West Coast’s new ’06 team, Krossfire, began their NorCal Premier Spring League with an 8-0 convincing win over EBU Bay Oaks Gold. Krossfire started out a little slow, but that ended in the 13th minute when Jasmine Branda netted a goal to put Krossfire up 1-0. Jasmine added to the Krossfire lead with a corner kick that deflected off the Bay Oaks’ goalie’s hands and into the net. Summer Lane then hit rocket off the crossbar that Jasmine was able to put in for a third Krossfire goal and a hat trick! Dakota Baird then finished off the first half scoring only a minute later as she connected on a pass from Summer for the 4th Krossfire goal.
The second half became a physical back and forth match as both teams tried to get scoring opportunities. Ariana Butler hit a free kick that was deflected by a Bay Oaks defender and into the net for an own goal. Krossfire then added three more goals near the end of the game, all within a couple minutes of each other. Alana Albarran punched one in. Ariana then connected with Adriana Paneda on a throw in that she took down the field and drilled in the net. Adriana followed that up with the 8th and final goal of the game. Krossfire hopes to take this winning momentum into next week’s league games as they will be squaring off against Montclair Clippers 06 Red and Walnut Creek SC 06G Blue.
