Last season, Chula Vista FC enjoyed a thrilling journey to the final of the 2018 Cal South Adult State Cup Men’s Open Division Championship final. It was a great run in a tournament Chula Vista FC had yet to win and the final would be played against San Nicolas FC at Cal State Fullerton’s Titan Stadium.
San Nicolas were tough opposition, having come fourth in the 2017 Cal South Adult State Cup Men’s Division and therefore had the edge in terms of experience in the competition. However, it did not take long for Chula Vista FC to settle into the match and Alberto Diaz opened the scoring with a right-footed strike.
San Nicolas did not give up easily and fought back in the second half, scoring an equaliser to make it 1-1. The game was in the balance and the crowd on edge but it was Chula Vista who responded to the pressure. Diaz struck his and Chula Vista FC’s second goal of the game to win the match and lift the 2018 Cal South Adult State Cup Men’s Open Division Cup.
It was a huge moment for the club and one which will live long in the history of Chula Vista FC but it is time to look toward the future.
