West Coast 05 girls made the journey south to the beautiful Silverlakes Soccer Complex where they competed in a 20 team BMW bracket. Wildkatz started off a little slow falling behind local SoCal club Future FC.
“We needed to get the travel out of our legs and take care of some tactical adjustments, once we took care of that everything fell in place for the rest of the weekend” said Coach Troy Dayak, former Olympian and US National team and World Cup player.
West Coast would power through Future FC with an exciting 3-2 victory goals by Jackie Bellamy, Addison Sanchez & Hayden Romero.
Second day Wildkatz matched up against Surf South Valley. Wildkatz continued their clinical play winning 3-0 with goals coming from Jadynn King, Jackie Bellamy and Addison Sanchez.
On the final day West Coast played local SoCal Club Legends FC. The match was back and forth until Addison Sanchez broke the deadlock with an outstanding turn and volley. West Coast Defense led by GK’s Elizabeth LoForte and Abby Tucker held strong securing the shutout. Defenders Mary Jane Anzo, Madison Reid, Jordan Sawyer, Gabi Rodriguez, Kayla Cochenour played solidly all weekend while the creative midfield of Josette Davila, Jadynn King, Renee Davis, Hayden Romero, Kira Korsak & Natalia Umana all rotated in to keep the center fresh and explosive. Forwards Mia Degrazio, Gracie Ronveaux, Jackie Bellamy and Addison Sanchez struck fear on the oppositions defense. Overall West Coast Wildkatz scored 7 goals and only allowed 2 winning all three Showcase games. Next up West Coast travels with three teams to Arizona for the GA fall Showcase.
