WCS 08 Wolfpack in 2nd round of State Cup

West Coast WolfPack began their second round of State Cup in Ripon. After an opening game loss to Mustang Black the team responded well with back to back wins over Davis Legacy and Mill Valley Rockers. WolfPack took second place in their group and earned the second seed in the Gold Division flight 2. West Coast would now take on MBSL Aztekitas, the Wolfpack defense lead by Goal Keeper Parker Black and fullbacks Sofia Paz, Addison McNeil, Ashley Browning set the tone early for what was a hard fought physical game. Seventeen minutes into the game Allison Edgemon took a through ball from Skye Merlin and streaked through the MBSL defense to score the game’s first goal on a well placed shot to the right side of the keeper.  The Pack would take a 1-0 lead into half. Spectacular midfield play from Aubrey Westbrook and Jazzlyn Gonzalez kept the Wolfpack in control of the game to start the second half. Skye Merlin hit the back of the net off a direct kick from outside the box to give the team their second goal of the game.  Cailey Sasaki and Taylor Conover where able to help keep the pressure on the Aztekitas defense all game and give the Wolfpack the 2-0 final victory. The team will play next Saturday in Manteca for the right to move on to the Norcal State finals of their group.
