In the biggest summer tournament victory in our club program’s history, South Bay AYSO’s Under-13 Girls Matrix team won the Las Vegas Labor Day Classic by defeating the reigning Nevada State champions in the final 4-3. The South Bay girls stormed through bracket play to set up the championship showdown with FC Warriors (Las Vegas), which is ranked #21 in the Southwestern U.S. by GotSoccer. Coach Polo Aviles’ South Bay squad, known as Matrix Elite, has a high flying attack. Including the final, the girls scored 18 goals in four matches. The girls appear to be peaking at the right time, fresh off consecutive victories in the recent San Diego Development Academy (SDDA) College Showcase. The team starts play on Sept. 6 in the SDDA’s Flight 2, as Matrix South Bay U13G Red. By any name, these girls are playing really well!
