“We played really well as a team,” Shock coach Aaron Karsh said. “We had a lot of new players for whom this was their first time on the field in competition, and they fit right in with our returning players.”
Shock opened play on Saturday with a 9-3 win over Independence, made up mostly of Santiago HS players, then followed with a 7-0 win over Team 395. In Sunday’s bracket play, Shock defeated Buku HS Silver out of Mater Dei 8-6 then defeated NOC out of Woodbridge HS 11-4 in the title game.
“I’m really excited about our group,” Karsh said. “This is the second tournament win for this group; we won in Santa Barbara over the summer and are looking forward to more.”
