On the way to another finals appearance, the Wild defeated San Juan 2-0 in the quarterfinals, and Davis Legacy 2-1 in the semifinals. In the finals, the Wild faced off against Santa Clara Sporting Green and after trailing 1-0 early the Wild rallied in the second half when Hanna Beauchamp found Sydni Lunt for the game-tying score. The game went to overtime and the Wild quickly scored when Beauchamp slotted the ball to Kassidee Wiley, who found the net past the keeper. The win marks the Wild's second consecutive title, a first for all Livermore soccer teams.
With the State Cup victory, the Wild also earned a spot in the U.S. Club National Championship competition in Greensboro, N.C. on July 18-2.
