LAFC U11 teams start spring seasons strong

The Los Alamos Football Club is off to a strong start this season, with the boys U11 club winning its first two games, and the girls U11 club earning a promotion to the Duke City Soccer League Premiere Division.

The U11 girls earned the promotion by defeating the Rio Rapids Northern SC Black Widows 3-1 in the first game of the season March 10.

Margaret Steinkamp, Estella Remillieux and Tirryn Sutherland all scored goals. Molly Castille had an outstanding performance as goalkeeper.

After a successful Fall season in the Challenge One bracket, this victory officially moves the LAFC Lasers 07 into the top bracket of competition, where they will compete with the best teams in the state for their age group. This is an extraordinary achievement for their first year playing in the competitive Duke City Soccer League.

The U11 boys have begun the season on a roll, picking up 3-1 victories over the AYSO United EM Elements and the Clovis White soccer team.

In the opener against AYSO, the Lasers began with a sequence of crisp passes starting with Dhruv Thulasidasan across field to Liam Cunningham, over to Sammy Brown, through to Taelin Stanfield, who then centered it to James Ito, who scored a nice far-post goal. Goalie Hayden Watkins made several key saves to keep the score 1-0 at halftime.
