Sharks Boys U13 White team takes Copa Del Mar title

The DMCV Sharks Boys U13 White team.

The DMCV Sharks Boys U13 White team took the cup at the recent Copa Del Mar tournament in the top F50 bracket. The Sharks were directed by Coach Roy Ashcroft.  Coach challenged the team to play tough and be first to the ball.  The team won their bracket with a record of 2-1-0. Facing the Strikers FC, a tough team from Huntington Beach in the finals, the Sharks opened the scoring when left mid-fielder Brandon Teren spotted an opening and took the ball across the face of the goal through traffic and poked it in during the first 10 minutes of the game.

The Strikers, who won their bracket 3-0-0 with 23 goals for and 2 against, struck back before half time to make it a 1-1 draw. In a tightly contested second half, the Sharks scored on a free kick from the top of the 18 yard box by center mid-fielder Derek Bragado after a Strikers poor tackle. The final 10 minutes played out as the Sharks defense continued to put on a strong showing to stifle the Strikers attempts to come back. This is the second tournament win this summer for the Sharks, who recently won the Escondido Kickin’ it Challenge for breast cancer in Escondido.
