League Champions!!! - Apr 21, 2015
An impressive weekend came to an end as the Santa Clara Broncos headed home from San Diego as the league champions, with an automatic bid to nationals. The Broncos came into the weekend as the #1 seed and started off with a 25-12 win against University of San Diego. The Broncos then went on to defeat the University of Arizona in the semifinals with a solid 15-8 win, which allowed them to advance to the finals against UCLA.
The Broncos came out strong in the final game, ready to establish themselves as the league champs. Their composure and self-discipline allowed them to maintain control of the game, scoring the first two goals and never allowing UCLA to gain the lead. The Bruins put up a tough fight with a strong offense, but with tight defense, poised attack, and crucial goalie saves, the Broncos were able to defeat them 13-8. The Broncos played for each other, both on and off the field, which translated into a well earned victory.
The next two weeks the Broncos are dedicating their time to prepare for nationals, both mentally and physically. The league championship was a huge acomplishment for the Broncos and they are ready to put up a hard fight at nationals. It is going to be a very tough tournament, with stiff competition, but the Broncos have been working all season for this opportunity.
Along with preparing on the field, the Broncos are also working off the field as well. The expenses of getting a team of 24 girls to Virginia Beach can add up pretty quickly, so the Broncos have been selling tanks and cups to fundraise for the team. If you are interested in purchasing any team merchandise, feel free to contact our team fundraising chairs!
On another note, congratulations to Hannah Press for making second team All-League and Brooke Betts, Dana Kilsby, Alexa Robinson, and Maggie Von Massenhausen for making first team All-League. Also, congratulations to Brooke Betts, Dana Kilsby, and Beth Ruder for being selected to the All-Tournament team. We are so proud of all of you! Last, but certainly not least, the Broncos want to give a huge shoutout and congratulations to Coach Paige for being awarded Coach of the Year for the WWLL in her first season as a Bronco!
Rain or Shine it's Bronco Time!
Broncos go Undefeated in League - Apr 12, 2015
This past Saturday the Broncos played their last regular season game against UCSB in Santa Barbara. Down at half 4-2, the Broncos realized they needed to make some adjustments. Five minutes in to the second half the Broncos gained some momentum with two goals within two minutes. Holding UCSB to only three goals in the second half, the Broncos were able to defeat the Gauchos. It was a very important victory that allowed the Broncos to finish league undefeated and maintain their 10-0 record. The Broncos have four practices this week to work out the kinks and polish up their game before heading down to San Diego the upcoming weekend for playoffs. It's a great day to be a Bronco!
Santa Barbara Shootout - Feb 23, 2015
The Broncos are continuing their strong start to the 2015 season with a solid showing at the Santa Barbara shootout. They finished the weekend with an impressive 4-0 record, competing against other top nationally ranked teams. The weekend started out on Saturday with an outstanding win against Georgia, followed by an overtime win against Pittsburgh, the defending national champions. The Broncos continued their sweep with two more wins against Colorado State and Arizona State.
This past weekend the Broncos maintained their untarnished record by defeating Cal Berkeley. With only three more league games until playoffs the Broncos are continuing to work hard, preparing for their upcoming competition. As Wayne Gretzky said, "you miss 100% of the shots you don't take", so the Broncos are taking every shot they can to make it to the league championship and nationals this year!
