SUMMARY:

The Impact came close to getting into the final for this tournament. They dominated the game against Manteca and went into the game against Capital Valley with confidence. They held the finalists to a tie and were unlucky to lose in the last few minutes against Delta Crunch

Livermore Impact vs Manteca

At 8am, on a very cold, wet, misty, Manteca morning the Livermore Impact took on tournament host, Manteca Rangers United. Players had a hard time keeping their footing on the slippery field and it took several minutes for them to adjust. The Impact took the lead about ten minutes into the game when a corner from John Mello found the head of Scott Lassey who placed it neatly over the keepers head. They didn't look back and scored another before half time, again from a John Mello corner. This time it was Kaelen Schlicker who found the back of the net. Seamus Lennon played very well in the second half and was in the right place at the right time during goal mouth scrambles. Seamus scored twice to make it 4-0 for the Impact. This was an excellent performance by the Impact especially since they were missing two players.
Goals by: Scott Lassey, Kaelen Schlicker, Seamus Lennon - 2
Assists: John Mello
Result: Livermore Impact 4, Manteca 0

Livermore Impact vs Capital Valley

Livermore lost 4-0 the last time they played Capital Valley but today it was a different story. The Impact fought hard and came back twice to earn a 2- 2 tie. It was a lobsided physical game. Livermore were awarded thirteen free kicks and gave away only three - one of which was a penalty - and goalkeeper, Andrew Dubatowka saved it. Jared Jamison, again, showed his goal scoring prowess with a goal in each half and marcus Richerson had some good saves in the second half. After two games the Impact were leading the division with a maximum point shut out and a tie.

Livermore Impact vs Delta Crunch

Expectations were high as the Impact faced the Delta Crunch in their final division game. The Crunch had lost to Blackhawk 5-2 and beaten Manteca 1-0 so the Impact certainly had a good chance to win the division and make the final. A tie would give them a place in the consolation game. It was a tense game, played in light to heavy rain. The Impact took the lead in the first half with a goal from John Mello and were definitely the dominant team. Early in the second half the Crunch equalized and from then on it was tense back and forth action - both teams obviously tired in the heavy conditions. Adam Davies came so close to putting the Impact ahead with a hard shot that hit the crossbar about five minutes from the end of the game. It was the Crunch, however, who prevailed within the final minute of the game and eliminated Livermore from both the final and consolation games with 17 points to Livermore's 16.
