The Surf Girls U-10 white team, led by Coach Gabe Arredondo, won first place at the prestigious Surf Cup Tournament the weekend of Aug 4-6.  The Surf team dominated opening round play outscoring their opponents 14-1.  In the semifinal game they faced a very tough Legends team.  The Surf team managed to take control of the game early and took a 2-0 lead 10 minutes into the game with goals from Dorrian Savage and Daniela Chavira.

In the second half it was Surfs constant pressure that set the tone, keeping ball position and establishing great rhythm.  The aggressiveness of their opponent did not slow down the surf team managing to put a third goal in the net sealing the victory and sending them to the finals to face a great Eagle team.

In the championship match, Surf struck first at the 3-minute mark with a goal from Allyza Eckhardt.  Eagles equalized the score at 1 on a corner kick.  The game was full of intensity, skill and great decision making by both teams.  The first half ended with the score tied at 1.  In the second half, Surf took the initiative once again showing why this team not only has great footwork and magic , but will and drive.  Lexi Wright of a shot, took the keepers reflection and put the ball in the back of the net for a 2-1 Surf lead.  Eagles did not give up and looked for another set piece of a corner kick to even out the score. The game ended with several opportunities from the surf side but none went in.  Overtime was in place.  Surf came out strong establishing a constant barrage of pressure on the Eagles defense.  The tenacity and heart that Surf showed in overtime was second to none out shooting their opponents 10-0. Luckily for the Eagle team none went in.  The crossbar the posts and goalkeeper were likely heroes here.  Both teams headed to penalty kicks.  Surf Keeper Isabella Grust came up huge stopping 2 of the 4 Eagles shots and proclaiming Surf as the Champions.
