Coach Dave Currie’s U8 team, fresh from their first place victory in Oceanside’s So-Cal Cup Soccer Tournament, captured another first place trophy at The Crown City Classic held on Coronado Island the weekend of Aug. 6-7. In the championship game, where Surf defeated the Nomads Chula Vista 6-1, Daniel Karam started a scoring frenzy early in the first half. The second goal was by Wyatt Gardner who received a perfectly placed pass from Brycen Monjazeb. Charlie Kosakoff then added one, followed again by Wyatt Gardner. Ryan Flather was next to drive one in the back of the net and the scoring was finished off by one more from Charlie Kosakoff. The Surf defense played outstanding in every game, as evidenced by allowing only one goal to be scored against them in the entire tournament.
In the preliminary bracket games, all held on fields with beautiful ocean views and cool ocean breezes, Surf defeated the Crusaders Soccer Club 3-0, Coronado’s own Nado 5-0 and the Imperial Valley Jaguars 6-0. As the scores indicate, the Surf boys U8 have been working very hard to develop their skills and teamwork in anticipation of the beginning of their regular league play. Congratulations Surf U8 Boys!
