Cali Clasico: more than just a game for one little boy and his mother

By Alice Schroeder

Saturday night was a special night for everyone at California Clasico, but it but it was a little sweeter for one little boy and his mother. 

Jackson Fyffe, 5, went to the game expecting to score the first ceremonial  goal before the game. However, he was rewarded with so much more than just a goal. 

Jackson's mother, Lt. Colonel Celene Fyfee, surprised him on the field after being deployed in Afghanistan since December. The reunion was a complete surprise for Jackson, and as you can see from these photos and video- it was nothing short of amazing.

Jackson still got to score the first goal like he planned, but his mom scored it with him.
