A local club soccer team won the prestigious Cal South State Cup tournament over the weekend. It’s the first such title for the club, the coach said.
The girls 2007 team from Fútbol Foundation Santa Clarita outscored its opponents 31-5 in eight games to capture the Governors Division. Sixty teams started the tournament, and FFSC was left standing after beating the Apple Valley Soccer Club Storm 3-2.
Kayla Lugo led all team members in goals, and goalie Sierra Cordola amassed five shutouts and even scored a goal in the final.
Other top players include twins Gianna and Bella Costello. Gianna assisted on Bella Bruno’s goal in the final, and Bella Costello helped anchor the defense. Ava Magana scored the first goal in the final.
At this age, the teams field only nine players at a side and play on smaller fields. Coach Adam Waddell said FFSC will move up to 11-on-11.
