The LAFC Boys U12/11 team squeaked out a tight 3-2 victory over a physical SF Romero team in Los Alamos.

In the second half LA quickly went 2-1 down, but showed great determination to get back in front, with Thor Olso and Inbody scoring goals. Samuel Pesiri and Ryan Peterson played a very tough game and overall LA showed great courage to close out the win.

The Co-ed U14/13 LAFC Lightning were narrowly defeated 3-2  against a tall and physical Santa Fe Bonilla team. The Lightning went up 2-0 in the first half with goals scored by Shawn Newman in a fast drive down the field and strong left-footed shot and by Lars Olso off of a nice passing sequence from Olivia Bell to Newman to Olso.
 
With a 2-1 lead at the half, LA’s first-time goal keeper, Lily Shevits, made good saves against SF, but LA let down their guard a couple of times and SF Bonilla was eventually able to get in two goals. The LAFC Lightning continues to gain strength on the wings and continued strong defensive play by Katherine Fanning, Nyla Lee, Irene Abfalterer, Addy Witt, and Kaia Blue.
