The boys U14 Del Mar Carmel Valley Sharks all-star team was crowned champions at the 2012 La Jolla All-Star tournament on Dec. 2, narrowly edging Solana Beach, 1-0.

In a tight Sunday afternoon Final game, Ryan A. put the Sharks ahead with a spectacular header goal in the 50th minute.  Oscar, Evan and Bruno led the offense with crisp passing and hard shots. Ryan P, Bradley, Jakob, Ryan J provided strong midfield support with great energy and skill while Connor and Tyler dazzled with fancy footwork on the outside midfield. Patrick had several spectacular saves as goalie. Last, but not least, Chris S, Chris F, Eli, Eitan and Jason formed the Diamond Defense to shut down the mighty Solana Beach offense that had averaged six goals per game in the prelims.

“I am very proud of the boys”, said Coach Shopes, “They played beautiful soccer in the final and were great examples of the Sharks motto of “Fun, Sportsmanship and Fair Play”. Their parents should be proud of not only their Championship victory but how they got there.” Coach Shopes thanked the Solana Beach team not only for a clean, competitive and action-packed Final game but also in the sportsmanship they exhibited in playing hard and winning a prelim game that allowed the Sharks to make the finals.
