The San Diego Surf Academy Boys U7 won the Surf Thanksgiving Tournament once again. Every year since the Surf Soccer Clubs’ inception in 1980, the BU7 Boys continue the tradition of bringing home the trophy.

The rain came down on the boys while they played on wet fields and a slippery soccer ball during the tournament games, but that didn’t stop the Surf U7 Boys. The Surf boys were on fire this past weekend, scoring a combined total of 20 goals in the four games of the tournament. The Surf Academy Boys defeated Chula Vista Premier in the finals, winning with a final score of 9-4, with 2 goals by Cole Loizu, 2 goals by Max Scordo, and 5 goals by Jacquel Ferguson. This is the second U7 tournament in a row that the boys have gone undefeated.

Coached by Mario Mrakovic, a man with true passion for soccer, the Surf Soccer Boys won the tournament with superior soccer skills, teamwork and sportsmanship.

Goalie Caden Doucette blocked many potential goals and helped the Surf U7 Boys take home the Surf Cup Trophy.

“Surf BU7 teams have won every single year since its start, something no other team has accomplished. Our boys played great today and managed to score 9 goals in the finals, which speaks volumes by itself,” says Mario.

At every age group, Surf Soccer Club teams are playing at the highest levels against the toughest competition, in the most competitive leagues. Next season San Diego Surf is offering a BU6 program for the first time ever.
