“The Final (Championship Game) was a rematch of last year's soccer championship and just like last year, Hurley prevailed! This year's game (2013) was very intense and closely played. Ivan Arellano of Hurley scored the only goal of the game while Hurley goalie Ramiro Pelestor made many beautiful saves to preserve the victory. Not bad for a season that was supposed to be a rebuilding one! Next year 2014 Hurley returns 15 of their 21 players on the roster,” said Munguia. “Hurley is fortunate to have an abundance of talented soccer players. This year was no exception. The Hurley team went undefeated, meeting every challenge posed to them. As the season progressed, our players played with increased vigor, enthusiasm and confidence, even when they were down on the score. We are very proud of our boys and girls for giving their best to the sport they love,” said Navarrete.
