South Valley Success at Nomads Thanksgiving Tournament . . .
Numerous South Valley SC teams competed in the 2013 Nomads Thanksgiving Tournament, notching two semi-finalists and one champion! This was a great showing for our teams and only the second time in Nomads Thanksgiving Tournament history that a girls’ team from Bakersfield won a top-flight championship.
Coach Jason Carter’s G98 team went the distance, going undefeated in six matches, scoring nine goals and only allowing two goals. They won the U15 girls’ top flight, defeating teams from southern CA and from Utah.
South Valley also had three other teams with excellent tournament showings. G00 Chambers was a quarterfinalist, losing in PKs late Saturday night. Coach Jason Carter’s G97 team and Coach Shelby Klippel’s G95 team were both semi-finalists, with the G95s losing in PKs. Overall, a lot of great South Valley soccer was played and enjoyed in the beautiful San Diego weather!
