Youth soccer

Fairfield-Suisun YSl

U6 Boys

Sharks vs. Tornadoes: The last game of the season showed the passing game was improved. All the boys had become much more aware of their teammates and the need to pass and use the team as a whole. Varanvir Thandi, Harman Binning and Dominic Delgado played the front line moving the ball up field. Jerrell Ramos had some nice throw-ins and dribbled well.

U8 Boys

Avengers 5, Earthquakes 3: Goalie Matthew Flores blocked all attempts by the Earthquakes in the first half.  In the third quarter, the Earthquakes made a strong comeback despite of the defensive effort by Mitchel Major and the score was tied. On offense, Diego Torres and Moises Amador took control of the ball and managed to score two goals.

U14 Boys

Fireballs 7, Assassins 3: The Fireballs ended their season on a high note. Adrian Quijano was strong in the midfield, attacking the ball and getting it up to the forwards. Kaidden Coleman was quick on defense, and scoring on offense.  Carson Merodio stayed aggressive in defending the goal, successfully blocking many drives.  Jeffrey Salvacruz played well as goalkeeper, blocking multiple shots to hold the Assassins off.

U10 Girls

Lady Lightning 5, Pixie Hollow Fairies 2: Ashley Flores was all over the ball, consistently moving it.  Lara Gonzalez and Jessica Waters both played hard at forward, each scoring a goal. Ariana Aguilar defended the goalbox aggressively and came up with some good saves.

Fighting Daisies 2, Cheetahs 0: The Fighting Daisies started with a quick goal at the beginning of the first half.  The Daisies’ defense played well with Alyssa Linehan making good plays, Lizzette Cuevas and Vanessa Fortenberry controlling the midfield.  Breanna Suarez assisted on the final goal of the game.

Fighting Daisies 4, Pink Tornados 0: The first half ended without a goal, with Samantha Alvarez and Mia Covarrubias leading the Daisies defense. Then the Daisies offense started the second half with some good passing and teamwork that lead to goals by Madison Denny, Alexis Barlas, and two goals by Elicia Canning.

U12 Girls
Phoenix Force 1, Fairfield United 1: In the first half, Melanie Hernandez scored.  Ashlyn Haddon did a good job in goal. In the second half, Elon Wallace and Kaylee Christianson both did well in leading the team offensively.

U19 Girls

Capitols 8, Tornadoes 1: The first half was hard played with both sides very evenly matched. Megan Welsh scored four goals, Eliana Galdamez scored three and Karina Rubio also scored. Natasha Palacios played tough as sweeper.

Solano Soccer Club

U12 Boys

SSC Manchester 4, Chico Cobras 1: Nilesh Sandhu ran through the defense and passed the ball onto Alex Serratos, who gave the home team the lead. Sandhu assisted again as he cut the ball back from the goal line for Serratos to tap the ball in. In the second half, Sandhu penetrated the defense once again, passed the ball around the goalkeeper for Rasheen Frazier to run onto and fire the ball into the net. The visitors got a goal back before Frazier made a solo run through the defense and finished off the scoring.
