TOPS take second in Novato Classic

Submitted By Maria Bell, TOPS PR

UC Premier TOPS, a U-9 girls Division I soccer team, began their summer tournament season by dominating the Novato Classic Tournament and capturing second place over the Aug. 7-8 weekend.

TOPS came out and played disciplined soccer in the opening game, leading to a 4-2 win over the Rincon Valley Dragons. In game two, the TOPS thoroughly controlled the action and efficiently dispatched the host Novato United, 7-1. With the two wins TOPS went into the quarterfinals to take on league rival Livermore Fusion White. The TOPS dominated the action winning, finishing with a 6-1 win.

In the semifinals, the TOPS found themselves facing a determined Mustang Pride team.

After a scoreless first half, the TOPS used some excellent passing to net the game's first goal. From there the defense took over blanketing the Pride, resulting in a 2-0 win.

UC Premier TOPS then went into the championship and met the Livermore Fusion Black. The TOPS netted the game's first goal and led 1-0 at the half. The game turned physical in the second half and the TOPS, who played with only nine players for most of the weekend, succumbed to fatigue, losing 3-1.

The TOPS went through the weekend giving up only seven goals in five games thanks to Annika Kennedy, Logan Bell, Jordan Hong, Kyanna Cruz and Alex Carpio; UC Premier TOPS offensive unit put home 20 goals thanks to Dawson Bell, Natalia Bartolome, Andreea Dan, Jessica McNair and Marwa Nekrawesh.
