July 2, 2013

The Santa Clara Sporting 97G Green Team won the U15 Girls Premier Group at the US Club National Cup Regional in Davis, CA., and head to Aurora, Colorado to compete in the National Cup held July 18-21 in Aurora Park, Colorado. This is the second time the Sporting 97G Green Team will compete in the US Club Soccer Nationals, and during their last trip in 2011 they came home as National Champions

Santa Clara went undefeated throughout the tournament and scored 10 goals while keeping a clean-sheet not allowing any goals into their net. They kicked-off the tournament with a convincing 4-0 win over the THUSC Xenon team, won their second game 2-0 over the Velocity Team, and beat the Cal Cougars 98 team 2-0 playing in some extreme heat out in Davis. After sweeping bracket play, they earned a spot in the Finals where they defeated the Sacramento United 98 team with another 2-0 score.

The team is preparing to compete at the National Cup and we wish all the players, coaches and parents Good Luck! Go Sporting!
