WCS 07 Kryptonite defeat San Ramon FC

The West Coast Kryptonite 07 Girls battled to a 2-0 victory over San Ramon United Navy 07 in a physical, back and forth contest between two strong teams. The first half saw San Ramon press hard but they were turned away by the stellar goalkeeping of Piper Sweeney. West Coast Defense, led by Aubrey Westbrook, Nylah Trias, and Athena Taylor helped to keep the game a stalemate until Jariah Indalecio intercepted a pass and slotted into the corner to put Kryptonite up 1-0. The second half saw a hungrier, more determined West Coast team as Kambrie Jehs and Ella Nguyen stopped the physical attacks coming through the middle. Kendall Shetter & Trias kept Kryptonite’s defense well organized. Later in the second half as the pressure was mounting, Kambrie took the ball up the line and sent a pass to a running Nikki Orth, after beating a defender, Nikki placed the ball over the keepers head to the back of the net for the second goal. Jayden kept the pressure on with numerous shots on goal and Madden Black was called upon for the second half as keeper to preserve the shutout for her team. Coach Sara Girotto was impressed with the way her girls played saying, “I loved our intensity in the match. The more physical San Ramon got, the more determined and deliberate we were with our play, all eleven players played outstanding.”
