Congratulations to the Santa Clara Avalanche Boys U12 Team for winning the 2012 District 2 Cup in the Blue Flight in Milpitas. The team won their first game of the tournament with a convincing 6-0 score over the North Valley YSL Flaming Pheonix team, then beat the Orchard Valley Vipers 1-0 in a very tight game. The Avalanche Team went up against the West Valley Grizzlies 3-0 in their third game and were now three games into the tournament, undefeated, and did not allow any goals into their net. The clean sweep put them first in bracket and the boys were now set-up to play in the Finals against Orchard Valley. This time Santa Clara came-out and soundly defeated the South Bay team with a 3-0 score, and finished the tournament with four shutouts and scored 13 goals in four games. Congratulations to all the players, coaches and families!
