Burlingame Titans 03B Take 1st Place at Coppa D’Oro

Titans

The Burlingame U10 Boys Titans squad began their season with a win in their age division in the club-sponsored Soccer By The Bay Tournament. The season was a series of ups and downs that ended in a bad showing at the Norcal State Cup games in Woodland. However, the never-say-die Titans ended their season on a high note as they redeemed themselves at the Juventus Coppa d’Oro, and then some!

Despite bone-chilling temperatures in the upper 30’s they finished their first three games 4-1, 9-1 and 4-1, propelling them into the championship game against the highly regarded Palo Alto Soccer Club White, a 3-game winner themselves. After battling through 50 minutes of hard fought soccer, the game ended in a 1-1 draw. Defying the elements that were trying to sap their energy, the Titans converted 3 of their 4 penalty kicks taken and the Titan’s goalkeeper blocked 2 of the 3 shots of the previously undefeated Palo Alto side as they brought home the championship cup!
