Four South Bay Matrix FC soccer teams reached the finals of the Memorial Weekend Super Cup Tournament, and all four won championships.
South Bay’s Boys 2002, Girls 2002, Boys 2004 and Girls 2004 teams each won their respective brackets in impressive fashion. “To go four for four is amazing, and really shows the quality of our program,” said Anthony Millican, South Bay’s Executive Director.
A fifth South Bay team, Boys 2005, reached the semi-finals and lost in kicks from the mark (PKs). The sixth South Bay team entered in the tournament, Boys 2007, made a quality showing in its first competitive club soccer tournament.
“We’re really proud of all the teams,” Millican said.
The Girls 2002 team played up in age in the G2001 division. The South Bay girls won the final 3-0 vs. Tactical FC of Las Vegas. The Boys 2002 team won its final 2-1 vs. a CVFC team. The Boys 2004 team won its final 4-1 vs. Hotspurs Academy. And the Girls 2004 team won its final with a similar 4-1 score vs. Matrix Santee.
“We have something special growing here in South Bay,” Coach Santiago Villanueva said. “Our grassroots efforts will only continue to grow and attract more people as we develop players the proper way. I am glad to be part of this special movement.”
The tournament marked the transition to South Bay Matrix Football Club’s new branding and new color scheme logo. The previous burgundy color scheme will continue to form part of our AYSO Region 712 programs. South Bay Matrix is the competitive soccer arm of South Bay AYSO, which is based in the Imperial Beach, South San Diego and San Ysidro communities. The new Blue and Teal colors are similar to partner club, Pacific Soccer Club, which is the AYSO competitive soccer program in Orange and LA counties. The words “South Bay” are across the chest, front and center of the new uniforms.
“In selecting a new color scheme and rebranding, we wanted the primary focus to be on South Bay,” said Director of Coaching Polo Aviles. “We really wanted to embrace our community orientation and make it a focal point. That has always been our strength. We wanted to give our competitive club members and fans something that readily identifies the club as South Bay’s.”
Established in 2003, South Bay Matrix FC has consistently crowned Presidio League Champions, starting in its first season of competitive soccer participation. Since the early beginning, South Bay has been a club to be reckoned with and has consistently won competitive/club soccer championships year in and year out whether in the Presidio League to San Diego Developmental Academy (SDDA), and now even in Coast Soccer League. Its teams have reached the CalSouth State Cup President Division Finals. South Bay teams annually compete and succeed in several high level showcase tournaments. South Bay’s G2002 is also currently participating in the National Premier League (NPL), which is an invitation only prestige travel league.
