Defending U10 boys 2011 Spring Champions, Screaming Eagles, welcomed the Red Bulls Saturday, October 8th as the Eagles looked to continue their perfect season thus far. It was a hard fought match which ended with the Eagles coming out on top 2-0 as they improved to 5-0 for the season. Forward and team Captain Jorge Mercado managed to put two in the net as the Red Bulls goal keeper was fearless during the match and stopped numerous attempts at goal by the Eagles offense.
Both goals from Mercado came in the first half as the Red Bulls defense tightened their line and prevented the Eagles from further damage. Not to be outdone, the Red Bulls managed to get passed the Eagles defense on several occasions, only to be met by goalkeeper Garrett Takei who stopped everything that came his way. Takei continues to impress his coaching staff, fans and opposing teams with his great abilities and fearless dives for the ball. In 5 games, Takei has yet to allow a single ball to reach the net while guarding his goal.
The Screaming Eagles are on pace and its players, coaching staff and supporters are determined to finish the season 10-0 and be crowned back-to-back champions.
