Fireballs 3, Blackhawks 1: The Blackhawks came on strong despite the wet slippery ball and field conditions. Jonathan Soto’s amazing skills as goalie were shown the entire game with numerous saves. The Fireballs offense was strong, but Jonathan continuously grasped the ball despite the slick conditions. Jonathan’s best effort was a powerful sideways dive that impressed us all. The Blackhawk defense was determined and worked as a well oiled machine. Defenders Bryce Woodson, Kasey Calmell, Jacob Christianson and Carson Merodio played throughout the entire game and never once let up on the pressure.

Kourtney Sweeney was flawless at goalie in the first half making great stops and attacking the ball at the right times. Arisbeth Rangel’s hustle on defense made the difference on many plays against some of the Blue Angels’ best forwards. Allie LaRonge played her first game at forward and had a stand out performance, pushing the ball and passing well and nearly scoring with a powerful strike. And Paulina Bedolla was another offensive force for the Tornados as she ran hard to get in on every play on her side, then moved the ball down the sideline before making smart passes.

U-16 Boys Division

Gunners 5, Elites 0: The Gunners remained undefeated following their hard-fought victory over the Elites.

Richard Palmer tended goal throughout the game, allowing nothing to get past him. Midfielders Daniel McCaleb and Jonathan Hernandez showed a lot of hustle, advancing the ball with speed and finesse. The Elites had a tough time getting through the Gunner defense. Nico Perez was among the Elites who constantly attacked the ball and made a strong effort to score. Pedro Perez-Martinez used his ball control abilities to make smart passes that came close to some scores. Joseph Thompson did a fine job of playing aggressively and stripping the ball from defenders before moving it up the field. And Carlos Reyna was all over the field as defensive sweeper and midfield, getting in on countless defensive stops. Despite the loss, the Elites played well against a high powered Gunner attack.
