Again, we congratulate the Girls 2005 Red on their conquest to win State Cup. Unfortunately the girls fell short but did themselves & the Club proud.....

Congratulations to our G2005 Red team for advancing to Presidents Division State Cup, Semi Finals,  this past weekend.

They are currently the only San Diego team remaining in the Competition.

Saturday, Feb 24th, Ryan Park, Escondido, Rd of 32 saw the girls play Freedom FC (Palm Desert). The game was drawn 0-0 until the 65th min when Garcia headed a cross home from Ruff for the game winner, which sent the team through to the Rd of 16. 

Sunday, Feb 25th, the girls played FC Premier, the team they previously played in their original bracket play, losing 1-0, but the outcome would be different this time as the team won 2-1. The game was tied 1-1 heading into the last 4 mins when Giesting scored the winner in the 66th minute, to send the girls into the Quarter finals.

The afternoon game saw the team up against a very strong Inland Empire Surf Premier , CSL Silver Elite side. A well fought contest between the two teams but with the game deadlocked at the final whistle, sent the game to PK's.  Our girls pulled out the win 7-6 on Penalties.

A great save from Zerr won the game for the team and sent them through to the Semi Finals in Temecula next weekend.

"All the girls played with a lot of heart, commitment  and determination throughout the weekend especially certain players carrying injuries". "I'm very proud of all of them" said Coach Carlson.
