Jaws 01 and Sharks 01 at Almaden Halloween Classic

Two Santa Cruz City YSC competitive teams reached their finals at the Almaden Halloween Classic tournament.

U-12 Girls team Jaws O1 Blue traveled to Morgan Hill for the Almaden Halloween Classic.  Playing in the top U12 bracket and dressed as Wonder Woman/Women they first faced the Hollister Tremors Lightening who in league play had beat them 1-0 two times and lost a close game 2-1.  They went on to win their next games 1-0 and 2-0 and battled back to face Hollister in the Championship Finals.  Jaws scored first off the left foot of Hannah Robinson but with 7 minutes left in the game Hollister equalized the score.  No scores through two 5 minute overtimes and the teams went to Penalty Kicks with Hollister coming out victorious.

U-12 Boys team Sharks 01 won the silver division finals after beating Almaden FC Mercury 4-3.
