The non-profit girl’s club's under-10 team won a first place trophy in the tournament, overcoming teams from across California and one from Hawaii. They only allowed one goal in their net over the course of the entire weekend and won their championship match 1-0 against the Fullerton Rangers.
The Surf Cup is an extremely competitive tournament, so participating alone is an accomplishment in itself, not to mention winning. Over 670 teams applied for the 378 positions in the Cup — which touts itself as "the best of the best" in youth soccer — meaning the tournament had to turn away hundreds of teams, including State Cup champions.
The Southern California Blues Soccer Club had a strong presence at the tournament. In addition to the under-10 winners, under-14 Bobak Rennie made it to the quarterfinals, under-13 Otto and under-18 Draluck made it to the semifinals, and under-15 Dodge and under-17 Dodge made it to the finals. Though they lost their respective matches, they also managed to beat some of the best teams in the country along the way.
