The DMCV Sharks Boys U13 White team took the trophy at the recent Arsenal FC Winter Classic soccer tournament in the top bracket. The Sharks were directed by Coach Roy Ashcroft. The boys had an exciting semi-final that went to penalty kicks and exacted revenge in the final, beating the Roadrunners FC 1 - 0, to avenge their only loss in the tournament. This is the fifth straight tournament win this season. They also won the Escondido Kickin’ it Challenge for breast cancer in Escondido, the Copa Del Mar Tournament, the Rancho Santa Fe Attack Summer Classic Tournament, and the Xolos Winter Festival.
The boys are working hard this year 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 and the title coming down to the final weekend of play. Anyone that would like to help the boys with the fundraising can contact John Garvey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
