Castro Valley United U12 Girls D3 squad opened its 2010 season
with three games in the 150-team Santa Cruz Breakers Cup

Strong defense led the way as the Castro Valley United U12 Girls D3 squad opened its 2010 season with three games in the 150-team Santa Cruz Breakers Cup over the weekend, allowing only three goals and losing just once.

Goalies Maggie Del Grande and Fanta Diomande led the way as United played a powerful Vacaville Thunderbirds Red team to a 0-0 draw to conclude the two-day event Sunday.

On Saturday, Esmeralda Alvarado's goal allowed United to erase a deficit in its 1-1 tie with Premier 99 of Modesto.

Annie Coon, Melissa Posada, Christina Maldonado and Sara Tanco were outstanding on defense throughout the tournament.

Coach Bruce Tanco's squad will play next in the Dublin Shamrock Invitational on Aug. 14-15.
