The Pumitas under 12 boys soccer team of El Camino Real Futbol League in Salinas emerged champions of the Clovis Challenge Cup, which took place Oct. 29-30 in Clovis.
The players (Andres Farias, Victor Juarez, Miguel Lazcano, Daniel Vargas, Cristian Reynoso, Gerardo Flores, Bryan Corona, Jorge Tellez, Nigel McGowen, Fernando Miller, Carlos Pacheco, Alexis Valencia, Alan Cortez, Nick Lopez, Pedro Cortes, Jose Trejo, Alberto Villicana, and Carlos Reyes) defeated Clovis COSC 99 Boys Red 3 to 0 in the preliminary round. Then they beat San Luis Obispo Fire by 3-0. They pummeled St Helens FC Lions 12-0 in the semifinal.
The final against Clovis COSC 99 Boys White was decided by penalty kicks 5-3.
A big congratulations is in order to coach Sergio Herrera, assistant coaches Carlos Vargas, Miguel Lazcano and Alex Reynoso, and everyone who contributes to El Camino Real Futbol League. They are keeping children off the streets, showing them healthy lifestyle choices. This is the way to combat gang violence.
