The California Magic U15 boys advanced to the semifinals of the CYSA Premiere bracket of the State Cup in their first tournament of the season on April 25. They beat the No. 4 team in Northern California, Santa Clara Sporting White, 2-1 and shut out their last opponent the Sacramento Pumas to advance.
They played very well in their loss in the semifinals to No. 3 Santa Clara Sporting Green. Coaches Jasko Begovic and Kamani Hill say the boys showed great character in moving on to the semifinals and are off to a great start so early in the year.
Begovic said, "Only 2-3 weeks into the Spring season, our boys are showing a tremendous level of dedication, commitment and cohesiveness. They have created a strong culture as a team and we are very proud of them and their accomplishments so early in the season."
