* Under-10 boys -- The Mountain Road Magic defeated the St. Jane Wolfpack, 2-1, to win the championship of the North County Fall Classic Soccer Tournament.

Alex Wilson and Mike Shepley provided the scoring for the Magic early. Halfbacks Jeremy Coley, Joey Peeler, Chris Pridgen and Tommy Howard provided constant pressure and fed numerous passes to forwards Chris McDevitt and Brandon Flohr.

The Magic defense, comprised of fullbacks Kevin Davis, Brandon Mazur, Ben Granofsky, Chris Canty and Mark Davis, repeatedly cleared loose balls away from the Magic's goal area.

Stoppers Jimmy Walsch and Joey Palank had outstanding efforts keeping the Wolfpack forward line from all but one scoring chance. Keeper Hunter Weedon was credited with several saves near the end of the game to preserve the win.
