The Lamorinda U16 boys team started 2017 with a bang! With 11 games in to the new year they recorded an amazing 10-0-1 record, outscoring their opponents 32-to-6.
It was a huge month of May for these boys. They became champions not once but twice within a week: NPL1 Spring League Champions, and, NorCal State Cup State Division Champions.
Led by Coach Billal Samy, these boys made Lamorinda Soccer Club history by not only becoming the first boys' team to reach the State Division Finals, but also the first to win and become champions in a very tense, physical game against higher-ranked San Jose Earthquakes PDA.
It also must be noted that the U15 boys team, also coached by Billal Samy, became champions in their respective Spring season and State Cup tournament. Congratulations to both teams.
Lamorinda SC wishes both teams the best of luck as they begin their summer tournament season.
