Youth soccer report
The Eureka Wolfpack under-13 select soccer team proudly took home fourth place in the Pumpkin Kick Tournament held in Marysville / Yuba City the last weekend in October. The Halloween-theme tournament was especially scary for the boys because, due to a clerical error, they were placed in a year-higher age division.
"We have to play as a team and not as individuals,” coach Joe Breault told the team. “If we do that we will be alright."
