2010/11 Season

Spring League:
The team played in the Norcal Premeir Soccer Spring League (U13 Premier Region 6,7,8). Finished 5th out of 10 teams with a record of 4 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws. A good showing for a team with a  large number of new players.

Sonoma County Classic Tournament:
U14 Girls are Finalists in Sonoma 
The Boca 96G team faced a lot of challenges going into the Sonoma County Classic Tournament. The team has a small roster of fourteen players, eight of which are new to the club this year and two of the players were injured. On the positive side, the team has a lot of enthusiasm, plays hard every game and had help from two U13 Boca players.

The first game was against a strong Marin FC squad. The game was well played by both sides with Boca having more time of possession and scoring opportunities. The only goal came from a corner kick that Annie Ware directed into the net. Annie Ware and Caroline Kaniff, our two U13 players, were big contributors the whole weekend and deserve a lot of credit for the success of the team during the tournament.

The second game was against FC Milpitas. Once again the Boca team possessed the ball well but was challenged at every turn by a very physical Milpitas team. Milpitas took an early 1-0 lead but it wasn’t long before Boca struck back. Boca’s first goal came from a breakaway by Savannah Watson. Savannah took possession of the ball at midfield and turned on her blazing speed. Numerous defenders chased her but Savannah calmly shot the ball low and hard passed the goalie. The second goal was an amazing shot by Jessica Adger. Jessica took possession deep on the left side of the offensive zone, found space between defenders and struck a whirling-curving ball that hit the upper portion of the far post and bounced in. The final goal came from Savannah Watson when she steered a corner kick from Lizzie Merrill into the net. It was a great 3-1 comeback against a very physical team on a hot Saturday afternoon. The team met later that evening for dinner and a few laughs at a local pizza parlor.

The third game was on Sunday at noon against the host club Sonoma County Alliance GN. Once again, the Boca team possessed the ball well and controlled the game. The only scores came from two free kicks just outside the penalty area. Lizzie Merrill turned both of those opportunities into scores with rocket shots into the far upper corner of the goal. Boca wins the game 2-0 and advances to the championship game.

At the end of group-play Boca had an aggregate goal total of 6-1. Aubrey Hall had an outstanding weekend in goal. Not only did Aubrey protect the goal, her passes and goal kicks setup offensive opportunities. The center backs Aly Pachter and Rachel Schaefer frustrated the attacking forwards with speed, determination and ball control. Renny Castanon used her right-back position to attack and defend wearing a path to both end lines. Savannah Droke and Carmel Stralen used their midfield positions to gain possession and initiate the offense. 

 

The championship game was a hard-fought affair that Boca lost 1-0 to Placer Blues. It was a well-played game by both sides. Boca hit the crossbar with a shot from Lizzie Merrill and Savannah Droke missed scoring by a few inches over the top. It was a great weekend of soccer.

 

Fall League:

CHAMPIONS NORCAL PREMIER FALL LEAGUE REGION 6

The fall league started out in similar fashion to the Spring League with 2 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw. The team chemistry kicked in and Boca won the last 6 games of the season. This was a remarkable achievement given the number of new players and injuries to key players.
