Pull date:

After attaining a #3 seeding in the group stage with a 3-1 record on a wet Jan-26-27 weekend, Santa Monica‚Äôs BU10 All Stars took 2nd place in the Area 1-P tournament the following weekend in Culver City, knocking off a feisty Los Feliz side 3-1 in the quarterfinals and a resilient West LA squad 3-2 in the semis before succumbing to deservedly top-seeded South LA in the finals.  While the team is still trying to get organized with an attacking style of play, this was an outstanding result in its first tournament out the gate, and the boys are justly rewarded as the 2nd Area 1-P representative in the Section One All Star Playoffs upcoming March 2-3 in Riverside, where they will open against the Beach Cities champions from Area 1-D.  Nine of 10 field players found the back of the nets, repeatedly, for the SMBU10 AS during the Area playoffs, and the team conceded just six goals in its five victories during the tournament.  Strong, speedy South LA were deserving champions, and we look forward to paying them back in the Section finals come March!
