U16 Select takes Championship at the 2015 Harvest Class

U16 Select takes Championship at the 2015 Harvest Class

After falling to a last minute goal in third place consolation game at the Stanford tournament, the team decided to work on 3 things- possession, possession, and possession. 4 weeks passed and the boys entered the Harvest classic, playing their two local rivals- Mustang and San Ramon. The Mustang colts were the exact same team that had beaten them in the last 2 minutes of Stanford Classic, on a single goal. The boys scored two goals in rapid succession, then, after the second half, defeated Mustang 3 to 0. San Ramon was next in the afternoon, and they fell 4-0. The boys had an early 8 am game against the Clovis Crossfire, currently playing Gold level in the CCSL league. The early morning game was rough, and ended in a 1 to 1 tie. After the scores were tabulated, it turned out that they would face Clovis for the championship. Coming back, the boys were fired up, and the opposing coach complained to his team that all the BUSC passing in midfield and defense was confusing them, and that they needed to adjust. They were not able to, as the Select team scored two goals to zero in the first half. After a rocky start, Clovis managed to score a goal, and looked like they might make a comeback. The team’s new co-captain squelched that with a beautiful goal, shaking 2 defenders and the goalie to driven in the 3rd and final point. The team is now planning on their next tournament, as well as finishing strong in State cup, so wish them luck!
