03 Kaos take 2 on the weekend

The West Coast Kaos U14 girls claim two victories over the weekend in NPL league play and the Norcal Premier State Cup knockout round.  On the road in Sacramento, Kaos beat out the Blues FC 1-0.  And at home on Sunday, Kaos delivered a 2-0 shutout to Force to advance to the next round of state cup matches.

In a Norcal National Premier League (NPL) game, Kaos traveled to Sacramento to take on a tough Blues FC Navy team. The match remained scoreless for 70 minutes until West Coast finally executed on a corner kick.  West Coast Midfielder, Kate Zeck, delivered a perfectly place ball to the back post where Kaos Defender, Kassidy Brackett, connected with her head to place the ball just outside the reach of the Blues Keeper.  Kaos moved ahead 1-0.  But the Blues were determined to answer.  In a last minute attack,  the Blues’ Forward broke free from the Kaos backline and fired a shot that went well over the top of the goal.   With the shot missed, the whistle blew and the match ended giving Kaos a 1-0 victory.

On Sunday, Kaos faced the Southbay’s Force in a Norcal State Cup knockout game.   Higher ranked than Force, Kaos came into the match with the advantage and favored to win.  As the match started, Kaos went on the attack and Force could not keep up with Kaos’ relentless offensive pressure.  West Coast’s Forward, Alivia Ganz, scored first with a power shot from the left.  The first half ended with a Kaos 1-0 lead.

As the second half started, Kaos continued their offensive assault.  The second goal for West Coast came from Attacking-Mid, Alyssa Williams.  Williams navigated her way through the middle and found a hole in the Force defense to sink a shot into the right corner of the net.  Kaos moved ahead 2-0 and closed out the match with solid victory and a spot in the next round of state cup play.
