The Santa Clara Sporting 01B Black team won the 2012-13 Cal North State Cup Championship! The team got off to a slow start, losing its opening game 1-2 against a tough River City Elite team. The boys got the wakeup call, and set out to do everything possible to qualify for the championship game. In game 2, the team defeated the SC Breakers Blue, 7-0, then, defeated the Visalia Galaxy, 5-0, and ended the weekend with a 3-1 win over the Los Gatos Panthers. The final was a re-match of game 4, with Sporting taking on the Los Gatos Panthers. Sporting went on to win 7-0. On the way to the State Cup, the boys demonstrated excellent offensive depth – 11 different players accounted for the 23 goals the team scored during the tournament. Congratulations to the players and parents on a successful State Cup tournament. Congratulations to all the players, coaches and parents!
