SVSC Thanksgiving College Showcase Success!!
South Valley SC had its three high-school-aged girls’ team accepted into college showcase tournaments in San Diego for the Thanksgiving weekend. Two of the three teams came home as tournament winners!
The SVSC G97 team coached by Jeff Darling and by Jason Carter won the top flight of the Nomads Thanksgiving Tournament, tallying an impressive 11 goals scored and only 2 goals against in six matches. Along the way, they defeated CalSouth teams from NHB, FC Man United, and Barcelona USA.
Shelby Klippel’s South Valley G95 team was accepted into the prestigious November Nights College Showcase, a girls-only tournament hosted by the Carlsbad Lightning for the U16 to U18 age-groups. The South Valley G95s won their flight for the second year in a row; and they continue to hold the distinction of being the only team from Bakersfield to have been accepted to compete in November Nights. In their three 2012 matches, our G95s scored 5 goals and only allow 1 goal against. They defeated all of their competitors, which included teams from Santa Clara Sporting, Pride SC (from Colorado), and San Diego SC.
Great job South Valley girls!!!
