U-12 Legacy vs. Burgundy Beasts
By Wendy Watson

Saturday Oct. 30 brought a beautiful cloud-filled sky to the soccer fields at El Tejon School. Our U-12 teams were charged and ready to go as Legacy (coached by Laura Raymond and Loren Graham) met the Burgundy Beasts (coached by Jeff Neeley and Bill Shillig, sponsored by Mountain Auto Body).

It was an intense and scoreless first half. Legacy keeper Robert Jensen and Beasts keeper Alex Smith swiped every ball that came their way.

In the third quarter Legacy’s Mason Raymond made a spectacular goal, assisted by Lea Graham. Both teams made numerous attempts to score with energy and skill.

In the last seconds Lea Graham took the ball from her defensive position all the way to the net to score a goal! Final score, Legacy 2, Beasts 0.

Players and coaches displayed great sportsmanship, making this game what AYSO is all about… Fun, Fair and Safe!
