NorCal Bronze Division
Alameda SC Islanders '00 3, El Cerrito FC Spurs 1: The Islanders started a weekend pair of games with a beautiful one-touch volley goal from Maia Chareonsuphiphat. Minutes later, Maia sent a through ball up the middle to Olivia Sprouse, who beat out two defenders and the goalie to score the second goal of the game and her seventh goal of the season. Maia continued to drive down the middle and scored the Islander's third goal. Contributing to a game filled with threatening crosses and shots on goal were Annabella Pirrotta, Mackenzie Gorman-Miller, Olivia Low, and Jean Choi. Center backs Katie Hung and Katie Cheung kept the defensive line solid.
Alameda SC Islanders '00 2, Montclair SC Clippers White 0: The Islanders earned a shutout victory and ended the spring season with an undefeated record. Attacking midfielder Zoe Peterson and defending midfielders Katie Cheung and Hannah Corpuz owned the middle of the pitch, winning fifty-fifty balls, preventing Montclair from building momentum through the middle, and expertly distributing the ball to open attackers. Smart positioning placed Corpuz at the top of the box in time to fire a well-placed shot into the upper left corner of the goal to start the scoring. Peterson scored next off of a penalty kick to seal the win. Goalie Katie Modic ended the season with her third shutout. A very special thanks to guest player Ashley Chu from Steve Adam's team, who has provided outstanding defensive play during numerous games this season.
