The MCSC U12 Storm soccer team opened its Classic League fall season by defeating its first two opponents. The Storm earned the first two victories with speed and teamwork on the offensive attack, combined with swift defensive pressure at the back - a formula that makes them a top ranked team in the Western division.
The Storm treated their fans to a 2-1 win against the talented GCCSA Cobras in the home opener on Aug. 18. The Shelby squad started strong, matching the Storm in speed and intensity, and both teams found offensive combinations to enable shots on goal. The Storm scored first midway through the first half, when Juan Gomez found a seam in the Cobra defense and pushed forward to flick the ball into the corner of the net. Near the end of the half, Tito Diaz added a second point with a double strike on a ball mishandled by the Cobra goalie.
