Congratulations to the San Bruno Lowen Aftershocks (Girls U11), Finalist (Second Place) in the second annual Santa Clara Sporting Girls Invitational Tournament! This event is reserved for elite Class 1 Girls teams in the U8-U19 age group and the SBL Aftershocks received a coveted invitation to compete.
Competition in Morgan Hill was stiff but the girls came on top of Bracket A and followed up with a win in the semi-finals. They started with a 2-0 win over the Flames United FC on Saturday morning followed up by a 1-0 win over the Burlingame Rays later in the day. Then on Sunday afternoon they came through in a tough game against California Odyssey with a 3-2 win. That win placed them in the semi-finals where they defeated Manteca Futbol United 2-0.
Monday morning's final was a battle with both teams challenging each other and fighting hard for the win. The match culminated with a narrow 1-0 win by the San Juan SC Spirits led by Coach Curtis Holmes. This was the first showing of the SBL Aftershocks and they're hoping for an invitation next year because they plan on bringing home the First Place trophy!
San Bruno Lowen Soccer Club would like to thank Santa Clara Sporting for sponsoring such a great event.
