PLEASANTON — The Capital Athletic Soccer Academy BOCA U16 girls’ soccer team, CASA BOCA Jrs ’95, shut out the competition at the elite Pleasanton Rage College Showcase, July 21-23.

Of 56 teams participating in their age bracket, only two teams kept their competitors from scoring on them. The tournament was hosted by the Rage Soccer Club and featured teams from Utah, Washington, Oregon, Arizona and California with coaches from more than 80 colleges in attendance.

BOCA played a smart possession game, taking advantage of their passing. They had great movement on the ball, played a quick game and took every opportunity to shoot. Taking advantage of their opportunities resulted in an 8-0 tournament total and winning total points in their bracket.

The first game, a 5-0 shutout against Southern California’s Crescenta Valley, saw the girls completely dominate. In the second game they went up against AJAX United Elite to defeat the team 2-0. Game three saw them against another strong Southern California club, FRAM, and ended in a 1-0 victory for BOCA. The fourth and final showcase game was played against a quick Santa Clara Sporting team. When the goalie came out too far, BOCA seized the opportunity to pass her by and score the only goal of the game and a final win of 1-0 and a shutout tournament.

The girls are currently scheduled to play in the upcoming West Coast Futbol Classic in San Juan Capistrano  Aug. 20-21, and begin their fall season in September in the new Regional Academy League.

Capital Athletic Soccer Academy is a competitive soccer club for boys and girls in Sacramento and El Dorado counties. The club is dedicated to teaching the skills and tactics of the game based on fluid possession and team orientation. To learn more visit capitalathletic.com.
