"Bring it in. . . Champions on 3. . . 1, 2, 3, champions!"

Well, the boys did it!  They won their match tonight, 2-0.  I think the good luck wishes from all over the globe surely helped.  So, for the first time in over 25 years, Half Moon Bay High School is the PAL Ocean Division League Champion!  The team will move on to play in the Central Coast Section Championship of California, starting next week.  But, for now, we get to savor a terrific season.  The boys finished 15-2-2 overall, 11-1-2 in league, and, best of all, it's become cool to play soccer again at the high school.  I think it's all about the jackets. . . but that's a story I'll have to tell later. For now, thanks for all your support, and good-night!
