Over the weekend of Aug. 18-19, the Surf Boys U9 White team coached by Dave Currie successfully defended their 2011 championship title by placing first in the West Coast Futbol Classic held in Irvine, Calif.  In the championship game, Surf defeated the FC Blades from Irvine with a score of 6-1.  Every player on the Surf team brought their A-game to this exciting hard fought match that was more difficult than the final score indicated.  The first half was a scoreless battle until the first Surf goal was scored late in the first half by Elijah “Coco” Hernandez.  After “Coco” received a well-placed throw-in by defender Nicholas Carlo, he dribbled around the defenders and took the shot.  The first half ended with a score of 1-0.  In the second half, Daniel Karam continued the scoring by blasting a free kick into the back of the net.  Coco Hernandez then added another one to give a score of 3-0.  The fourth goal was scored by Carson Malinowski off a cross by Charlie Kosakoff.  Charlie then got on the scoreboard himself after a great cross by Ryan Flather.  Immediately after the fifth Surf goal, the FC Blades snuck one in to give a score of 5-1.  The final goal was scored by Charlie Kosakoff to end the game at 6-1.

In the preliminary rounds, surf had beaten the hosting West Coast FC with a score of 3-2, tied the Players Soccer Club from Las Vegas 5-5 and topped the South Bay Force 3-2 to win Bracket A.  The FC Blades had won Bracket B before they faced Surf in the Championship game.  The Surf boys finished strong on a very hot August weekend.

Congratulations Surf Boys U9!
