San Juan Soccer “Spooktacular” in capturing Boo-Fest Tournament crown
The San Juan Lightning 2000 White under-10 boys’ soccer team defeated America USA Youth Soccer Club 1-0 to take first place at the October 24-25 “Boo-Fest” soccer tournament hosted by Sacramento United. San Juan reached the championship game by defeating Novato United 2-1 and SF Freedom 9-0 in the preliminary round. A 1-1 tie with Manteca Boca in the third round was sufficient to vault the team into the championship game. The final game was an intense, back and forth match that reflected the rivalry that is emerging between these two talented teams. San Juan scored a goal midway through the second half to capture the title in the top and most competitive bracket of the tournament. Members of the team include Xavier Carter, Ricky Miranda, Amar Dhillon, Joel Tomlinson, Jayce McCain, Ayden Burnett, Abraham Iniguez, BJ Askew, Alexander Chimienti, Andrew Shestek, Jacob Walter, Henry Fisher, and Noah Sonenstein. Rino Chimienti coaches the team.
