Halloween Fun and Success at October Tournaments

Eclipse teams threw on costumes, fought hard and played well at the October tournaments. Eclipse teams made an impact at tournaments in Davis, Brentwood and Walnut Creek over the October 26-27 weekend. A big congratulations to the U13 Girls who won their first tournament at the Walnut Creek tournament! It’s been fun watching this team progress after winning 1 game during the inaugural season as U11s. The U12 Lunar Boys are in the same boat as focused development over the past three years had them playing in their third consecutive tournament final. The U12 Lunar Girls won their second consecutive tournament (third consecutive final), winning the Walnut Creek Octoberfest for the second year in a row. The U11 Lunar Girls also won the title playing one field over from the U12 Girls in their third consecutive tournament final. It has been very enjoyable watching the teams in these age groups having extremely successful years, as these were the U9-U11 teams in our inaugural year when some of them were happy to even score a goal. Continued focus on developing skills, having fun with teammates and pushing through the tough challenges thrown our way has resulted in very rewarding experiences. Congrats also go out to U11 Lunar Boys who finished in third after winning a dramatic PK shootout that went 12 rounds, as well as the U13 Boys and U15 Girls who each finished fourth in tough flights in Davis. The U9 Boys and U11 Solar Girls each made it to the semifinals in Brentwood.
