Newark Sportivo, an under-9 boy's competitive team defeated the Los Gatos United in the final of the annual Diablo FC Halloween Tournament followed by a 4-1 win over the Danville Mustangs. In the semi-final, Sportivo faced a tough home squad (Diablo FC). Tied at half time 2-2, Sportivo came out like true champions and scored five more goals to defeat Diablo 7-3. Despite playing in a higher-level tournament, Newark Sportivo SC endured, and were crowned champions. Coach Rob Fernandez commented, "It was a total team effort, and these boys deserve a lot of credit."
Way to go Newark Sportivo!
