Taking second was quite an achievement… In Friday night’s game against SLO they played 3/4 of the game a player short (one of our best defenders was red-carded for a handball within the 18), yet they still won the game 2 to 1. This is the first time this all-star season that the 5-Cities U14B team has defeated the SLO team. Saturday morning’s game was won over Lompoc B, 3 to 0. Saturday evening’s game was against Santa Ynez; another team that the the 5-Cities U14B team had not defeated this season. The game ended at 0 to 0, and went into a 5-player shoot-out. The 5-player shoot-out ended as a tie. In the following alternating shoot-out, our keeper made a great save, and our subsequent shot went in for the win.

The intensity and excitement was truly electric. Sunday morning’s championship game started with Lompoc A scoring three quick goals, but the 5-Cities U14B team held them scoreless the remainder 3/4 of the game and scored once, ending in a 1 to 3 loss.  But the loss was good for 2nd place in the tournament.
