CCA Boys Varsity Soccer Team Grossmont Tournament finalists

The Canyon Crest Academy boys varsity soccer team, led by Head Coach Tom Lockhart and Assistant Coach Sarah Aguilar, achieved great success in the 34th Annual Grossmont Varsity Soccer Tournament  by taking home the Finalist trophy.

The CCA Ravens earned their way to the championship game by defeating a very strong Hilltop soccer team in the semi-final game held on Dec. 17.  It was a hard-fought game on both sides and the score was 1-1 at the end of regulation play.  However, the CCA team claimed victory by scoring a goal near the end of double-overtime, posting a final score of 2-1.

The CCA Ravens then advanced  to the championship game on Dec. 19, where they faced local rival and tough opponent Torrey Pines High School.  It was a thrilling game that once again ended in a 2-2 tie at the end of regulation play.  The score was still tied after double overtime and the game went to penalty kicks, where Torrey Pines won the shoot-out and claimed the championship title.

CCA Coach Tom Lockhart had this to say about the game: “This program has come a long way in its brief six years.  Through dedication, discipline and hard work, the CCA boys have earned the respect of high schools throughout San Diego.  It was a tough way to lose, but this experience will prove vital when we play in the post season.  Tournaments allow a coach to see their strengths and weaknesses; right now the positives far outweigh the areas of concern.”

Although CCA Coach Tom Lockhart and Torrey Pines Coach Andy Hargreaves are rivals on the varsity soccer field, they are on much friendlier terms at the RSF Attack Soccer Club, where they are both on the coaching staff.  Coaches Lockhart and Hargreaves, along with their varsity soccer teams, are to be congratulated for an incredible display of skilled play and outstanding sportsmanship.  They are wished continued success for the upcoming season.
