This past weekend, I headed out to San Jose, California with my Arizona Heat teammates to participate in the 2009 Silicon Valley Power Charge Soccer Tournament. This year's tourney was the Western Regional Qualifier for the 2009 national tournament in Fishers, Indiana. The first and second place teams automatically earned a bid to Nationals, while those who placed third were still in the running for wild-card spots. After five games of pool play, we found ourselves playing the Santa Barbara Rollin' Gauchos for third place in Division I. After 40 grueling minutes, both teams were knotted up at zero and headed into overtime. What happens next was some of the most exciting 10 minutes in power soccer that I have ever experienced. Take a look at the YouTube videos that I've uploaded and see for yourself.
Here's a clip of some of my power soccer practice before our regional tournament in San Jose, Ca. I shot it on my new Flip Mino HD camcorder (which is fantastic). The song is "Walk Away" by Mad at Gravity.
This past January, I participated in the PowerBlast power soccer games at ASU. The Minnestoa Courage Blizzard came down to play a few games with me and my Arizona Heat teammates. Overall, we had a great time and look forward to having the regional tournament here in Arizona next year. Take a look at the video below, I've put together some highlights of one of the games we played at the SRC at ASU.
