The Lodi Crushers BU16 (boys under 16) soccer team reached the quarterfinals of the CYSA (California Youth Soccer Association) Association Cup Tournament last weekend.

They advanced through the preliminary rounds in Lemoore, Ca by placing first in their round robin bracket, scoring six goals in three games, while allowing only one. The Crushers defeated Alameda in the round of sixteen, in overtime, 2-1, when Austin Mettler scored the "golden goal" three minutes into the second overtime peiod. It was his second goal of the day.

The Crushers scored first in the quarters against the Folsom Fury when Clayton Silva scored on a through ball from Mettler, but Folsom managed to tie the game right before halftime.

The two teams played dead even until Folsom scored with six minutes remaining in the game to go up 2-1 with what would prove to be the game winning goal, ending Lodi's bid for the semi-finals.
