MVU makes waves in Bay Area Soccer

00 MVU Girls
The 00 Mission Valley United (MVU) girls put in some fantastic displays of soccer on November 21 in Sacramento, winning all 3 games in their bracket and pulling off a spectacular 4-1 win in the quarterfinals against Pleasanton.
The girls played with confidence and put in some excellent team performances the success was down to a free scoring attack, and a solid defense which conceded one goal in four games, and scored 15 goals over the weekend.
Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, 00 MVU girls traveled to Manteca to play the hosts in a well fought game, taking it to overtime before losing 1-0 in the State Cup semifinals.
99 MVU Girls
Another great weekend of soccer for the 99 Girls Black team came on November 15, who excelled in their group, winning all their games scoring a mass of goals and conceding just the one goal.
Players from the team played valiantly throughout all the games, unfortunately they were on the wrong end of a 1-0 defeat in the quarterfinals despite dominating the game. Overall a weekend of success for the girls who will come away from this year's State Cup a stronger team.
00 MVU Boys
Fremont Youth Soccer League's (FYSL) Executive Director Andrew Donnery described his team's performance on Saturday, Nov. 14, at the State Cup as "playing tremendously but run out of steam" in the quarterfinals in Manteca.
The boys dominated in the group stage against some dangerous opposition scoring accumulating many goals for and not many against. This saw them play this year's favorites for the competition in the quarterfinals, where they battled throughout, but sadly ran out of steam and will not advance in the tournament.
00 MVU's boys Black team proved to be another team at the club who has improved dramatically and will take valuable experience away from this year's State Cup.
99 MVU Boys
MVU's 99 boys team played their State Cup over the weekend of November 14, in Manteca. Director of Coaching and the 99 Boys head coach Ricky Clarke explained the boys "walk away with valuable lessons learned."
Having faced some stern competition in their bracket, the boys advanced to the quarterfinals, playing against one of the best teams in the competition. MVU played out of this world and took the game to sudden death PKs and finished on the wrong end of a 8-7 penalty kick score.
