Manchester SC GU15 returned from their high school soccer break and picked up where they left off before the break last November, winning the California Spring Cup 2012 edition. The team won its first three games and clinched the title with a game to spare. Game 1 against the rival Sharks team and still rusty from their high school break, the team struggled for consistency and fluidity but persevered and defeated the rival Sharks team 1-0 on a goal by Isabella Bullock. Manchester returned for the second game on Saturday with a vengeance, defeating Intra Ramona 3-0, a team that had not lost a game all last season. Goals from Erin Murphy, Hannah Lewis, and Ana Williams punctuated a comprehensive victory.

On the Sunday, Manchester needed a victory in their first game of the day to seal the tournament championship. In the return leg with the Sharks, goals by Carter Hackett and Nadia Del Medico secured the championship for the Manchester GU15 team.
