All-Star Saturday was a great day of soccer at Mountain House High School. Fans enjoyed watching the future of WCS on display with U6/U8 players getting their first opportunity to play on the High School field. It was memorable for both the players as well as the parents.
West Coast started the day off with a bang, U10 game between coach Jerry (Team: Mexico), versus coaches Erik and Shazia (Team: England) ended in a tie after an exciting round of shootouts.
The U13 division was between coaches Seth and Deepesh (Team: Netherlands) versus Coaches Victor and Thapa (Team: Germany). This was a defensive battle… back and forth they went until the very end!
With Team Netherland coming out victorious 2-0, goals made by Allen and Noni.
The day ended with a great game in the Academy division which was a battle of heavyweights Coached by Pete and Tony (Team: USA) versus coaches Saif and Juan (Team: France). There were several goals scored by Matthew, Samantha (aka Adidas), Omar, and Humza for Team USA. While France was led by goals from Jayden and Zoheb. Team USA won the gold!
Overall, it was a great and exciting day of soccer.
Player quote (Ian):
"I really enjoyed the soccer season; I had a lot of fun. I loved the Saturday games and the snacks. I got to play with some old friends, and I also made new friends. It was so much fun. I scored some really good goals and got to play as a defense and offence, but I liked offence more. Coach Erik was very nice, he helped me train and get better with my soccer skills, he was also very kind. I'll be signing up for the spring season 2023, can't wait."
From Mom and Dad:
“Thank you coaches for the kind, nourishing and gentle approach with the kids. We really appreciate all your efforts; you really made it a great experience for everyone. Special thanks to coach Erik for all the care and great communication and updates. The SMS group was a great touch, it helped us recall the game times and jersey colors. The extra practice was awesome, they got to practice extra. Everything was perfect, please don't change a thing next season, it was just great. You've helped us keep some great memories.”
