The tournament started with LAFC Black up against AC Brea on a cold and rainy Saturday morning. After a solid 2-0 win with high quality goals scored by Kaitlyn Kelleher and Hailey James, the rain began to pick up. The team was to face Fram CQ in their second match of the day. A great goal by Kaelin King saw LAFC up 1-0 at the half. The second half was a repeat of the first, but it soon became obvious that LAFC Black was the more fit of the two teams. A magnificent save by substitute goal keeper Katie Smither, saw not only her second clean sheet of the day, but allowed LAFC Black to advance 1-0 into the semi-finals. LAFC Black would face the Slammers FC G95 in the final. Slammers FC is a Gold team and a formidable opponent! A talented and quick Slammers team moved the ball well and scored a goal within the first five minutes of play. LAFC Black was not to be deterred and battled back. A great defensive contest ensued that saw both sides playing very well. A quick breakaway once again saw Kaelin King score the equalizer and both teams went into the half tied at 1-1. During the second half, with approximately 12 minutes left to play, a great cross into the six yard box saw Hailey James finish and LAFC Black was up 2-1. Once again the midfield and defense played well and secured Black’s 2-1 victory and the Championship!
