“This is my first league championship coaching a club soccer team. These girls have been playing club soccer for me for three years now and all their hard work, dedication and practice paid off huge this fall season," Coach Josh Tyree said of the season. "I knew we were getting better and better with each spring or fall season, and the girls were clicking into the system. I just can’t believe we won our league. That’s a huge deal when competing against club teams from much bigger cities. I’m so proud of these girls and I can’t wait to see what these girls can do this year for the varsity Warriors high school team.”
The Gryphons 2007 Girls team also played on Saturday. Coach Chesalon Gracian said, “We were unlucky this weekend. We were down a few of our starters and just couldn't seem to get and contain the ball on the offensive side of the field. Just some minor things we will need to tweak and push through to hopefully change that.” The Gryphons 2007 Girls team challenged all game long but lost to a Santa Clarita United team 5-0.
The Gryphons 06 Boys team rebounded this week with a great performance considering the last time they played the Dynamo 06, they lost 13-0.
