Hotspurs stay hot to win invitational

The Mustang U12 Hotspurs won the Santa Clara Sporting Invitational over the Aug. 10 weekend, a tournament that ranks No. 2 in Northern California at Gotsoccer.com.

In the quarter-final game against the State Champion Placer team, defensive efforts by George Waidelich and skilled play by midfielder Ryan Ringelstein helped the boys turn on the heat to win 2-1.

The team kept up the pressure through the semi-final game against El Dorado, and then defeated De Anza in the final game, winning 3-0. Defender Andrew Evans helped keep the opponents at bay and also stepped up to score one goal for the weekend. Forward Nico Ginocchio battled through defenders and scored three goals for the tournament.
