0-0
(PK's)
Union Sacramento
After winning their Round of 16 matchup on kicks from the mark, SF Elite pulled off the feat again, defeating Union Sacramento on penalties after a scoreless draw for the second straight round. Both sides had a number of chances to win the game in regulation and overtime but failed to do so, sending the game to kicks from the mark, where Elite proved to be the better squad at converting.
U14 GIRLS STATE QUARTERFINAL D
4/27California Odyssey
1-1
(PK's)
Ajax United Green
Despite losing by six goals to California Odyssey just two weeks ago, Ajax United came out seemingly a completely different squad, scored first, ended up prevailing in this quarterfinal to move on to the semifinals. And it was Ajax who struck first as a penalty that hit the post rebounded to find the feet of Jenna Dean who made no mistake from close range. Odyssey leveled the game just three minutes later through Ava Medrano, but no more goals would be scored from there and Ajax were able to stand tall through the gauntlet that is penalties.
