West Coast Soccer’s Wildkatz 05 Girls began 2019-2020 NorCal State Cup play with a match against Mavericks 05 in Berkeley. Wildkatz dominated play from the first whistle and had several shot on goal before Kamiryn Grimes found the back of the net putting Wildkatz on the board early. A foul by Mavericks allowed Madison Reid to take the free kick, Reid sent the ball over the Maverick’s defenders and skipped past the keeper into the goal. Wildkatz weren’t done scoring in the first half, yet, Zusette Zamora made some swift moves bursting past the mavericks outside back and smashed a booming shot up and over the Gk ending the first half with Wildkatz leading 3-0. Miette Sessoms used her power and speed to get the second half started with a dribble own the sideline and a beautiful shot into the back of the net. Wildkatz continued to keep Mavericks from getting any shots on goal and Savannah Cordero widened Wildkatz lead to five with a shot past the keeper. Jayden King got the next goal with a laser shot on an assist by Miette Sessoms. With just minutes left in play, Zamora would seal the 7-0 win for Wildkatz with a header into the net from a corner kick. “Today’s state cup game was a great team effort, each player did their job perfectly” said West Coast Head Coach Troy Dayak. Next up for Wildkatz play an NPL Champions League match against cross-town rival, Pleasanton Rage 05 ENCL on Sunday, October 6th.
