CCAA Champions and Beyond

CARSON, CA (November 4, 2012) - I was able to cover the CCAA Division II Soccer Championships between UC San Diego vs. Sonoma State. The game was a 1-1 draw at the end of regulation and remained tied through double overtime. The game was decided in penalty kicks with the Tritons winning 4-2.

The Tritons post season hopes for an 8th National Championship is still alive by beating Seattle Pacific in the second round, Western Washington in the third round and the Colorado Mines in the quarterfinals in penalty kicks (6-5). The Tritons are in Evans, Georgia and are two games away from the National Championship.

Here's some selections from the CCAA title game.
