The Galt FC Premier 00B JETS made the long journey down to San Diego to represent Northern California in a National Showcase tournament, the Albion Cup. The boys were the only team from Nor Cal at their age group.

The tournament started Saturday with Galt playing Tustin FC Strikers from Los Angeles, and the boys battled very hard, earning a 2-0 win. Getting the first win out of the way, the team settled into their game and were focused on winning the Cup. The next game was against Encinitas FC Express from Southern California, and it resulted in a dominating 6-0 win for Galt.


On Sunday morning, the boys faced the home team, San Diego's Albion Red.

They had a lot of loud support there, but the boys weren't bothered by it and came out on top 2-0. The semi-finals Sunday night was against Beach FC from Redondo Beach. Galt put the hammer down and won 6-0, earning them a trip to the championship game on Monday. San Juan Capistrano FC United Black was the team they had to face. The game was a battle from the starting whistle and ended up tied 0-0 at the end of the game.

The teams played two 10-minute sudden death overtime periods, still with no score. It came down to penalty kicks, which Galt won by one goal, giving them the Championship Cup. The boys did not allow a single goal against them the entire tournament.
