U15 Girls State Quarterfinals Recap

U15 GIRLS STATE QUARTERFINAL A
5/6Marin FC
2-1
Davis Legacy
In a match that featured fireworks at the start, it was the defensive prowess that Marin showed that allowed them to power through to the semifinals. Twelve minutes into the game, this appeared to be a shootout, with Eloise Ryersen scoring the opener for Marin FC in the fifth before Niya Allen equalized for Davis Legacy just four minutes later. Oliva Carroll bagged a goal just three minute’s after Allen’s many would have predicted more to come, but Marin locked it down from there, with the Legacy failing to make many major forays into the attacking third.
U15 GIRLS STATE QUARTERFINAL B
5/6CV SJ Earthquakes
1-5
Vision
In the only match not played at Mary Grogan Park over the weekend, Vision dominated the CV Earthquakes in a South Bay derby to put Vision in the semifinal. The match was essentially over in the first 34 minutes as Maddilyn Eastus, Elizabeth Buerk and Olivia Edwards all tallied at the beginning of the match, before the Earthquakes brought one back right before halftime. The result was never in doubt, however, as Vision scored again in the 49th minute through Teresa Garcia, to keep the club alive for at least one more week.
U15 GIRLS STATE QUARTERFINAL C
5/6FC Elk Grove
1-0
EBU Bay Oaks
Recent NPL Champions League winners FC Elk Grove came into the quarterfinals with a reputation for being extremely tough to score on. That reputation proved accurate — but the only problem was that their opponents in NPL 1 side EBU Bay Oaks Gold matched their performance…at least for 62 minutes. Keona Makasini finally broke through, grabbing a late goal to keep Elk Grove’s hopes of a double alive.
U15 GIRLS STATE QUARTERFINAL D
5/6Placer United
2-0
Mustang Elite
Just three points separated these two squads in the NPL Champions League, and it showed for much of the middle part of this game, with both Placer United and Mustang SC failing to break down their well-known opponents. The pair had played the previous weekend at the NPL College Showcase, with Placer coming out to a 4-0 win. Though Placer couldn’t repeat their dominance in this game, Kate Wiley scored at the bookends — in the eight and 72nd minutes — to send United to a semifinal and Mustang home.
