San Diego Flash Ready To Write The Next Chapter Of Local Rivalry
The SD Flash & SD Boca play this Saturday in what should be another hard fought chapter in this short but lively history between the two clubs. The SD Flash kicked off their 2012 NPSL season last week with a 4-0 win vs FC Hasental.
In this cross-town rivalry between San Diego's two NPSL clubs, SD Flash will host San Diego Boca this Saturday April 14 (5pm Kick-off) at Del Norte High School. The SD Flash are looking to take the three points for a victory this weekend and stay undefeated in the new season.
Head Coach Warren Barton acknowledged that the previous games between the two cross city rivals have been hard fought.
“Our players need no motivation for this clash. They know that they open a 5 point gap on Boca with a win.
“If we start the game strong, the rest should take care of itself. The training sessions conducted by Assistant Coach, Jesus Rico-Sans will show what good shape our guys are in.” Barton said.
The Flash vs. Boca match is the main event of a San Diego soccer showcase this weekend at Del Norte High School. The festivities kick off with the Soccer Star – San Diego trials, where the winner of the 9 webisode online TV show takes up a training agreement with The San Diego Flash Soccer Club.
