The South Coast Youth Football Tritons have claimed two regional titles over the past week, including a big win by the Mighty Mite Division Tritons on Saturday, Nov. 20, in Arizona.

The Mighty Mite SCYF Tritons dominated the Charter Oak Chargers of Covina, 28-0, to capture the Pop Warner Wescon Division 2 Regional Championship at Deer Valley High School in Glendale, Arizona.

The Mighty Mite-level Tritons joined the Pee Wee-level Tritons as Wescon champions, as the Pee Wee Tritons earned the regional title without having to travel to Arizona. After winning in the semifinals on Nov. 13 in Buena Park, the Pee Wee Tritons learned their regional final opponent—also the Charter Oak Chargers—had forfeited, resulting in the Pee Wee Tritons being crowned as champions.

Not only did both Triton teams earn their regional titles over Charter Oak teams, they both earned victories over teams from the regional host Deer Valley of Glendale, Arizona in the semifinals. The Mighty Mite Tritons defeated the Deer Valley Hurricanes, and the Pee Wee Tritons shut out Deer Valley OTB Elite.

The Mighty Mite Tritons, who are 7- to 9-year-olds from 45-105 pounds, are coached by Dan Granite. The Pee Wee Tritons, who are 9- to 11-year-olds from 75-135 pounds, are coached by Chance King.

The Pop Warner Wescon Region is comprised of Southern California, Southern Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii.
