U19 Girls 2019 NorCal State Cup Quarterfinals Recap

U19 GIRLS STATE QUARTERFINAL A
4/28Livermore Fusion
3-2
Sacramento United
At the break, this tie appeared to be already decided as Sacramento United led Livermore Fusion by three goals thanks to strikes from Ally Lassetter, Cassandra Herman and Marwah Abdali, whose absolute golazo seemed to seal the game. But Livermore clawed back into it and made things interesting thanks to a brace from Danielle Castro. Still, the Fusion couldn’t get that important third goal and were forced to bow out of the competition.
U19 GIRLS STATE QUARTERFINAL B
4/28Ceres Earthquake Elite

(OT)
West Coast SC
When Edith Larranaga scored the 97th-minute winner to cap this game, it had already gone through the gauntlet of emotions for both the winning Ceres Earthquake and the losing West Coast Soccer. Ceres scored first through Jocelyn Lopez before a brace from Savannah Bonne gave the Tracy side a one-goal advantage. That turned into a two-goal advantage when Megan Clifton scored on a flashing header for West Coast in the 68th minute, only for Ceres to score goals from Agigail Martinez and Larranaga in the last 15 minutes to take the game to overtime, where they won.

Kylie Lucero had a first-period brace to go along with goals from Brooklin Woolf, Melania Scanlan, and Samantha Tristen, who all hit the back of the net before the break. In the second half, Madilyn Hernandez and Scanlan added strikes to make the scoreline 7-0.
