West Coast’s 06 Girls team Krossfire took to the pitch on a beautiful sunny Sunday morning to wrap up their State Cup run with a finals matchup against Cal Odyssey 06GR2 in Modesto. The Krossfire girls came out with fire under their boots, and never cooled off. The forwards Summer Lane, Kendra Riddiough, and Adriana Paneda kept pressing the ball into Cal Odyssey’s zone throughout much of the first half. Summer started off the Krossfire scoring in the third minute, netting a pass from Alana Albarran to take the lead 1-0. About ten minutes later Alana was in the right spot on the far post to knock in a free kick from Madeline Snodgrass to put Krossfire up 2-0. The twentieth minute saw Adrianna finish up a shot by Alana to put Krossfire up 3-0. In the last five minutes of the half, Jasmine Branda added two more Krossfire goals, netting passes from Madylin Harrell and Adrianna to put Krossfire up 5-0 at the half. The second half saw Krossfire move things around a bit. Cal Odyssey was finally able to get one past the Krossfire defense with about ten minutes left to go, but the Krossfire girls answered back as Brittany Hahn netted a penalty kick to give Krossfire the 6-1 victory. The Krossfire defense, led by Ariana Butler, Brittany, Madylin, Chloe Thomas, Sophia Simonds, Dakota Baird, and Madeline were able to hold Cal Odyssey to only ten shots. Goalkeeper Jennessa Maselli played brilliantly making nine saves. This victory capped off an amazing year for this group of girls as they were awarded the NorCal Premier 2 State Cup.
