CYSA State Cup
The Livermore Impact ended their AC season when they went up
against three strong teams in the California State Cup in
Sacramento. They showed courage, strength, determination and
skill today and throughout the season. Outstanding players for
the season were Jared Jamison, top goalscorer for offence and
Marcus Richerson on defence.
Livermore Impact vs Placerville
The Impact opened the CYSA State Cup against a strong Placerville
team. Placerville took the lead after ten minutes and followed
up with a second, from a corner, a few minutes later. Andrew
Dubatowka, in goal, had some great saves and handled the very
muddy goalmouth conditions very well. Placerville effectively
neutralized the Impact offense, though they had many fouls and on
one occasion were yellow carded. Placerville scored two more in
the second half to make the final score 4-0.
Result: Livermore Impact 0, Placerville 4
Livermore Impact vs Watsonville
Watsonville was arguable the best team Livermore has played all
year. The Impact went down 7-0 and had only a couple of shots on
goal. It fell to the Livermore defence, a pulled back attack and
goalkeeper Marcus Richerson to weather the storm. Kaelen
Schlicker headed the ball off the line in the first half.
Result: Livermore Impact 0, Watsonville 7
Livermore Impact vs Turlock
The Impact knew this would be a tough game and came out with
determination. They played hard and fought well, especially in
the last 15 minutes of the game, sparked by a good goal by John
Mello who lobbed the ball over the tall, Turlock goalkeeper's
head. This single goal by the Impact denied Turlock from a shut
out and may have prevented Turlock from winning the flight.
In conclusion, the Impact have improved considerably over the
season thanks to hard work by the team and good coaching from
Glenn Silva, Gary Mello and Hugh Kinnear. They have a good
foundation for next year.
