Santa Monica met a Camarillo team in the championship game who came in also with a perfect record, three shutouts, all with the same scores. The final game was a hard fought match with the score 0-0 at the half. Early in the third quarter, Val Romo received a pass from Fiona Story (assist) and scored with a beautiful, bending shot from just inside the right touchline to make the score 1-0. Santa Monica maintained an insurmountable defense for the remainder of the game which resulted in their 4th shutout of the weekend and the championship. more
