“The high school boys had a blast,” Leverage and Bosco coach said. “The 60-second shot clock made the game extremely fast. The 2-point arc was challenging, but we had a few made for JV and Varsity.”

Defender Will Bryan of Leverage scored what the video caption said was the tournament’s first 2-point goal, drawing a flag in transition then ripping a shot from straight on with the free-play opportunity.

In addition to Leverage, varsity squads from Ronin (formerly ) LA Cobras and Santa Monica participated, along with JV squads from , Thousand Oaks, Cobras and Glendale. and Leverage also played a middle-school game.

“It was a fun, experimental tournament,” Jewett said. “Next year we will have more fields and teams.”
