San Elijo GU11 Nomads Win to Finish Season Strong!

The San Elijo GU11 Nomads completed their inaugural regular season campaign with a 1-0 win over Carlsbad Lightning to secure 2nd Place in their AA-C Presidio League Division. A success, and total team effort on many levels! The Nomads took the lead with ten minutes left in their final regular season game, as Striker, and leading goal scorer Faith Fitzsimmons beat a Lightning defender outside the 18 yard box, and then proceed to bury a ball in the back left hand corner of the goal past the Lightning goal keeper.

With this win, the Nomads finished their season with a 9-1-4 record! The team will also look to make a run in the State Cup Tournament beginning at the end of January!

With this success, the team will be expanding it’s presence in San Elijo/San Marcos next year, and intend on fielding 2 competitive girls teams at the U11/U12 ages, and 2 competitive boys teams at the U9 and U10 age levels. The potential to field more teams at other age levels in the near future is a real possibility!

The Nomads will be holding Open Winter Soccer Sessions throughout December and January in partnership with The Academy at San Elijo. The sessions currently are age specific, and will be held on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s at Hilltop field. 2nd/3rd grade boys 5-6, and 4th/5th grade girls from 6-7. The cost for these sessions are $10 per session or $60 for December (7 sessions) and $70 per session (8 sessions). They will also be holding tryouts in February. More details soon.
