West Coast Wild traveled to Orinda to play Lamorinda on Saturday. Knowing this would be a fast paced game they started off with high press which resulted in a goal by Kasidee Wiley in under a minute. With both teams playing great soccer Lamorinda capitalized on a miss play by the wild which resulted in a goal. The wild continued to move the ball and high press and Sydni Lunt put the ball in the back of the net. Shortly after Devyn Gilfoy had a ripper shot that hit off the crossbar right to Melissa Ellis who headed it in. Halftime the score stood at 3-1. Second half was controlled nicely by the Wild. Near the end of the game Delanie Sheehan took a shot from about 20 yards out which gave the Wild an impressive 4-1 win over top rank LaMorinda.
After a strong 4-1 performance vs LaMorinda West Coast Wild traveled to Modesto to play the new CVFC team at Mary Grogan sports complex. Central Valley came out strong hoping to make their mark against the 3 time state champions and 2 time national champions Wild. CVFC held strong diverting several goal scoring chances by Wild forwards. After a few adjustments Kasidee Wiley found Robyn McCarthy off of a corner to break the seal. Just a few minutes later Melissa Ellis took a pass and hit a 30 yard rocket into the upper V of the goal. Delanie Sheehan took a pass from Lauren Sisneros and gave the Wild a three point lead going into halftime. Second half CVFC once again came out strong wanting to prove that they can compete in the CRL the top division in CalNorth. Wild took advantage on a tactical change and it payed off as local player from Mountain House Miciah Madison sent a shot in on goal that was blocked and Lauren Sisneros was in the right spot to put in the fourth and final goal of the game. Wild ended the weekend with two impressive victories out scoring opposition 8-1 playing in the two top leagues in California, Norcal- NPL & CalNorth- CRL.
