What does an elite soccer team do when they have a day off? Answer: they take the FOGGY BOTTOMS RACE by storm! FC Samoa athletes are FIT! The u12 team placed 1-2-3-4-5 in their bracket (and thus won the team trophy). Maygan Graves(1st place) was also the 2nd OVERALL female finisher- (13 minutes and change)-amazing at 12 yrs old. There is a "we love to run" subculture among this soccer cohort, and we at FCS couldn't be happier that this is their idea of a day off. Special mention: One doesn't usually think of GOALKEEPERS as distance runners....but Carson Pope defied the stereotype in taking 20th place. Great work girls !

After three years together, FC Samoa’s U15 Girls kicked off their spring soccer season with a virtuoso performance that may have put Humboldt Club soccer on the map! As the only U15 girls traveling team in Humboldt, these talented players entered and dominated the Gold-level, Diablo Cup in Concord, CA this past weekend. With two decisive 4-0 victories over two talented teams (Nevada Elite – Ranked #6 in Nevada & FC Elk Grove – Ranked #27 in CA), and a 1-1 tie vs. Athletico Santa Rosa, these accomplished Humboldt County soccer athletes walked away feeling pretty proud! The highlight of the weekend was a stunning upset of the FC Elk Grove squad, with a 4-0 victory over this highly talented “Premier” team. Olivia Ritter and Ashleigh Harrison combined to score four goals each over only two games, with Samantha Killfoil scoring the decisive single goal in the 1-1 tie game. Maddie Pomerantz continued her patented defensive goalie performance, by allowing only one goal during the entire tournament. Coach, Nick Parker stated, "Our defense-in-depth was near perfect...and our counterattack was as swift and deadly as you will see at this level." This performance bodes well as FC Samoa kicks off their Gold-level spring season in late March.
