The South Tahoe Futbol Club U13 Girls, Tahoe Revolution, team is headed to the State Cup Championship in Modesto on Dec. 9.
The soccer team this past weekend won the quarter and semifinals of the NorCal Premier State Cup.
The Revolution battled in the quarter final to win 4-3 against Central Valley Premier from Visalia. The game was scoreless at the end of regulation, necessitating two overtimes. A shootout ultimately determined the winner, sending the Revolution to the semi-finals the following day.
The next day the revolution competed against Sunnyvale Alliance, which once again ended in a shootout resulting in a 3-0 win. The winner was decided with goals from Malia Solis, Anna Sharpe, and Isabel Wigart, including a stunning performance from goal keeper Leah Nisenfeld.
The entire team played a stellar weekend of soccer, with every team member contributing to the team’s success. It was a hard fought, suspenseful and emotional battle that resulted in an opportunity to compete for the NorCal State Cup this next weekend, said Russell Wigart, assistant Coach of the Revolution.
This weekend was a true test of mental mettle from the team. These 12 year olds have demonstrated all season that there are no limits with this passionate bunch. They stepped up to the penalty mark not once, but twice in two games; putting their stamp on a ticket to the State Cup Championship game, said Joaquin Solis, head coach of the Revolution.
The Tahoe revolution will compete against South Valley Chivas Academy from Porterville for the championship on Saturday at 1pm in Modesto.
