Avalanche Blue and Black Finish Among Best at State Cup

Avalanche Black and Avalanche Blue wrapped up their fall seasons with games Championship weekend for Norcal State Cup for U13 Girls on Saturday, February 14th in Modesto.  In an age group fielding a robust 136 teams at the beginning of the State Cup tournament in early September, both teams played effectively through several rounds to reach the top eight, quite an accomplishment for the program!   In the final games on Valentine's Day, Avalanche Blue outscored EGSL rival Santa Rosa Earthquakes 3-1 to capture 5th place in State Cup.  Avalanche Black played an even match against San Juan Spirits Pre-ECNL team, through regulation and two overtimes, eventually losing the game in penalty kicks, to finish in 4th place in State Cup.  Congratulations to coach Albertin Montoya and all of the Avalanche Black and Blue players on a great run!
