U13 Academy at the Development Academy Winter Showcase
This weekend your Breakers FC USL 2 side looked to put the first three games in the past and they did exactly that. With two more games this weekend they went undefeated , collecting four very valuable points. With an influx of players added to the team this week the squad was looking much deeper and stronger after a rough start to the season. Friday night the Breakers traveled to San Francisco to take on the SF Glens and on Sunday they hosted the San Diego Zest for an early afternoon kick off. Searching for their first points of the season it was a big weekend for the team.
Friday night the stage was set at historic Boxer Stadium in San Francisco as both the Glens and Breakers looked for their first wins of the 2019 season. After falling behind in the first half the Breakers fought back to earn a well deserved point on the road against a strong Glens side. Sunday’s home match was played at a different venue than normal , Aptos High School , as our 2019 home venue Santa Cruz High School was not available. However this did not phase the team, as they picked up their first win of the season with a dominant performance. Once again though your Breakers fell behind to an early goal against the run of play. Trailing by one at the half it was not an uncommon occurrence for your Breakers to come from behind and that they did. Three second half goals , two of which were from Man of the Match Walmer Martinez , were enough to see them earn their first win of the season.
This upcoming weekend your Breakers play host both Friday night and Sunday afternoon as the welcome FC Golden State Friday and Orange County Sunday. See you there!
Friday vs FC Golden State : 7:00pm at Santa Cruz High School
