The ASC Islanders 2006 Girls brought home the Kick-or-Treat Tournament championship hosted by the Fremont Youth Soccer Club on October 27th and 28th. This tournament was all about the girls showcasing their growth and development over this season. They began the season with a shaky 0-4 tournament performance in August. Now, they dominated their age group by going undefeated and conceding only 1 goal in the final 90 seconds of tournament play. BA-BOOM! This success was truly a team effort.
The impressive defensive stand was led by Kate Sikora (defensive mid), Sophie Moser (right D), Josie Farris (left D), Kate Burgess (center D), Dani Petersen (center D) and 4 shutout halves by Soren Firestone as goalie. Sarah Grace Powell (striker) led the attack with 4 goals and 3 assists over the two-day tournament. Ivy Ausmus (wing forward) scored 2 goals, and Gracie Martin (wing forward), Zuni Zapeta-Huggans (attacking mid), and Sikora each scored a goal. Two of Powell’s goals came off of direct free kicks. Martin’s goal was the most impressive of the tournament, as it was a powerful one-touch finish off of a long cross from Powell. Martin’s goal was in the final game and served as a fitting punctuation to the team’s dominant performance throughout the tournament. Hana Thomas (wing forward, attacking mid), Jaena Freeman (striker, attacking mid), Maddie Sanchez (wing forward), Ruby Rawski (wing and mid), and Savanna Stollman (attacking mid) all made important contributions controlling the mid-field or forward attack with their give-and-goes, overlaps, steals, switches, and through-passes.
Teammates Jardena Kully and Olivia Martin were unable to attend, but have been crucial to helping this team develop and achieve this level of success.
The girls went as hippies on the first day. Thank you to Jen Firestone and Merri Rawski for costume design and coordination! We wish to thank all of the parents for taking time out to support our team and cheer us on!
