eXplosion take 2nd in Vacaville Tournament
Submitted By Larry Thompson
The FC Fremont eXplosion a BU12 Division 3 team played in the Vacaville United Cup Tournament this weekend. After a timid Saturday opening which saw the eXplosion tie the River Plate Cougars (2-2) and lose to the Rocklin Revolution (1-4) the eXplosion adjusted their line up to bring Chris Arce and Trier Mortlock from their forward positions into the mid field. The strengthened mid field proved to work well as the eXplosion dominated the Vacaville United Tornadoes (3-0) winning their flight and earning a trip to the championship game.
The Championship game was a rematch of the eXplosion vs the Rocklin Revolution. The game ended regulation play with a 1-1 tie and was finally decided on a "golden goal" with 2 seconds left in the 2nd overtime period by a Rocklin forward.
Over the weekend, Chris Arce converted a PK and had 2 goals from the field, assist from Rohan Ramakrishnan and Mizan Raham. Also scoring unassisted were Trier Mortlock, Aniket Saoji and Preston Kelbe.
