The San Diego Surf Boys Under Eight White team emerged victorious at the So-Cal Cup Soccer Tournament held in Oceanside the weekend of July 9-10. With Coach Dave Currie at the helm, the boys captured the championship game 5-0 against Carlsbad Lightning at the beautiful Mance Buchanon Park in Oceanside. In the first half, Wyatt Gardner charged repeatedly through Lightnings’ tough defense to earn a hat trick. The remaining two goals were scored in quick succession by Charlie Kosakoff in the second half. The game represented a quick turn-around, as Carlsbad Lightning had beaten Surf 2-1 in the round-robin play leading up to the championship game. Surf had dominated in the other round-robin games beating Oceanside Breakers 12-0 and FC Heat 9-1. More than half of the players on the 12-member squad scored at least one goal during these games. As witnessed by the final scores, Surf maintained a solid defense throughout the games. With this promising beginning, the team looks forward to a great season of developing new skills and teamwork.
