2013 Tahoe CUFA Champions

The Vacaville United Soccer Club Galaxy U13 Boys competed in South Lake Tahoes CUFA (Come up for Air) soccer tournament June 22-23, 2013.  The Galaxy started things off against the Rocklin Predators.  The Galaxy took control early and defeated the Predators 6-1.  Their second game of the day would come against Ethos Saints from El Dorado.  Both teams went back and forth and were very evenly matched.  The match would end in a 3-3 tie.  The Galaxy would play San Bruno on Sunday in the Semi-finals.  The Galaxy took and early 2-0 lead ultimately winning the game 3-1.  The lone goal allowed was via penalty kick.  The Galaxy would have a rematch against the Ethos Saints in the Championship game.  Both teams battled and had their opportunites, but neither team could break through with a goal during regulation.  The game would go into two 5 minute overtime halfs only to end 0-0 again. The game would have to be decided by shootout.  This of course would go just as the game did, back and forth.  Both teams ended the first round tied 3-3 and would go to sudden death.  Following a missed goal by Ethos thanks to a great save by the Galaxy goalkeeper the Galaxy would score to win the championship.
