Congratulations to the West Valley United 2005B team for winning 2nd place in the 2017 MVLA Bay Area Spring Cup U12B Gold Bracket!
WV United 05B, coached by Ezequiel Barajas, made the finals by beating out Star Academy, Sunnyvale Alliance and Stanford United. This was a tough group of teams but the boys never wavered.
In the finals the team faced DeAnza Force 05B II. The two teams played hard for a grueling hour. West Valley lead 2-1 in the final minutes. DeAnza tied it up at 2-2 in the final 2 minutes of the game – Overtime play! Both teams dug deep as they went into the overtime with “golden goal” playing rules. Although the boys played their hearts out, this one got away, and West Valley United ended in 2nd place with a final score of 2-3.
At West Valley, not only are our players learning soccer, developing technical skills and improving their soccer IQ in making good decisions, they are also learning life lessons: how to keep their heads high in tough situations, how to maintain a high level of intensity throughout the game, and how to always be looking at what they can do better to improve their game. We are proud of our WV United 2005B Team!! Go United!!
