South Bay AYSO and Matrix teams and families participated in the recent Shakey’s fundraiser at the Chula Vista Mall. Special thanks go out to coordinator Luisa Dasis. The players from the U15G team and U11G Gonzalez team came in their jerseys and spirit wear. Many hit a jackpot of yellow game tickets to redeem for prizes. Our younger recreational players from U8 divisions also had a great time. Check out the slide show below.

The South Bay Matrix U14G team coached by Hector Ordonez won the KICKIN’ IT CHALLENGE tournament during the weekend of June 23-24. In Silver bracket play, the girls won 4-0 vs. Poway Vaqueros (Domingo), 3-0 vs. Poway Vaqueros (Argueta) and tied 1-1 vs. FC Heat. In the Championship match, the South Bay girls won 1-0 vs. FC Heat. The team gave up only one goal in the tournament, and looks to continue making progress as the squad enters AAA in the Fall 2012 Presidio Season. The Kickin’ It Challenge raises funds and encourages teams to “Unite in the Fight” against Breast Cancer. Congratulations to the U14G team, and for supporting a good cause!
Another South Bay Matrix FC Team Wins a Beach Soccer Championship
The South Bay Matrix FC U10G team coached by Hector Gonzalez won its age group in the Beach Soccer Championships held May 5-6 in Oceanside. South Bay defeated a Surf U10G team 6-2 in the championship match.
South Bay teams have a strong record in beach soccer. In addition to the U10G success, the South Bay U13G team coached by Hector Ordonez made the semi-finals in its age group in the Oceanside tournament, only a week after capturing the Beach Soccer Jam tournament at Fiesta Island.
For the Oceanside tournament, each South Bay team was entered into the highly competitive ‘Sun’ bracket. The South Bay teams trained on the sand in Imperial Beach to prepare for the Oceanside tournament. The girls’ hard work paid off in dominant performances in the Sun brackets’ opening rounds. The U13G team (photo at right) scored an incredible 24 goals in its first three matches, including a convincing 7-2 victory over rival Kodiak. The Ordonez team narrowly lost in the semis, losing 4-3.
The U10G team recorded 16 goals in its first two matches, before smashing Surf in the championship match. For the U10G team (feature photo), it was a second title in three years in this tournament. And defeating a team from Surf, with its cadre of professional coaches and trainers, is another feather in the cap of all-volunteer AYSO, and South Bay soccer specifically. Way to go!
The South Bay Matrix girls are transitioning from U10 and are a dynamic, well conditioned team with an exceptionally skilled coach and support staff. Additionally, the girls have a tradition of strong tournament finishes and always have a positive outlook on good sportsmanship. Since the team formed in 2009 as an AYSO all-star team and now entering its second season as a Matrix team, the girls have captured 3 championships and 1 indoor title as well. The photo was taken this fall 2011 and the coach has since recruited 2 additional players. For information about tryouts for the competitive 2012 season or to practice with the team, contact Coach Hector Gonzalez at (619) 548-6118 or Team Manager Luisa Dasis at (619) 322-1228
The team consists of a highly athletic, competitive and skillful group of players that is transitioning to U15G for the fall 2012 season. This group of girls also has a tradition of strong tournament finishes. Since its initial formation as an AYSO all-star team and now as a seasoned Matrix team, the girls have captured a remarkable 11 championships and one indoor title as well. Highlights include last May’s Cerritos Cup, where the squad took home a victory over a nationally ranked Arsenal team in a match played at Long Beach State University. Most recently, the team was crowned Co-Champions of the Memorial Super Cup.
