West Coast Wildkatz U9G – The WildKatz from Livermore’s West Coast Soccer Club endured a challenging weekend, splitting two away games as they prepare for the second round of the NorCal State Cup two weeks away in Davis, CA.
The first match, Saturday in Alameda versus Bay Oaks, the Katz seemingly had more than just the opponent to worry about and fought valiantly in a 2-1 loss. Down 1-0 early in the second half, Teagan Conklin leveled the score assisted by Mary Jane Anzo. The WildKatz continued the momentum; however an unfortunate handball was called. The well placed penalty kick sealed a 2-1 defeat.
Sunday was a new day for the soccer ladies from Livermore, once again travelling away to Walnut Creek versus Chelsea. The girls while not in top form showed true grit to come away with a 1-0 victory thanks to an early second half goal from Jayden Morton. Defensive standouts in the shutout were led by goalkeepers, Catie Carlson and Ellia Revino. Mia Marks, Jade Castillo and Anzo highlighted the effort in defense.
Anzo, Marks, Conklin, Maddie Flasck and Morton were all given recognition for their strong play and effort over the weekend.
The WildKatz now prepare for the second round of the NorCal State Cup as the #1 seed, November 2nd, with the Kick or Treat Tournament this weekend in Concord.
