Fans of BORP Power Soccer were treated to a full weekend of great play from BORP’s 3 teams at the James Kenney Rec Center on December 3-4. The Bay Earthquakes, Crushers and Bombers showed that the hard work they have been putting in at practice is paying off as they hosted strong teams from San Jose, Hollister, Fresno and Santa Barbara.

BORP’s fans thrilled to goals, assists, ball handling, passes, blocks and significant contributions from every player. Not as exciting to the fans, but a big coach pleaser was the tremendous on-court communication, an area of emphasis in practice which the BORP players put to good use on offense and defense during all their matches.

Despite taking 3 tough losses the Bombers matches were characterized by irrepressible spirit as they played hard from start to finish in every game. The Crushers improved communication led to many scoring chances and a stingy defense that only surrendered 1 goal in 3 games (2 wins and a tie). Goals were in abundance for the Bay Earthquakes as they tallied 18 goals in compiling a 3-1 record.
