Tops seeded #10 in State Cup
Submitted By Cindy Beck
The Union City Premier TOPS, a U-10 girls Division I soccer team, began playing the Preliminary rounds for the State Cup in August. State Cup competition showcases the top 48 Premier Girls U-10 Teams of Northern California. TOPS played their first game against Mustang Crunch which ended in a tie 1-1. The next game was against the #6 ranked Girls U-10 Team in Nor Cal, Davis Legacy, which the Tops defeated 2-0. TOPS went on to capture the last win against Mill Valley 3-0 and advanced them to the second round of the State Cup. This placed them in the top 24 of the Premier Girls U-10 teams of Northern California. A remarkable accomplishment and exciting time for the UC Premier Tops!
They will be playing the second round of the State Cup November 5 and 6 in Sacramento, CA. The TOPS played as a team and showed their soccer skills throughout each game. Thanks to the excellent defense of Logan Bell, Kyanna Cruz, Jordan Hong, Anmol Gill, and Alex Carpio, they only gave up one goal in all three games and defended the ball flawlessly. The offensive power of Natalia Bartolome, Jasmine Barbosa, Dawson Bell, Andrea Dan, and Jessica McNair showcased excellent soccer skills and drove in six goals in the preliminary rounds for the State Cup. TOPS teamwork and passion for soccer has been the result of efforts by Coach Rob Hernandez and Assistant Coach Lindsey Hamilton.
Good luck to the Tops as they compete in the second round of the State Cup!
