U-12 Slammers runner-up

The U-12 Slammers Maroon team finished runner-up in the prestigious Slammers Summer Classic tournament last weekend.

The entire team is comprised of former Corona del Mar AYSO All-Stars that have just recently moved over to the Slammers Club soccer team. This was their second club soccer tournament.

The boys played outstanding defense over the four games played. They allowed only five shots on goal and only two goals scored.

In the championship game they were forced to play with no substitutes and narrowly lost 1-0 to a team from Anaheim.

Zack Karro and Niko Urban each had two goals on the weekend to lead the scoring.

Max Dunk, Josh Means, Cam Kayl and Alec Gekchyan helped control the offense in each game.

The defense, led by Matt Katz, Ryan Aleman, Kyle Pham, Jack Elliott, Chris Cruttenden and Grayson Breeland, was dominant during many moments throughout the tournament.
