Congratulations to the Santa Clara Elite ’98 Girls Team for taking 2nd place at the 2010 District II Cup Tournament on November 21st in Half Mon Bay. The team successfully won 3 of their 4 games over a very wet weekend of soccer. The Elite Girls Team won their first game 6-1 over the Aptos Tide; followed that up with a 4-0 victory over the Scotts Valley/San Lorenzo Pride Team, then won their third game 3-1 over the Mid-County Surf Team. The three victories set the team-up to play for the Championship against the El Camino Real FL Salinas Avalanche Team. Santa Clara and El Camino played a great championship game, and the Elite Team finished second in the tournament after a tough loss. It was a great showing by Santa Clara Elite.
Congratulations to coaches Ernie DeFrenchi and John Teixeira, and team manager Margaret Strong, all the players and parents!
