U14 Girls, Fair Oaks Storm - Tiburon Champions and Sportsman of the Tournament for Coach Corey Auernig
The Fair Oaks Storm had quite a battle in Tiburon. The tournament started with a 3-0 win over the Walnut Creek Raptors. In the afternoon, they took on the Tiburon Rockers and the game was tied when a Storm player took a shot that the ref saw as a goal. Unfortunately, the nets weren't tied down, and controversy ensued. Knowing the goal went wide, due to a clear view from the team sideline, Coach Corey Auernig approaced the linesman, then discussed the situation with the referee, and the goal was reversed. The Rockers coach couldn't believe the great sportsmanship as she approached Corey and shook his hand. Nevertheless, the Storm scored a goal with 2 minutes remaining to win 1-0. Sunday morning brought Mill Valley, who the Storm beat 5-2, to then face the Petaluma Fireballs in the Championship Game. The Storm fell behind 2 -0 at half. With a hearfelt rally cry, and the wind with them, the girls battled back to tie the game at 2-2 in regulation. In the first overtime the team put in a goal and held on to a 3-2 victory to win the championship. It was a gutty team effort and a great game.

After sweeping their bracket the team went on to the championship game. The Fire took second place after a 1-0 loss in a very tough game. We out played htem, but just couldn't put the ball in the net after 18-0 shots on goal differential in the second half. Great game Ladies!
U13 Girls, Fair Oaks Storm - Fair Oaks Festival Champions
This championship game was certainly a lesson in sticking together, staying positive, and persevering. After cruising into the championship game having outscored their opponents 8-0 and showing a very stingy defense, the first half of the championship put the girls up against an entirely different opponent. The Roseville Spirit started the game more aggressive, beating the Storm to too many balls and finally squeezing in a goal on a header a few minutes before half. The second half showed us all what the girls were about. They made the adjustments they needed to and squeezed in the equalizer on a perfectly placed free kick just outside the 18. After ten minutes of scoreless overtime in which both teams seemed to get stronger, it all came down to penalty kicks that seemed like they would never end. It took nine rounds, but in the end the Storm prevailed and showed great class in congratulating the Spirit on a game well played.

Fair Oaks Arsenal - District CUP Finalists
The Fair Oaks Arsenal were finalists in the Cup Division of District cup, but unfortunately lost to the West Sac. Pumas 6-3. The Arsenal were devastated late in the season by injuries and in the final game were down to their 3rd Goal Keeper and were missing 3 starting defenders. That, combined with the fast Turf field and a very talented forward from the Pumas who scored all 6 goals was the demise of the Arsenal who had a fantastic season. The Arsenal had only given up more than 1 goal to one team going into this final. The Arsenal never lost more than one game in a tournament all season and never finished worse than third in any of those tournaments. Great Season!

Fair Oaks Arsenal - Sonoma Halloween Classic - Finalists
The Fair Oaks Arsenal played probably their best game of the year against the host Sonoma Strikers but came up short, 1-0, in a well played game on both sides that left both teams exhausted. In the end it was a "bad-hop" free kick that was the difference in the game.
The first two games of the tourney were against younger teams and the Arsenal made quick work of both these teams with goals by just about everyone. The last pool game was a tougher one against a quick and scrappy Rohnert Park Pumas team. This team ended up 2nd in the Arsenal pool and deserved it. The Arsenal finally beat them 3-0 but all three were on penalty kicks.
All in all a great Tournament Arsenal!
Fair Oaks Fire - Pumpkin Classic Tournament Champions
After going thru the preliminary round with wins of 3-0 vs the Real FC94, 2-0 verses an extremely aggressive Lincoln Sting, & a 0-0 tie to 49'er Heat, Fair Oaks Fire was once again back in the championship round against the Sunrise Shock, who played the Fire to a very strong 0-0 tie in a previous tournament. But it was pay back time and no time was wasted with teh Fire scoring 2 early goals to lead 2-0 at the half. Less than 6 minutes into the second half the Fire found the back of the net giving us a 3-0 lead. The Shock snuck one in a few minutes later, but the Fire defense had enough of that and cruised the rest of the way to a 3-1 victory.
Fair Oaks Eagles - Santa Cruz Classic Tournament Finalist
The Fair Oaks Eagles returned to Santa Cruz hoping to defend its Title from the previous year. The Eagles advanced out of their Round Robin play with 23 points; having beaten Santa Cruz Jaws 2-0, Central Marin Gunners 3-0, and then playing their toughest match of the tournament tying Pleasanton Rage Orange 0-0. The Eagles advanced to the Championship game, but struggled to develop a disciplined passing game. We finished regulation and overtime tied 1-1 and ended up scoring losing in PK's 4-3. The Eagles almost secured a second championship; but in the process had a great time at a great tournament.
Fair Oaks Arsenal - ARYSL Goal Rush - Finalists
The Fair Oaks Arsenal won their first three games of the tournament in convincing fashion (5-1, 5-0, 5-1) against teams in their pool. Then in the Championship Game the Arsenal played their fellow Division-A rival the Orangevale United. A close game ensued, in the hot sun, and only a tip-in goal by the United (won 1-0), after a momentary breakdown in defense, kept this game from ending in a tie and going to penalty kicks like so many other championships did during the day.
The Arsenal played well all weekend which was highlighted by a coast-to-coast breakaway and goal by Scott Putty that few will forget. As you can imagine, scoring 15 goals in 4 games, there were lots of great shots and some excellent ball movement by the Arsenal players. Also, only giving up 3 goals the entire tournament just shows how impressive the defense continues to be for this team. Next up...the rematch with the OV United.
Fair Oaks Fire - ARYSL Goal Rush Tournament Champions
Once again the Fire battled through 3 tough prelim games prevailing 1-0 against AC United, 1-0 against Mercury & 1-0 against Folsom Kraze.

Thsi time, the Fire was ready taking them once again to Overtime & to P.K.'s where you got it! Rachel "The Wall" Burns recorded her 5th P.K. win in as many tries carrying her team to a 3-1 victory.

Congratulations to all 18 players wearing the U19 Fair Oaks Flah uniform in Ft. Bragg. You came together as a team this weekend and proved you can play with the best. While the team did not get the gold medallions, they earned the respect of their opponents, and everyone watching the game for their skill and energy. The regulation Championship game ended 0-0, but the FLASH significantly out-shot the Santa Rosa Crew even though the Crew was certainly the best defense unit we had seen so far this season. After ending in a tie, the Crew came away with the victory off of penalty kicks. Always practice those penalty kicks!
With 10 teams accepted to the Skunk Classic, Ft Bragg turned yellow and black for the weekend.

Region IV Youth Referee of the Year!
When you read all the referee honors that Trever has received, as well as the significant games he has officiated, it comes as bit of a shock to learn that this 16 year-old Grade 8 only became a referee in 2005. Prior to that, he had been a player who enjoyed the sport, but found the etiquette and camaraderie of the referee community to be more to his liking.
As with most of our Young Referee candidates, Trever is a very bright young man with numerous school honors and a GPA of 3.87. In almost every case, the people who supported Trever’s nomination cite his professionalism, his sense of responsibility, and his commitment to officiating.
Region IV is pleased to name Trever Cox as its Young Male Referee of the Year, and to put his name into consideration for the title of U.S. Youth Soccer’s Young Male Referee of the Year.
Region IV incompasses California North, California South, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Washington and Wyoming
The Eagles competed in the Association Cup in January. As the younger U12 team, the Eagles competed in the U11 bracket of the Association Cup.
