Surf team wins Presidio

The San Diego Surf boys’ under-11 team won the 2009 Presidio League title with an undefeated record.

Presidio’s AAA division represents the most elite competitive soccer clubs from the U.S.-Mexico border to Temecula.

The Surf squad had a strong season, scoring 67 goals in 14 games, letting only eight goals get past it.

Most of the team has been together for four years, starting as the Carmel Valley Sharks coached by Jerome Watson. Watson led the boys to their first undefeated season in 2007. For the last two years, coach Richard Simonyi has led the squad, focusing on strengthening its passing game to help it on a bigger field and in 11-player competition. Last year, the whole team switched to the Surf soccer club, where they have flourished in the skill clinics and competitive scrimmages against other Surf teams.

The team celebrated another big success in December, having collected 1,017 items in a canned food drive. The boys “adopted” a small church in Mexico and set out going door-to-door collecting food and other items, such as hygiene products, diapers, baby food, clothing and blankets.

Their next big challenge is competing in the State Cup tournament in January.
