STOCKTON, CA – After four months of victories, challenges and strengths the professional soccer team California Cougars closed their 2010-11 season at the Stockton Arena

The professional team; along with some rookie young players, were satisfied with the season finale. “I believe we had a positive season.  A lot of our young players were thrust into the spotlight and gained a lot of positive experience,” said player and team coach Antonio Sutton.

Although the season concluded with an 11-8 win over the Edmonton Drillers, the
Cougars faced major challenges along the way.  “Our team suffered injuries like no other team I’ve ever been involve with,” said Sutton.  The injuries forced the remaining team players to go outside their comfort zone as they had to fill-in positions they were not used to playing.

During the season the Cougars faced teams like The San Diego Sockers, The Cincinnati Kings and Tacoma Starts; additionally they challenge Mexico’s Revolución Tijuana and Canada’s Edmonton Drillers.  As they enter the off-season the coach plans to reinforce team building, “If we can get four or five players working together all summer; by the time the next season starts, we`ll be able to piece our Cougars puzzle together in four or five small groups instead of twenty pieces,” said Sutton. 

Starting in November, the upcoming 2011-12 offers fans a full season of excitement with a number of home games which will include the traditional “College Night” and community support as this years “Clothes Drive Game”.
