Mike and Jacob's Ninja Sharks Soccer Game


Saturday, August 26, 2017:

Billed as the "Game of the Century" by USA Today, Camarillo's Pleasant Valley Fields would be the scene of today's much anticipated duel between the purple and black Super Cheetahs and YOUR blue and black Ninja Sharks! 

Ninja Shark Head Coach
Mike Contreras preparing young
Jacob Contreras for the game

Yes, in this grass roots battle, the parking lot and the back of Mike's van would serve as the training/locker room.

Warm Up for the Ninja Sharks

The Super Cheetahs' Assistant
Coach was DJ Sotelo who went
to Rio Mesa HS with Mike's
older brother Andy

DJ's son (#4) is on the Super Cheetahs.

Jacob (#5) was happy
to be alive!

Dominic is the Ninja Sharks
best player beyond a doubt

Is toe punching legal in soccer?

Hey, does that one kid have tattoos on his hands?

Here come the Ninja Sharks . . .

. . . and there goes the ball

High Fives Ninja Sharks!

Post-game hand slaps

Parent Tunnel for all the players
on both teams

I think that all the kids had a good time today, I know that Laurie and I did.

If you want the final score, buy a USA Today on Monday.
