West Coast Soccer Club U9 girls’ team Krew had an exciting and action packed weekend of soccer. Down 2 players and with just one sub for the weekend, the Krew battled two equally talented teams in league play.
On Saturday, October 19, the Krew played against Danville’s Mustang Forza. Early in the match Mia Hess scored a goal against Forza with an assist from Priscilla Gonzales. Forza answered with a goal of their own and the half ended with both teams at 1 point each. Early in the second half, Taryn Richey raced down the field and scored a goal for the Krew. Forza again answered with their own goal and the game was, again, tied. With minutes left in the game, Mia Hess drove the ball down the field and scored another goal. The Krew’s defense held Forza scoreless in the remaining minutes of play and Krew defeated Forza 3 – 2.
On Sunday, October 20, the Krew faced San Ramon Azuri. The Krew had previously battled and tied Azuri in a game earlier in the league season. The Krew began the game with an early goal by Mia Hess. The Krew’s defense held Azuri scoreless until just seconds before the first half was called. The score at the half was tied, with both teams at 1 point each. During the second half, Krew’s defense and goalkeeper Eliza Williams kept Azuri from scoring. Despite moving the ball down the field, Krew was unable to score in the second half and the game ended in a 1 – 1 tie.
The Krew will be traveling to Concord for a tournament next week and then will begin State Cup play November 2nd.
