The Del Mar Carmel Valley Sharks Boys BU15 Burson Elite team won the San Diego Premier Classic Soccer tournament this past weekend.

Under new Head Coach John Burson, the boys had a strong showing in their second tournament of the season, taking the championship. Special thanks to boys from other teams who helped fill roster spots because of summer vacation plans of some of the team’s players: Cameron, Weiwei, and Keaton from the BU15 age group, and Brandon, who played goalie from the BU14 age group.

The boys played back-to-back games against TFA Soccer, winning the first game 3-2 and the championship game in the second minute of overtime, with a golden goal to win a second time 3-2 as well. The boys never lost, tying once and winning their three other games.

Go Sharks!
