News Article from 2012 Event
The first Bay Area Copa Univision Five-a-Side event was held at the Morgan Hill Outdoor Sports Center this weekend. The event and festival featured forty teams of eight players each from around Silicon Valley with divisions and brackets in age groups ranging from nine years old to adults. This format feature teams playing with five a side during the games on a small field with large goals to promote scoring, and Univision has found this format to be very successful each year in in San Antonio, Dallas, Fresno, and Los Angeles
The highlight of the event was the featured Celebrity game between the blue team from the Morgan Hill Police Department and the red team comprised of the Anchors, Dee-Jays, and Personalities from the Univision family of companies. All three local Univision TV stations and all four radio stations were covering the event, which was cheered on by a large audience ranging from participating Copa teams, staff from team Univision, community leaders including Mayor Steve Tate, and the many families watching their teams.
With a backdrop of a ten piece mariachi band playing live, Univision’s play by play announcer highlighted the spirited efforts with humorous play insights, audience interviews, and the triumphant "GGOOOOOOOOAAAAAAL" shout after every score. At halftime, the scoreboard showed the Police 5 goals to Univision's 2 goals, chiefly behind the defensive play of Dave Swing who made some remarkable saves as goalkeeper.
The second half saw a determined Univision team led by the General Manager of Univision San Francisco, Raul Rodriguez, who orchestrated a comeback to tie the score just as head referee Dave Kaeini blew the final whistle and declared the need for a penalty kick off. The tension was felt by all, and in the end it was Shane Palsgrove's goal that was the deciding factor for the Blue team, with the MHPD winning in penalty kicks 4 to 3. Palsgrove said "Our entire team had a blast and we can't wait for the next game."
Jeff Dixon, President of the Morgan Hill Youth Sports Alliance, which produced the event and also runs the Outdoor Sports Center, said, "It was a beautiful day and the kids had a lot of fun. We hope this event grows and becomes a major summer event for many years to come. Univision was spectacular to work with and we hope this is the first of many events with them here in Morgan Hill."
