Coach Neil Turnbull and SRU SPARTA U13 Boys just finished an incredible summer of soccer winning 3 tournaments in as many months!
In late July SRU SPARTA attended the San Ramon Azuri Classic as the defending Champions. After a draw in the opening game Sparta kicked into high gear tearing off 3 straight wins including the championship final over Modesto Ajax 4-1. SRU SPARTA averaged of 5+ goals per game and was the top scoring team in the U13 premier division.
Next SRU SPARTA entered the Nike Premier Harvest Cup. They won all 4 games including a 2-1 victory in the hard fought Championship match with RPSC Barcelona. The team yet again led overall scoring in the age group with 13 goals in 4 games.
As the summer tournament season drew to a close SRU SPARTA headed to Davis to play in the Lily Nisen Memorial Shootout, once again as returning Champions. It was our defense this time that won the tournament for us. We faced a Rocklin team in the final that averaged 5 goals per game in qualifying. SRU SPARTA won the Championship 1-0. It was our 3rd clean sheet in 4 games!
SRU SPARTA is also off to a great start in the most important tournament of the year: The Norcal Premier State Cup. The team finished the first round of qualifying undefeated and ranked 7th overall in Northern California. They were the highest scoring team of all the 64 teams in the Red Premier group ... with 7 goals per game!
Well done boys. Well done!
