Congratulations to the Anaheim Surf GU14 team for making it to the quarter finals of this year’s San Diego Surf Cup.
The ladies showed that they have what it takes to compete against “The Best of the Best”.  The team opened up against a top ranked No. Cal team, the USA Stars during pool play. Solid teamwork led to a 2-1 victory for the girls.  For the afternoon game, Legends FC was the opponent.  Another solid effort led to a 0-0 tie.  The final pool play game on Sunday was against Crossfire from Seattle.  With our girls needing a victory to advance out of pool play as the bracket winner, and early goal by Crossfire made the challenge greater.  Showing the character and heart of our club and coach, the girls tied the game at 1-1 and despite some late opportunities they could not put Crossfire away.  The game ended in a tie and the bracket winner was Crossfire based upon accumulated points.  Based on the points the team tied for the third wildcard spot and had to face Fullerton Rangers for penalty kicks to determine who would advance. The team was able to defeat Fullerton and faces Eagles (Camarillo) in the quarter final.  Riding the emotion of advancing on penalty kicks the Surf ladies took an early 1-0 lead. The Eagles, as the number one team in the region, were not about to lie down and let it be an easy game.  They scored two goals and had a 2-1 lead in the closing minutes of the game.  With continued pressure the Surf ladies tied it up at 2-2. Time expired and left the ladies with more penalty kicks to decide their fate but this time they were not able to advance.  A great showing left the girls as quarter finalists without a single loss on the pitch in regulation.  Great job ladies as being part of the best of the best and representing Anaheim Surf !

ANAHEIM SURF BU13 TAKE HOME THE TROPHY

B13 Takes Home the Trophy

Surf_BU13
This past weekend, our own Surf BU13 team won their bracket championship in this year’s Anaheim Surf Invitational. The tournament saw them open up with league rival Legends SC. That hard-fought match ended in a 1-1 draw, as Legends scored the equalizer with seven minutes to play. The unfortunate 4-0 loss in the second game, to North Valley SC, put the Surf in a hole heading into their final scheduled match. But the boys rallied for a solid 2-1 win over Inland Empire Surf. That was just enough to get Anaheim into the final, which was a rematch against Legends. Much like the first match, the Surf jumped out to a lead. But also like the first match, Legends tied it up in the second half. 70 minutes of soccer was not enough to decide this one … and neither was the additional 10 minutes of extra time. This championship match went to penalty kicks, where the Surf barely edged out their opponent.
 
Congratulations to the Anaheim Surf BU13 team and coaches Reuben Fonseca, Al Fonseca, and Ryan Wilson on representing the club with a well deserved championship!
