Livermore Impact vs Stockton

The Livermore Impact U13 A/C team opened their season at the Stockton Classic Tournament with a tough game against tournament favorites Stockton Pride. The Impact started well and gave up a single goal in the first half. The second half was more eventful. The Stockton Pride scored another three but the Impact made their first goal when Dustin Silva trapped the ball at the half way line and hit a long ball past defenders for Jason Moitoso to run onto. Jason was very cool as he took the ball to the keeper, lobbed it surgically over him and into the net. Motivation seems key to the team - coach Glen Silva, perhaps searching for sponsors was clearly heard to remind his team that "This is NOT a Kodak Moment" which brought many laughs from Impact supporters.
Result: Stockton 4, Livermore Impact 1
Goals by: Jason Moitoso

Livermore Impact vs Capital Valley

The Impact worked hard to stop the Capital Valley Blackhawks but were outplayed. A second own goal didn't help the Impact (the first was against Stockton) and it was clear that the team had to regroup.
Result: Capital Valley 4, Livermore Impact 1

Livermore Impact vs Manteca

The Livermore Impact dominated this game. Weird and wacky goals for Manteca distorted the result. Goals came thick and fast in the first half. Seamus Lennon scored first and followed up with an excellent shot a few minutes later. The keeper was unable to hold onto the ball and Jason Moitoso was in the right place at the right time to tap the ball in. The Manteca Rangers replied a few moments later to pull one back. An excellent corner from Seamus Lennon went straight to John Mello who made it 3-1. The Impact defense was caught off guard twice as the half approached. Tow breakaways for the Manteca Rangers resulted in two more goals and the half ended 3-3. There was an intensity about the Livermore Impact attack in the second half. Manteca were frustrated and tried everything to defend. They went too far and several minutes into the second half gave up a penalty. Jared Jamison struck the ball well and hit the back of the net. Impact defenders held the Rangers at bay and only in the final moments of the game seemed vulnerable. It was tense for a few minutes but the final whistle blew and the Impact had won their first game.
Result: Livermore Impact 4, Manteca 3
Goals by: Seamus Lennon, Jason Moitoso, John Mello, Jared Jamison

SUMMARY:

The Impact came in third in the division. Stockton won with 30, Capital Valley second with 22, Impact 3rd with 11 and Manteca last with 4. Seamus Lennon was outstanding. His penetrating runs, long accurate corners, and skill were very evident in all three games and especially in the win over Manteca. Jared Jamison has skill, consistency, and in mid-field is perhaps the pivot to lever the Impact to more goals. Marcus Richerson anchors the defence.
