The San Diego Surf Girls Under 8 won the West Coast Futbol Classic Under 8 Division held in San Juan Capistrano during the weekend of Aug. 18-19.  After winning their bracket, the team  — under Coach Steveo Leacock — beat the South Bay Force Blue of Redondo Beach in the championship game 2-1. The team was led by forward Paige Buchner, who scored 7 goals and 4 assists throughout the weekend.

This win follows another championship win at Copa Del Mar Sharks Invitational the weekend of July 28-29. The Surf Girls U8 tied the Nado Select Girl U8 of Coronado in the last few minutes 1-1 of the final game to then clutch the tournament in penalty kicks 2-1.  The Surf Girls Under 8 were also finalists at the Carlsbad Wave Coastal Classic held the weekend of Aug. 11-12.

“Great performance from the girls in the West Coast Classic,” said Coach Leacock.  “Five games in two days in the heat was tough but we pulled through.”

And of the back-to-back wins, Leacock commented, “Playing three tournaments with two championship wins and just one loss during PKs in the finals is a great start for this team. It shows what is to come of them in the future.”
