Fresh from their success being crowned Champions of the Mesa All Star tournament in mid-December, last weekend the DMCV Sharks Girls U12 All-Star team played in the New Year Kick Off  tournament in Escondido. From a total of eight teams, Sharks ended up by winning the Championship. In the early rounds they defeated strong teams from the Oceanside Breakers (3-1) and Carlsbad Wave (2-1) and tied with Encinitas Express (0-0) to qualify for the Final.

In the Final, they played the host team, Escondido Soccer Club.  Fortunately in the Final, Sharks continued their record of scoring early goals and within nine minutes they were leading 2-0. Escondido came back hard and threw everything at the Sharks defense, but the team defended well and hung on for a 2-0 victory. This win was especially impressive because the team was lacking several key players, including their regular goalie. Amazingly, the stand-in goalie, Devin Jansen, conceded only two goals in the whole tournament. Every single player committed all-out effort to win the games and the team fought like tigers! The spirit of the team was typified by Dani Anapoell, who played the last part of the Final game despite having a broken toe. Many congratulations to Sharks Girls U12 Gold All Star team for winning their second tournament of the season!
