Tri Valley U12 Boys Barca
Norcal Cup DD III 2014 Champions!
The U12 Tri Valley SC Barcelona team captured the Norcal Cup DD III in a hard fought match against the Livermore Fusion yesterday in Modesto. It is the second Norcal Cup Championship for the Tri Valley Soccer Club!
The Barca Boys took an early lead off a corner that eluded the Livermore goalkeeper and was rocketed into the roof of the far post by the opportunistic Nick Van der Waart who came from the central defense position to find the back of the net!
Livermore pulled even at 1-1 in the middle of the first half with a very well placed goal at the far post, just beating Barca goalkeeper Matthew Muaddi. It was the only goal that the Barca defense would relinquish in this highly competitive match.
Barca regained the lead late in the first half on a spectacular run by Tarun Karumanchi, beating several defenders and drawing a heavy tackle in the box resulting in a penalty kick being awarded. Nick Van der Waart calmly placed the spot kick low to the goalkeeper’s right and the victory was secured!
Defensively, Barca was led by Nick Van der Waart, Tarun Karumanchi, Grant Hagan, Ethan McCuen, and Lukas Bevilacqua!
In the midfield, the Barca Boys were equally effective and dominated play on both sides of the ball. The midfield and outside backs played a pivotal role in the transitions of the game. Special mention to midfielders Max Rector, Ryan Herrington, Adam Malek, Andrew Senna, Tyler Nguyen
In the attack, the Barca Boy’s created numerous chances to goal, with exceptional play from Brennan Dury, Oscar Alenda, Tristan McMahon and Noah Kuhn. Much credit to the Barca attackers for constantly exposing the Livermore defense with well placed runs, great combination play, beating defenders on the dribble and pressuring the Livermore goalkeeper throughout the match.
In 2013, the Barca team, led by Coach Todd Higley, continued to develop at an impressive rate. Like any team, the Barca team had their challenges in both league and cup play. But to their credit and Coach Todd, they stayed focused and on their mission, reaching the pinnacle of their goals! Coach Higley has been to the State Cup Final on four occasions, this was his first victory! Congrats Todd, for a job very well done!
A special thanks to Team Manager Robin Alenda and Team Treasurer Susan Hayes for all their assistance in the management of this team. Our thanks as well to the TVSC junior players, who trained with the Barca for the past couple of months assisting Coach Todd in the preparation of Baca for the Norcal Cup.
To the Barca Boys and their families, congratulations! It was a fantastic achievement and we look forward to many more successes in the future with this very special group of players.
