SC Flag Football Team Takes 3rd in SoCal Tourney
A team of youth flag football players from San Clemente had an excellent showing at the Southern California Municipal Athletic Federation’s flag football championships in Pasadena over the weekend.
The players, who range from ages 8 to 10, won three games at the event, culminating with a win over a team from Downey to claim third place overall in Division C.
The San Clemente-based team, dubbed the Cyclones, beat defending Southern California champion Porterville and a team from Carson to set up a semifinal game against Blythe. Blythe edged the Cyclones and went on to win the 8-on-8 tournament.
In the consolation bracket, the Cyclones defeated a team from Downey, 14-12, to claim third place. The Cyclones suffered an injury to a player early in the game and, with no substitutions available, had to play most of the game a man down.
The San Clemente Cyclones include: Slater Morgan, Caden Di Re, Drake Nelson, CJ Leinen, Trey Martin, Luke Mogavero, Gage Gloede and Lasiah Jackson. The team is coached by Greg Gloede, Gary Vincent and Rob Martin.
