In only its first year, the Williams American Youth Soccer Organization U-10 team, Manchester United, completed a successful undefeated season and advanced to league championships in Antelope, California early November where the team placed second.

“For a first year team, this was impressive” said Williams City Manager Chuck Bergson, “This really helped put Williams on the map. The team should be very proud of their accomplishments.”

The team of 12 players, both boys and girls under the age of 10 practiced hard under the direction of their Coach Guillermo Hernandez and Assistant Coach Ivan Garcia.

“The teams were excited about attending championships,” said parent Lorena Padillia, “They weren’t too happy about the extra conditioning, but they practiced twice as hard as they knew they had to improve their game.”

First time Coach of Youth Soccer, Guillermo Hernandez of Maxwell was excited and satisfied with the teams performance.

“I enjoyed seeing these players grow from the very first practice to making it 2nd place in the U10 division at the Antelope tournament.” Said Guillermo, “It has been a great experience for the children more than anything.”

When the team arrived at the championships, there were surprised and a bit intimidated by the other teams lack of co-ed team members.

“The other team(s) had all boys and Manchester United was one of  the only co-ed team.” Said Padillia, “I was surprised by watching the girls fight for the ball and play like one of the boys. Despite this challenge, the team still placed second.”

The coaches highlight the team’s success not only to the hard work to the dedicated teammates, the parents played a huge role as well.

“We had a great group of volunteers,” said Padillia, “all the parents participated and helped out.” ■
