On November 24, 2013, All West Lacrosse hosted their 6th annual 7 x 7 Turkey Shootout for U9 through U19 teams at Treasure Island. A group of 13 Chiefs Varsity played a round robin pool of eight teams and accumulated a >+60 goal differential (goals scored for less goals scored on) - the highest in all brackets. The Chief’s stingy defensive group worked as a cohesive unit with the middies to limit the opposition’s scoring opportunities. It was a rare occasion where our goalie faced a 1-1 situation with a shooter within 3 yards of the cage. On the transition and offensive sides, the boys were all moving – keeping their counterparts off balance. The Chief’s high ground ball win percentages, strong stick skills, crisp passing, and accurate shots – kept the opposing goalies under constant pressure.
In the championship game against Republic Lax (Berkeley High School), Will Burke’s goal tending was outstanding. He stopped a huge percentage of shots on goal and the Chief’s defense, transition and offensive skills clearly outmatched Republic Lax with a final score of 25-19. The Chiefs finished the tournament with 4 wins and no losses to take the 2013 U19 All West 7 x 7 Turkey Shootout title.
Many of the Chief’s U19 parents remarked after the game…”they demonstrated tremendous teamwork and sportsmanship”, and “we can’t wait to see them take the field in the upcoming season.”
Congratulations to Anthony Maminski (A), Nick Cacas (A), Michael Daboll (A), Collin Meilke (A,M), Ross McFadyen (D,M), Kyle Gong (D), Matt Grebing (D), Will Burke (G), Nikko Adams (M), Troy Loper (M), Cole Waller (M), Bennie Delumpa (LSM), Bryan Ikeda (M), and Eric Bender (didn’t play due to injury).

Ask yourself this:
What can I do to improve my team?
What can I do to improve myself as a player?
What can I do for the lacrosse community?
This is what it takes to be a Chief!

The California High School Club Lacrosse State Championship was held on Bailey Field at Santa Rosa Junior College this past Saturday. The game featured the South Valley Chiefs out of the San Jose area and Oceanside Untied out of the San Diego area. This was an outstanding match up between two great teams with two contrasting styles of play. Oceanside was extremely athletic with a chaotic style of up and down lacrosse, attacking the goal with individual ball carrying based threats at almost every offensive position. South Valley played their own version of run and gun lacrosse with more traditional fast break oriented offense supported by an aggressive ball hawking defense.
The first half saw the Chiefs down 6-3 having been caught off guard by OU's unorthodox system as the team from Southern California took advantage of multiple penalties and dominating time of possession. However, the second half was a totally different story. Finding their transition based rhythm, the Chiefs shot the lights out going on a 9-0 run in the second half. South Valley's depth, experience in big time games and superior coaching carried the Chiefs to a 14-7 win, a perfect 19-0 record and the club's first ever state championship.
The NCJLA wishes to congratulate Head Coach Elliot Bender, all of the South Valley Chiefs, and their supporters for keeping the State Cup trophy in Northern California for 2012.
Registration for Spring 2014 will be open on this website in September. Practice begins the week of January 5, 2014.
