SOH Varsity Has a Matrix Flavor, Reaches Tourney Finals

A shout out to South Bay AYSO Commissioner Marco Beltran, who also coaches the Southwest High Girls Varsity team. SOH is loaded with South Bay Matrix/South Bay AYSO players. The squad reached the finals of the Barons Tournament, losing a heartbreaker to Our Lady of Peace 3-2 after the fourth OT and with just seconds to go until a penalty shootout. The team captains for Coach SOH-AYSO finalistsMarco’s squad include Kimberly Avalos, left in photo, who played U19G South Bay recreational, and Juliana Campos, right, who played on the U19G SB Matrix team this fall. So much for the theory that you have to play on a high-priced club soccer team to make a high school team, much less captain the squad. SOH upended El Capitan High in the semis, and came back from two goals down in the final to send the match to overtime. OLP notched the game-winner on a corner kick right before time expired. The semis and final were played on December 14.

This year’s Southwest High team had an infusion of talented freshmen from the U15G Matrix team coached by Hector Ordonez.

Look for future updates about South Bay Matrix players who are now starring on Varsity squads across the South County, from Mar Vista High in Imperial Beach to Otay Ranch and Olympian high schools in eastern Chula Vista. Mar Vista High in particular boasts a high number of Matrix U19G players (Coach Santiago Villanueva).

South Bay Night at SDSU

Players and coaches from South Bay Matrix/South Bay AYSO filled a whole section of the stands at the recent SDSU Men’s Soccer match vs. Grand Canyon University. After the match, South Bay coaches were able to visit the team room to review match strategy, key points and tactics with SDSU Asst. Coach Matt Hall. The Coaching Education session was arranged by new Director of Coaching Memo Medina, a former SDSU Asst. Coach himself. The Aztecs handily defeated Grand Canyon 4-0. Coach Hall was gracious with his time, and we are all proud of the turnout by our South Bay families. It was a great evening for all.

Matrix South Bay: Video Shows Our Club is On The Rise

We are often asked, ‘What is Matrix?’ Well, we could tell you. For example, we could note that: “Matrix is designed to provide a more challenging level of play for those players who possess the appropriate interest, skills and abilities and to enhance each player’s experience and individual growth through the game of soccer while retaining the spirit and organization of AYSO.”

But we thought it would be much more fun to show you. So please take a moment to view the following video clip by simply clicking here or cutting and pasting this link into your web browser:U10 Sanchez2

Huge Turnout at Parks and Rec Soccer Expo

The prospect of a free t-shirt, soccer ball and a hamburger only added to the experience of soccer enthusiasts, as the city of San Diego Parks and Recreation Department hosted a Soccer Expo on Saturday, May 11 with the help of South Bay AYSO/South Bay Matrix. It was quite a day of activities as the soccer skills clinic attracted well over 100 participants. The recreation center also hosted a community yard sale, and South Bay Matrix teams held an inaugural Jog-a-thon at the park. That made for a jam-packed, fun-filled morning. South Bay AYSO’s U5 Jamboree division showed up in force.

Special thanks go out to Luisa Dasis for coordinating the Matrix Jog-a-thon and our concession booths. Volunteer coaches from Matrix for the skills clinic included Diego Terry, Hector Romo, Rogelio Lopez, Santiago Villanueva, Polo Aviles, and several Matrix high school-age players who dedicated their community service hours to helping the younger players.

Thank you to all our participants and volunteers.
