Team brings home State Cup Trophy
“Scripps United,” the Scripps Ranch Soccer Club Girls Under 14 Team, stormed its way through the California State Cup Tournament over the three weekends from Feb. 10 to 25. Games were played at the Oceanside SportsPlex and at Galway Downs in Temecula.
The Team, which also won the Presidio League Championship in both 2016 and 2017, posted some amazing State Cup Tournament statistics. It won 8 straight games – 6 of those by shutouts. With both strong offense and tough defense, the team scored 37 goals in the tournament and only allowed 2 by opponents.
The team is coached by Jeff Williamson and managed by Jim Wick, both long term Scripps Ranch residents and members of the Scripps Ranch Soccer Club led by Cha Cha Namdar.
