Santa Margarita wins Edison Seven-on-Seven Passing Tournament

It wasn’t Santa Ana Mater Dei, St. John Bosco, or any other traditional Southern California soccer powerhouse that won the 2021 Battle at the Beach tournament on Saturday at Edison High by seven against seven. In a stacked field of competition, Santa Margarita won the crown, defeating Servite 25:19 in the final game of the championship playoff round.

“We came here because we wanted to make this program a championship program,” said coach Anthony Rouzier.

Santa Margarita defeated Los Alamitos in the first round and defeated Mater Dei in the second. Servite defeated Edison in his first playoff match and St. John Bosco in his second.

Tight end Niko Lopez made a huge contribution to the Eagles. JSerra Transfer Jaxon Potter already seems comfortable leading Santa Margarita’s offense as quarterback. He was the best in a win over Mater Dei and shared the time with Junior Gavin Shaiginei.

Servite quarterback Noah Fifita played his usual role as an impact performer, taking the ball to receivers Michael Welsh and Keyan Burnett.

Mater Dei receiver CJ Williams was impressive, along with St. John Bosco tight end Matayo Uiagalelei.

Several teams were without top players due to their participation in other events. July is filled with seven-on-seven competitions, and the next two events will be held in St. John Bosco and Mission Viejo next Saturday.

Valencia defeated Chaminade 20:18 and won the consolation round.
