Congratulations to the Santa Clara Sporting 96 Black Team for closing-out the 2010 Surf Thanksgiving Tournament as Semi-finalists in the U12 Boys Age Group. The team won two of their three bracket games in the beginning of the tournament with a 0-2 loss to United FC, then rebounded with a 3-0 victory over the San Diego Surf Team, and a 2-1 win over the Sereno 99 White Team from Arizona. They finished second in their bracket and played a tough semi-final match against the Patadores from SoCal.  The ’96s fought hard but lost the game 1-3 and continue to develop as players and a squad. Congratulations to the players and coaches.
