Girls Soccer: Tops win Play Date competition
Submitted By Cindy Beck
UC Premier Tops Under-10 Division girls soccer team welcomed four talented new players to the team. The Tops had been training together in anticipation for their first Northern California Play Date on April 1 in Clovis, CA. They played as if they had been together for years. The rain had not let up all night, but as morning broke, the fields were ready and the girls had their game faces on.
Their first game was against the South Valley Chivas Academy, which the Tops won 4-1. They were back on the field within an hour to play against California Odyssey Soccer Club (COSC) Girls Red. The Tops played hard and prevailed with a 3-1 win. In their third and final game of the day, the girls came out with tons of energy and excitement. The Tops defeated the Ajax United Premier Team winning 6-0.
Tops played three challenging matches and represented the UC Premier name well. Teamwork was responsible for their victories as Tops scored a total of 13 goals, only giving up two. The outstanding teamwork offensively and defensively of Natalia Bartolome, Alex Carpio, Allison Chang, Samantha Conlon, Kyanna Cruz, Andrea Dan, Anmol Gill, Jordan Hong, Chloe Lujan, Jessica McNair and Minah Yang was impressive.
