SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Cosumnes River Hawks Women Soccer team continues their dreams of a State Championship. The Hawks seeded #11 in the Nor Cal Playoffs traveled to #2 Modesto JC Saturday to take on the Pirates. In the previous two meetings the Pirates came away victorious with scores of 5-1 and 2-1.
With CRC being short handed with in game injuries to sophomores starters Brianna Ascencio (Cosumnes Oaks HS), Selina Barbosa (Pleasant Grove HS), and Korie Martin (Elk Grove HS) the Hawks battled with all their heart and soul to win this game. When in the second minute of the second 15 minute overtime period CRC was awarded a free kick 25 yards from goal. With left footed freshmen Kelsey Jantzen (Elk Grove HS) and right footed freshmen Erica Lim both standing over the ball, it was Erica who hit the shot that went around the wall to beat the Modesto keeper near post to score her 6th goal of the season. With 13 min left in the overtime the Hawks defended with everyone and with everything they had to the final whistle to secure the 1-0 win!
