The DMCV Sharks Boys U12 All-Star team won the Scripps Ranch All-Stars tournament this past weekend completing a clean sweep of the All-Stars Triple-Crown tournaments in La Jolla, Mesa, and Scripps Ranch. The Sharks team was rock solid in the Scripps tournament scoring 14 goals while only giving up two. Collectively, over the three tournaments, the powerhouse Sharks team scored an amazing 74 goals while only giving up seven, throughout the equivalent of 13 full games, with 12 different players scoring.
Coach Rick Sanborn stated, “What set these boys apart from their competitors was their unselfish play; they could all score, and almost all of them did. Every player on the team became an expert in their role, knew what they we supposed to do, and executed. In my years of having the privilege of coaching an all-star team, I’ve never seen a group of 10, 11, and 12 year-olds play together at such a high level…it was magical. This team exemplified the Vince Lombardi mantra of ‘Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work.’”
