Soccer club triumphs


The boys’ U13 Apex soccer team, comprised of many Malibu residents, won the California Cup and earned a U.S. Club Soccer National Championship Regional Berth in June. The team posted a 5-0-1 record during tournament play, came back from trailing by two goals in two separate games and played two overtime games prior to winning the championship in a penalty kick shootout.
