Del Mar-Carmel Valley Sharks Boys U14 Elite Ashcroft team repeats as champs

The DMCV Sharks Boys U14 Elite Ashcroft team once again took the trophy this past weekend at the 2015 Arsenal FC Winter Classic soccer tournament in the top bracket.

The Sharks were directed by Coach Roy Ashcroft.

The boys had an exciting time defending their title from last year and were undefeated over the entire weekend. It was a challenging tournament, with a final showdown between the top two teams, which had met in the first round.

The Sharks took the lead early and went to halftime up 3-0.

The second half was very physical back-and-forth play, with Hemet Juventus battling to get back into the game. Juventus had several strong opportunities and converting on a free kick. The Sharks held on to close out the game 3-1.

This is the third win in the past year for the boys at the Arsenal tournaments.
