Sharks Boys U13 White Team takes Xolos USA Winter Festival

The DMCV Sharks Boys U13 White team took the trophy at the recent Xolos USA Winter Festival soccer tournament in the top bracket. The Sharks were directed by Coach Roy Ashcroft. The bracket was strong, but the defense showed up tough allowing only two single goals in the entire tournament. The final was a replay of their only loss to a strong IUSC Brasil team (0-1). In the final, the boys scored on a team effort in the final two minutes to take the tournament title (1-0). The boys are working hard this year to start fundraising for a trip to England next summer to face EPL Academy teams in scrimmages and practices to continue to develop their soccer skills. They had a strong season (4th) in the San Diego County Development Academy with the top four teams all within 3 points of each other. This is the fourth tournament win this year for the team along with a second place in the Las Vegas Cup to start the year last January. They also won  the Escondido Kickin’ it Challenge for breast cancer in Escondido, the Copa Del Mar Tournament, and the Rancho Santa Fe Attack Summer Classic Tournament. Anyone that would like to help the boys with fundraising can contact John Garvey at jncgarv@earthlink.net
