Santa Barbara Soccer Club Girls White 2005 Team Wins 2017 Cal South State Cup Governors Youngers Division
The Santa Barbara Soccer Club Girls’ White 2005 Team won the Cal South State Cup Governors’ Division becoming the first girls’ team in the Club’s history to win a State Cup.
The Santa Barbara Soccer Club Girls White 2005 Team (SBSC G05) had a rough start in the fall 2016 soccer season with numerous team injuries and a change in coaching staff. As a result, they ended their fall season with a few wins and some players leaving the team. Entering the Cal South State Cup was a chance to see how this newly formed team would play together.
The Cal South State Cup Governors Youngers Tournament took place from February 4, 2017 to March 5, 2017. The SBSC GO5 team played 9 games total scoring 15 goals with only 1 goal against them, which they accidently scored themselves. Their overall record was 8-0-1, which is 1.67 goal for the SBSC GO5 team and .11 for their opponents. This team also had 8 shutouts out of the 9 games.
In the finals, on March 4, 2017 in Temecula, the SBSC G05 beat the AV SC Storm from Apple Valley with a tied game and overtime period secured their win during the PK period ending with a score of 5-4. This was an exhausting game for everyone and a real tribute to the girls who were truly motivated and driven to win this tournament. Also, a big thank you goes out to Coach Waid Ibrahim, a special coach who connected with this newly formed team early on and inspired them to be the best they could be.
The SBSC White GO5 team is coached by Waid Ibrahim. Players are Lily Blankenhorn, Caitlyn Early, Izzy Garofalo, Camila Jeronimo, Jenna and Sadie Johnson, Maya Klanfer, Eden Lazarus, Izzy Romero, Zoe Thomas, Siena Urzua, Gabi Wilcox, and Kasia Wolf.
SBSC White GO5 – You are the Cal South State Cup Governors Youngers Division Champions! Congratulations!
