Sonoma 2023/2024 2018 Gold Rush Champions

by Panchito Ojeda

Petaluma, CA - The Sonoma 2023/2024 boys went total domination in the 2018 Gold Rush.  Competing against some of the areas best teams they were able to jump out to early leads through stout defense and excellent transition play. 

The team was lead in the goal by Cole Cline (2024) who stepped in to play goalie for the first time.  He had some amazing saves in route to 0 goals allowed in pool play and allowing just one in the championship.  

In their first game Sonoma 2023/2024 played the Sacramento Aces.  After a long defensive stand including killing a penalty the team got the ball to the other end to score their first goal.  They followed that up by generating turnovers and quick strikes attack on offense.  After beating the Aces 9-0, they played the Booth 2024.  The scoring and stout defense continued.  Some early saves lead to some quick clears and more transition offense.

This is the first time the team competed against outside competition this fall.  They will be back at practice again in January as they prepare to compete in the King's Showcase on January 25-27.  Congratulations on a championship fellas!
