OCWPC Tournament Results // 2019 Evan Cousineau Memorial Cup
33 Games. Eight Teams. Six Pools. One Great Weekend.
Big thanks to all the parents, coaches and players who made this past weekend’s 2019 Evan Cousineau Memorial Cup another great one.
OCWPC fielded eight teams for the tournament and we were blessed with that dreamy kind of SoCal fall weather we all love – brisk mornings, breezy & warm afternoons, and those cool evenings with big sapphire skies that mean autumn has arrived… is there anything better, folks, than watching your kids play this sport on days like these? I don’t know… seems like a highwater mark to us…

18U Girls Team | Coach Ivan Buich
We asked one of the team Dads, Mike Fitzpatrick, about the weekend and this is what he had to say – “The team came prepared for the tournament, pressing the team representing Santa Margarita High School (SET Blue) to a close finish, but ultimately falling to a 7-10 loss. From there on, the team played outstanding, finishing with three strong wins against Riverside, SoCal Black & Huntington Beach WPC Blue.
Our OC girls definitely bonded during the tournament and their support for each other was apparent from both the scores and the camaraderie they had in & out of the water.”
