CHULA VISTA –The Presidio League season is six weeks in and the standings are beginning to tell which teams could have what it takes to make a run for first place in their respective brackets. We take a look at where the Xoloitzcuintles teams sit after five weeks of play.


The Xolos Academy FC teams have played in very competitive matches. Some teams have come out with better results than others but they all remain in the hunt for a title run.


The Under-9 team coached by Eduardo Eduardo Covarrubia sits in fifth place in the Under-9 Green South table with nine points and a 3-2-0 record. The team is coming off a 3-1 win against Riptide Blue last week.
