STORM G01 traveled to Redwood City December 13&14 and were awarded Runner -Up Silver Finalists at the 7th Annual Juventus Coppa d’Oro. STORM finished second overall after topping Bracket A among eight teams from Northern California.
STORM battled to a 1-1 draw with East Valley FC Black in a very evenly contested match at Hillview Middle School in Palo Alto. STORM rallied to beat Lowen FC Monsoon in an evening match at Gunn HS, controlling play from start to finish, in a convincing 4-0 finish. In their third match, STORM battled a very physical Mustang Explosion team, the game was back and forth, but could only manage a 1-1 draw. In the tournament final, STORM had some really great chances, but ended up conceding a very good goal to San Carlos United Blitz losing 1-0 in the final.
STORM finished the tournament with a record of 1-1-2, with six goals scored and three allowed. It was STORM G01’s first Silver competition since coming off and undefeated Coast Soccer League U13 Bronze Championship, 12-0-2 in November.
