The West Coast Kryptonite 07 Girls headed to Mather Sports Complex to face off against the San Juan White 07, in the first Winter League game of the season. The matchup pitted two talented teams who are preparing for next weekends state cup matches in their respective groups.
Earthquakes 05 boys finished off State Cup second round with a bang. On Saturday WCS Quakes played Palo Alto SC White 05, the game was a tug of war in the first half resulting in no goals by either team. Although the game was at 0-0 tie there were many opportunities by both sides. Quakes goalkeeper Sergio Jueregui blocked Palo Alto attempts and in the second half Diego Collazo broke the tie, scoring off a rebound from a free kick that lead the Earthquakes 1-0 win in game two. On Sunday evening the Quakes took on Tottenham Hotspurs 05 Blue, in the first 2 minutes Diego Collazo scored from a nice assist from his brother Emanuel but Tottenham came right back and scored.
Krytonite kept the pressure on from the opening whistle with well executed passes and all out hustle. San Juan had a few runs of their own but couldn’t get through West Coast defense of Nylah Trias, Kendall Shetter, and Madden Black. West Coast got the offense going when Ryan Rodriguez turned a defender and launched a ball into the corner of the goal for a 1-0 lead. Not soon after, San Juan was awarded a penalty kick. GK Piper Sweeney made an amazing save and turned away the second shot to preserve the lead. In the second half Kryptonite turned it up a notch and the flood gates opened. Jariah Indalecio poured in two goals, Kambrie Jehs powered in a goal, and Sweeney slide tackled a goal as well. The midfield of Ella Nguyen and Aubrey Westbrook played very strong. Nikki Orth and Athena Taylor made several attempts on goal, while Skyler Patillo and Jayden Reynolds were solid playing multiple positions. The West Coast Kryptonite finished with a 5-0 victory. Coach Sara Girotto said “I was very happy with the energy the girls showed today. It didn’t matter how I moved the players around positionwise, the girls never missed a beat and played outstanding soccer.”
Twenty minutes later Melvin Torres scored and gave WEST COAST EARTHQUAKES a lead at end of 1st half. In second half Daniel Valverde scored, assisted by Diego Collazo giving the Earthquakes a two goal lead but Tottenham came back and scored again. With 10 minutes left in regulation Angad Bains scored off a corner kick rebound securing the Earthquakes victory with a final score of 4 to 2. West Coast Earthquakes are an official affiliate of the San Jose Earthquakes Professional Organization and are overseen by former MLS Earthquakes Hall of Famer Troy Dayak.
