games in the heat.  In both elimination games, these little ones came back to score in the final minutes to win in the semis and then force PK’s in the finals. It was really exciting to see the heart and determination of the girls as they never gave up and battled fiercely to win. Although they came up just short in PK finals two weeks in a row, all the parents and players are very happy and proud of their effort and achievement. Congratulations girls!

By 6pm thebreeze was picking up, and so was their momentum. The championship game would be their opportunity to avenge their loss to the bracket winner. Their Surf spirit, teamwork and determination ultimately prevailed and the girls won the championship game 1-0! Congratulations girls!

G2009 Warman – Congratulations!

G2009 Warman – Congratulations!

Congratulations to our Anaheim Surf G’09- Warman team who were finalists at the Orange County Kick-off Classic Aug. 20/21.  In four games, the team gave up only one goal all weekend and battled West Coast to a 0-0 tie in the finals, but came up just short in PK’s.  Our new flight 3 team battled WCFC’s flight 1 team and almost won the championship at the end of regulation. Very proud of our girls and the support of the parents.

Well done! 

Congratulations G2002 Carrillo/Braund!!

* Murrietta Surf Tournament Champions *

Only playing in the 2nd tournament together as a full team, with 4 new players, the girls went undefeated in their bracket – scoring 8 goals and only giving up 1.
The Championship game was a hard fought game as it ended in a 0-0 tie, but the girls stayed focused and got the win in PK’s.
Way to go girls!!!

Congrats B03 Wilson!!

Coach Ryan Wilson and the Anaheim Surf White B03 with their medals for reaching the Championship game at the LA Galaxy OC Invitational.  The boys went undefeated in group play which set up a wild Sunday.  Crescenta Valley SC who ended our boys season last year were waiting for us in the Semi’s.  After a questionable red card early in the game, the boys played down a man and were knotted up 1-1 after regulation.  Anaheim Surf advanced to the Championship game on their 7th penalty kick and 2 amazing saves.  In the Final, after being down 2-0 to a very strong Temecula Valley Hawks team, the boys bounced back to tie the game up 2-2 before giving up the game winner on a counter attack toward the final minutes of the game.

It was a great weekend for our boys who just wouldn’t quit!!
