With their new coach Troy Dayak at the helm the West Coast Soccer girls Wildkatz 05 team took to a larger field for the first time as they graduated to 11v11 play in the San Jose Invitational Tournament on the weekend of March 11th and 12th. In their first game of the tournament, the Wildkatz met DeAnza Force 06 from Santa Clara. In the first half of play the Wildkatz dominated play and took the lead 2-0. In the second half of play Wildkatz scored again and help Force scoreless to claim a 3-0 victory. In the second game of day 1, Wildkatz met El Camino Real FC 05 from Salinas. The Wildkatz showed great teamwork and passing skills throughout the game. The defense blocked each goal attempt made by EC Real and Wildkatz to another W 2-0. In the second day of tournament play, Wildkatz met LFC Academy from the Bay Area in the semi-finals. With a couple games under their belt the Wildkatz were now firing on all cylinders completely controlling the game. LFC was unable to attempt any shots on goal and the Wildkatz won 7-0. For the championship game, Wildkatz met longtime rival UC Fuego from Union City. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and both teams came to play hard in the final but Wildkatz were to much for UC Fuego to handle winning 3-0. Wildkatz shut out their opponents in all four games with a 15-0 goal differential and took home their first championship of the year. “I’m extremely excited to work with the 05 girls. Our coaching staff at West Coast did an outstanding job developing this entire age group at a young age, they are ready to take the jump to full field 11v11 game” said West Coast DOC and head coach Troy Dayak. Next up for Wildkatz is spring league play which begins in April.
