The DMCV Sharks BU10 team, coached by John Burson, won the Coronado Holiday Cup held on Dec. 14-15 at Tidelands Park. The boys defeated a tough Carlsbad Lightning team to advance to the finals against host team Nado. During the finals the Sharks scored first but then found themselves down 3-1 with only 10 minutes to play. The team poured on the pressure and with the combination play of Mateo Pacelli and Stefano Brunetto, who together scored 3 quick goals, the Sharks were able to pull off a victory, 4-3! The team now hopes to use this momentum as they prepare for State Cup at the end of January.
