Morgan Hill, CA (May 18, 2014)

Union City Premier United U16 Boys captured their second tournament title for 2014 winning the San Jose College Showcase in the Premier bracket.  United entered the tournament ranked 38 in northern California. In their first match they faced the Azzuri team from San Ramon.  The Azurri side scored first in the first half and began the second half with the lead.  United scored a quick second half goal to even the match at 1 in the first 5 minutes.  United then took the lead with a second goal with 10 minutes to go securing the match and their first win of the tournament.  In the second match United face San Jose Fuerza where they cruised to a 2-0 lead at the half and finished the match 4-1.  On Sunday United faced a higher ranked Foothill Storm SC team from southern California.  The match began evenly matched as both sides had several chances but could not capitalize on any of the attempts.  United scored two goals before the half and gave up a goal as the second half began.  Being up 2-1 in the second half united added a third forward and created two additional goals to once again finish the match 4-1 and earning a spot in the final.  United would meet PAC San Jose Newells a rival you could say given they have both played against each other the past three seasons where United has a 2-1 record against them.  The match was very physical both sides playing hard to gain positioning on the ball.  PAC got on the score board first and led entering the second half.  In the second half Fabian Ruiz-Mejia took a free kick about 30 yards from the corner of the 18 yard box.  The kick sored over the wall and over the keeps head where the ball hit the cross bar but went in.  The United fans erupted with joy and suddenly the momentum shifted to united favor.  United would then go on to score their second goal from a shot from Josh Rojas taken from the United half of the field.  The PAC keeper miss judged the ball as it bounced in front of the keeper and went over his head and into the goal.  Eight minutes later the whistle blew and United won their fourth match of the weekend giving up 4 goals and scoring 12.  With this win United now sits 31 in the Gotsoccer rankings in Northern California.

Congratulations to a united team that is on fire.  Members of United are: Cesar Virrueta, Mario Rodriguez, Hasseb Babacarkhial, Javier Vega, Samuel Wu, Austin Dalmasso, Geovanni Macias, Zaihem Fazel, Javid Jardon, Raul Kasar, David Barajas, Josh Rojas, Jonathan Cervera, Luis Ponce, Sergio Vasquez, Fabian Ruiz-Mejia, and Chris Amaya.

FUSION Finalist in North vs South Summer Classic

San Luis Obispo , CA (August 11-12, 2012) UC Premier FUSION U13 Girls had an impressive weekend down in San Luis Obispo where going into the finals Fusion had only allowed one goal. Fusion began the tournament with a 2-0 win over Cal Odyssey south G99. In their second match Fusion was to take on the Eagles blue from the Eagles Soccer Club in southern California. Fusion went up 1-0 in the first 10 minutes of the match but quickly found themselves tied at 1-1 after an equalizing goal from the Eagles Blue side. In the second half Fusion made an offensive adjustment that paid off with two second half goals resulting in a 3-1 win. In the third qualifying match Fusion faced the second Cal Odyssey 99GR team (this time the one from the North) where the girls brought their arsenal and landed 3 goals by half time and added 3 more in the second half. The 6-0 win was Fusion most impressive win of the tournament. The stage was then set for the showdown between Fusion and the North Huntington Beach (NHB) Back side who at this point has scored 16 goals and not allowed one. From the blow of the whistle the pressure was on Fusion as they could not connect with each other and find their rhythm. Going into halftime Fusion was down 2-0. The girls turned up their own pressure and started to control the match a bit better in the second half. Their efforts lead to several scoring opportunities that hit off the posts and a missed penalty kick. Fusion played a hard second half but the damage had been done and had to settle as finalist. We are proud of their efforts and performance this past weekend. Way to play hard Fusion!! Fusion would like to extend a special thank you to Yvette Sandoval and Kelly and YuYu Zarate for traveling & playing with the team this weekend.
