Los Osos girls soccer repeat as Claremont Tournament Champions

Los  Osos win Claremont Tourney

The Los Osos Grizzlies girls soccer team won back to back games on the final day of the Claremont Tournament to win the trophy for the second consecutive season.

The Grizzlies found themselves down 1-0 in the first half of the championship game against the South Hills Huskies, before responding with three unanswered goals in the second half to seal the victory.

Karley Whiteman, Kyrssa Johnson and Serena Camacho each scored a goal in the second half rally for the Grizzlies.

Whiteman believes that tournament victories like the one against the Huskies can bring the Grizzlies together as a stronger unit going forward in the season.

“I think it is really bringing us together and helping us learn to play as a team and figure out what works,” Whiteman explained. “Especially when we go down a goal like we did in the (Claremont Tournament) finals. It is helping us realize our potential and what we can do on the field.”

After giving up their only goal in the tournament to the Huskies, the Grizzlies made the most of the halftime period to come together and prepare for a second half rally against a team they had played just two days prior in tournament pool play.

“(The Huskies) figured out that we play a lot down the flanks of the field,” Camacho said. “We changed our plan of attack and took the ball down the middle of the field which lead to the (rally.)”

The Grizzlies’ mindset was also mentioned as a key factor to the second half rally.

“A lot of it was a change in mindset,” Camacho stated. “We had to think positive and really work together as a team.”

Prior to advancing to the tournament finals against the Huskies, the Grizzlies shutout the Brea Olinda Wildcats, 4-0, in the semifinals.

Kala McDaniels contributed to the Grizzlies victory by scoring one of the four goals. Johnson, Whiteman, and Camacho also scored one apiece.

The Grizzlies (7-0-3) will return to the field Dec. 26 in the Excalibur Tournament.
