Eagles BU14 Finalists at NHB
After winning Santa Barbara Summer Cup last week, the Eagles reached the final at NHB this past weekend and continued to make positive strides towards CSL Silver Elite. In the final, they faced a tough opponent in Milan SoCal. Although the team demonstrated their never die attitude, one through ball proved to be the game winner for Milan. The Eagles created enough opportunities but it wasn't meant to be. Coach Alcaraz Cuellar was still pleased with the overall performance and was happy the boys got to experience an NHB final that not many can say they have done. The Eagles finished the tournament 3-1-1 scoring 11 goals 2 against. Go Eagles!

Coach Luis Alcaraz Cuellar praised the play of the defense; Kevin Peña, Joshua Shoop, Spencer Alonge, Rahmie Sharif, Noah Pacifici and GK Beck Wallgard that allowed only two goals all weekend!

The team began group play in Lancaster by beating Eagles CC (4-1) and Riverside (4-0) and losing to last years champions, Interamerica (0-2). The Eagles next opponent in the round of 32 was a CSL 2nd place Silver Elite North, FC Deportivo Panteras. After falling behind 0-1 in the first ten minutes, the team pulled it together to score three goals (Rhylan Thomas) in 15 minutes to finish the half with a 3-1 lead. The second half was a bit sloppy for both teams but the Eagles were able to seal the game with a goal by Andres Lopez.
In the round of 16, the Eagles jumped on the Oxnard Wave 3-1 at halftime, unfortunately as wind became a factor in the game, the Wave were able to tie the game and send it to overtime. With a scoreless overtime, the game was sent to PKs. It took the 13th player from the Wave to score the final goal and make it a final 11-10. It was a nail biter to say the least. The team is disappointed with the end result, however this result and the experienced gained, will only make this team better. Congratulations to the Eagles BU12 on their great State Cup performance.
