Oakdale United Under-12 Strikers forward Alex Zamora has proven that you don’t need overwhelming size to make things happen when it matters most.
Zamora gashed the West Sonoma County defense and much larger opponents with his skills and tenacity for repeated trips deep into enemy territory on Saturday, Jan. 21 during the CYSA Association Cup Championship contest in Elk Grove.
He was a big reason the Strikers dominated ball control and Zamora even found the net twice for two huge scores during a 3-2 Oakdale win. Zamora earns Athlete of the Week recognition from The Leader for his big effort.
The goals helped the Strikers bring home the state title for their age and division in competitive soccer and The Leader also gives a collective nod of congratulations to the U12 boys for their outstanding season of success on the pitch.
