Malibu’s Red Bulls, the AYSO U-14 league champions, won the area championship with five decisive victories, including four shutouts.

The local team scored 20 goals against opponents while conceding just one tally during the two-day tournament.

The Red Bulls will advance to the sectional playoffs in Bakersfield this February.
