SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK:
Congratulations to SHARKS B2008 for winning their game this weekend vs Simi Premier White (5-2). Even though the Sharks still have 3 more games to play before the end of the season, their win this weekend put them 8 pts ahead of the 3rd place team who only has 2 games to play. This means Sharks are guaranteed to finish in the top 2 spots in their bracket and will move up to SILVER next year! Congratulations to Nick, Zack, Owen G, Dany, Liam, Jakob, David, Owen Y, Kai, Luke, Josh T, Raemon, Christian and Josh G. Sharks began the season with only 3 returning players from last year. Congratulations to Coach Josue and Coach Edgar for getting the boys to play together as a team so quickly! On Sunday, Sharks won both of their games for League Cup (5-1 and 2-1) and will move up to the second round on November 11th. What a weekend for the Sharks!
VENOM B2003 Silver Elite beat Santa Paula (4-0) this weekend. The boys played hard! The win moved the boys from 12th to 9th place. With one more game to go, Venom only needs one point against LA Premier Downtown to save their position in Silver Elite. Venom has had some tough challenges this season, especially overcoming the loss of 4 key players to a Gold team. Way to go, boys for working hard and not giving up!
PRIDE G2003 Silver Elite tied on Saturday (0-0) vs. North Valley. Pride played two League Cup games on Sunday (7-0 and 1-1) and will go to the next round. Great job, Pride!

It is a tight race in the Bronze Beta bracket as only one point separates the top 6 teams.
KNIGHTS B2009 (2nd) Knights had another great weekend. They played FC United and pulled off another win (4-0). They dominated the game, they passed well, and kept the pressure on.
