The San Clemente United Under-11 girls’ soccer team, which consists of all Laguna Beach residents, did well over the weekend at the season-opening Copa Del Mar Sharks Invitational in San Diego.
The team features girls just entering into club soccer. They practiced two nights a week for the last six months, and advanced to the finals at Copa Del Mar.
SC United was in a very strong bracket, including teams from Conejo Valley, Rancho Santa Fe and San Diego. But the girls made it to the finals in their first club tournament with a great team effort. Coach Roger Castle Jr. said that having the girls from the same community helped.
