The CV Girls under 13 team won the Citrus Classic Soccer Tournament on May 14 and May 15, making the victory the fourth in a row.
Held at the AB Brown Sports Complex in Riverside, the girls’ first obstacle was OSC United Warriors.
The team got off to a 1-0 start in the first half with a goal by Izzy Costilla off of a corner kick by Rachel Bird. Riley Benjamin and Annie Winton helped the offense and defense with CV taking the win 1-0.
The next challenge was the Westside Breakers. CV again got the first goal by Costilla off a pass from Sophia Bonanni followed by CV scoring in the second to 2-0 with Amanda Burch making a goal from a cross from McKenna Sandoval. The Breakers then surged, starting with a PK and followed by another goal ending with a final score 2-2.
Sunday morning brought clouds and rain but that didn’t slow GU13 girls. They defeated the Celtics by a score of 2 to 0. Strong plays were made by Andrea Gutierrez, Dylan Harrow, Heather Turcios and Kayci Jatico along with Sandoval and MianneKim Zuiderveen. Bird and Burch scored the goals. Goalie Clare Shapiro held off most of the other team’s attack on the goal.
Although CV won the game and their pool, they lost Burch to an injured left ankle.
The final game against the Riverside Rage was dominated by the CV girls who spent most of the half in possession of the ball on the offensive. Goals by Costilla, Sarah Patrick and two from Harrow secured the lead for CV with some solid saves by Shapiro bringing the final score 4-1.
